Mrs Roisin McDermottBusiness Mentor & Trainer Seed Mentoring
I’m a Business Adviser, Mentor, Trainer, Project Manager, specialising in business start up, female entrepreneurship and social enterprise.
I quit Employment in 2009, after 13 years working for enterprise agencies, 7 of which I was the Manager of East Belfast Enterprise. During that time I lead the development and build of a £3m business centre (even though I had no construction skills!!). City East is now a thriving successful hub for business on the Lower Newtownards Road in close proximity of Belfast city centre.
I’m a mum of 3 kids with a hubby who works away a lot which is why being self-employed suits me. I also feel my own personal journey makes me a better mentor – as well as working on the business stuff I can identify with all the challenges of getting started and being a mumpreneur!!
Over the years I’ve worked a lot on social enterprise and sat on many Voluntary Boards. I’ve been supporting Specialisterne NI for 5 years, a social enterprise who help young people and adults with autism improve their job prospects and get into work. I am currently Treasurer and the only original Board member.
14 years ago I was one of the original founders of Women in Business. I had been running a programme with female entrepreneurs in the Greater Belfast area and it had just come to the end. The group said “Roisin we love our meetings, can you support us to keep meeting and invite more women along too?” And so it all began..I found funding, lead the set up of a Board and scheduled regular events. I was a Board Member for 7 years and now work for Women in Business on a freelance basis delivering programmes to startups.
I work on business mentoring, business training, project management, grant funding, group facilitation, business plans and strategy. I mainly work through Council programmes or for enterprise agencies or not for profit organisations. I have a degree in European Business Studies, and MBA and a Diploma in Digital Marketing.
