Mountaineer and entrepreneur, Pat Falvey, helped the County and City Enterprise Boards launch the ‘Enterprise Mid-West’ initiative which was designed to help small business owners reach their full potential on the 22nd September..
Speaking at the launch, Eamon Ryan said: “The Enterprise Boards in the Mid-West are collectively staging fourteen different events during the the month of October, which is the largest ever initiative of it’s kind in the region”. It also coincided with the 2011 European Week for SME’s.
The Enterprise focused on Kerry, Limerick, North Tipperary and Clare for the month of October as host counties of ‘Enterprise Mid-West’. Aimed at the small business community and those thinking of setting up a business, highlights of the event included an inspirational talk from Everest mountaineer, Pat Falvey in Co. Clare and the events were all either highly subsidised by Mid-West County and City Enterprise Boards or free of charge.
"Just to say how much I enjoyed your presentation in Woodstock on Wednesday night. It really hit the nail on the head for the audience. Thank you so much and good luck."
Chief Executive Officer - Limerick City Enterprise Board
"Pat recently delivered a most inspiring presentation to a large group of owner/managers of SME’s in Ennis for Clare County Enterprise Board. During his 90 minutes, Pat totally captivated his audience while openly sharing the highs and lows of his own life experiences encompassing many emotions that went from success to fear to despair and again turning a corner in his life to experience hope, self-worth, peace, elation and success once again. I have no doubt those present went away that evening following Pat’s presentation, totally invigorated, with a renewed sense of hope and self belief for both their business and personal lives. Definitely, the best presentation I’ve experienced – Pat continued success, may you go from strength to strength!"
All the best

We are now living in tough times and we need to be positive to succeed, if we are not we will fail in achieving our goals.
I believe for people to move forward we have to accept the challenges that now face us. Yes, things are tough and for some this has been one of the hardest times in their lives. But unless we change from the doom and gloom that has beset our country, our people will not emerge from the gloom.
Too many people have a negative outlook to life and unless we can refocus to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we face a disastrous outcome.
Let’s look to the future with a positive attitude and make opportunities. Let’s change our negative thoughts to the positive ones.
We are where we are on planet earth and the most important attribute to a successful future is to accept our current situation. If need be, we should take our current situation to the worst case scenario and rebuild from that point. This is what I had to do in 1986 when I went broke and lost everything. My home was in the process of being repossessed; my companies faced liquidation and my personal life was in ruins. From the ashes of all of this and a change of attitude I fought back to live to fight another day. Opportunities arose from the height of a world depression. I then chose to see opportunity from my demise and the position I found myself in. I chose to see my glass as half full instead of half empty.
Like now I believe we are no longer in a recession, we are in a pre-boom period (how long we remain there I’m not sure). The future looks bright and by having a positive attitude we will prevail. As my grandmother drummed into me as a child “If you think you can you will, If you think you can’t you won’t.”
We are living in very challenging times, we would be fools to think otherwise. Economies are shifting their focus, businesses are reconfiguring and all of us have to be open to the challenge of change. This uncertainty dominates most people’s thoughts and for most they fear failure and the unknown.
But we have to be positive, more so then ever now it is the time to stand up and be counted as individuals and to be self lead. To succeed we need to change the country’s attitude, as Obama said “is feidir linn”. Yes we can. We need to be motivated to self leadership, team leadership, community leadership, company leadership and political leadership and to believe we will succeed.
For this month I will leave you with a verse that was given to me by my mother when I despaired most in my own life, when I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was in 1986 and I had lost everything. My self esteem, my confidence and self belief were at an all time low. I rebuilt my life from the ashes to go on and succeed in making all my dreams a reality. I have used the philosophy behind the verse of the following poem. I learnt that to fail is a journey to succeed if we learn from mistakes and never give up.
When thing’s go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road your trudging seems all uphill.
When funds are low and debts are high.
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is weird with its twist and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about.
When they might have won if they stuck it out:
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.
It’s when time go tough that you must not quit.
There have been many occasions I know in my own life where I would have failed if I had given up but I persisted even though I thought at times I had failed. So be positive, stay focused, rely on self-leadership and be the best that you can be and you will succeed. With that in mind I just want to wish you all the best in this “pre-boom period”. We now have more budding young entrepreneurs in the making then at any time in our past.

Pat Falvey was a guest speaker at the recent Invest Ireland Forum which was hosted by DCU Ryan Academy and Arizona State University. His presentation was on the spirit of adventure, entrepreneurship and success in a challenging, changing world. It was colourful, entertaining and brought home the attributes needed to succeed in a changing world.
The forum was a joint collaboration, bringing together venture capitalists, angel investors and the top companies in Ireland.
Mary Horan Chief Executive of the DCU Ryan Academy spoke about the fact that she hoped that this was just the first of Invest Ireland's many forums and thanked the American investors for showing such great interest in investing in Ireland and it's future.
The event was a hugely successful for both investors and the participating companies.
After the event Pat said "Ireland is still alive with amazing ideas with top class mangers and entrepreneurs that will ensure our country will always be one of the major places for investment by investors throughout the world."
Later that day, Pat flew off to Nepal to lead a group of Irish celebrities raise money for the street children of Calcutta for the Irish HOPE Foundation.

Pat Falvey has just returned from his well publicized expedition to The Himalaya with a group of Irish celebrities who were each given a task to push themselves Beyond their Endurance to achieve a task that most would have said would be impossible to achieve. Pat flew into Cork city to presented a lecture to an enthusiastic group of over a 100 entrepreneurial students at Cork University of Ireland who are members of the Entrepreneurial & Social Society.
His lecture on "Succeeding in a Recession" was based on his acclaimed presentation on Leadership and the 'Attributes of Success'.
"The Psychology Of Success" focuses on the ability for those with aspirations to succeed as a entrepreneur in a challenging and changing world.
His presentation focused on self belief, having vision and the benefit of a positive attitude in a changing environment. He spoke about the creation of new opportunities for those that seek them, in particular young blood with dreams. He spoke on the negativity besetting those that see no future and suggested that we look at the good the recession will bring. He said that we should look at our present status in time as a period of 'pre-boom time' and how to find ourselves. There are many opportunities for young enthusiastic entrepreneurs that believe! His message to the young audience was not to see failure as an end game but to see mistakes as a opportunity to learn.
His parting advice was to be confident no matter what life throws at you and don't give up your dreams and always have a 'go-for-it attitude.'
"On behalf of the committee of the Entrepreneurial and Social Society in University College Cork, please accept my most sincere thanks. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit to University College Cork and it was a pleasure listening to your presentation which was as colourful, intriguing, interesting, motivating and captivating as you are Pat." ~ David Murray
