DigitalHQ clg are delighted to announce that Angela Tynan and Dermot Casey have join our Advisory Panel.
We recently announced that we successfully received support from Enterprise Ireland for our plans to scale up our offering to more small businesses next year. DigitalHQ have exciting plans for 2021 and our new panel members will be very helpful to this.
While the Board of DigitalHQ monitor and facilitate the progress of our not-for-profit company, the goal of the Advisory Panel is to form an informal group of people that are aligned with our mission, prepared to meet on an occasional basis and lean in on relevant projects/initiatives subject to their existing commitments.

In addition Angela manages the Enterprising Women and Link business networks on behalf of the Local Enterprise Office, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown.
