AS PART of the Training and Mentoring Programme for Enniskillen retail and hospitality businesses, Fermanagh Enterprise Ltd has organised an Information Seminar on eBay trading.


Fermanagh Enterprise Ltd has commissioned eBay entrepreneur Michael Hughes to deliver the event which will facilitate local companies to increase sales and reach new markets.

John Treacy, the general manager of Fermanagh Enterprise Ltd, told the Fermanagh Herald that the initiative was just one of a series of responses to the economic changes which have characterised commerce in the 21st century.

“Indigenous companies simply must have an internet presence if they are to thrive in today’s highly competitive global marketplace.”

Michael Hughes was the first eBay trained and accredited Education Specialist in Ireland and the first five star instructor (the highest ranking possible) in the UK or Ireland.

His own eBay store has sold over 36,000 items and he has client companies in Northern Ireland selling over £1 million per year on eBay.

The training will be launched with a three hour illustrated presentation delivered by Michael.

It is designed to enable attendees to make informed decisions as to whether or not eBay is a suitable platform from which to grow their business and will feature live demonstrations on how to bid, buy and sell items on eBay.


The event will be held on Wednesday 17 September 2014 from 10.00 am to 1.00 p.m. in the Fermanagh District Council Offices, Intec Centre, 36 East Bridge Street, Enniskillen.

Funding for the event has been secured by Fermanagh District Council from the Department for Social Development.
