How many times have you heard people in business saying they’d love to get extra training in finance or law or people management? If they don’t say it explicitly they certainly say it implicitly every time you hear ‘…if I had known that it would have saved me a fortune’.
We asked a range of participants in our management development programmes to tell us what they thought and as well as our headline these are just some of the comments they offered us:
“The course enabled me to get a full understanding of the business and competitive environment we work in.”
“I feel each programme is worth about 5 years of hard-won experience…except the programmes are fun!”
“At last! A course that delivers exactly what our company needs.”
It’s Spring time
As well as acting as the industry lobby group for the 200,000 smaller Irish enterprises we also want Irish enterprises to be more successful through training. That’s why we run courses that we know are relevant to our members every Spring and Autumn. And guess what time of year it is? Yes, we’re just about to start our Spring series.
Time to come out of the cave
Having hidden in our business caves for the last six or seven horrible years we are all agreed that, appropriately for Spring, there’s growth happening again out there. To take advantage of that growth you and your management staff need to be trained in skills appropriate to your business. And that’s how our courses are fashioned.
Essential Management Skills – a certified programme for newly appointed managers/supervisors, or those who have yet to receive training, and who want to develop the fundamentals of management skills.
The Advance Business Programme – a certified programme for Owner Managers, and their senior managers, who need to understand all the key elements of running a business – strategy, operations, marketing, finance, employment law, people management, etc.
Transform Your Business – for Owner Managers, who wish to improve the productivity of their company, through reviewing the company structure, resource allocation and implementing performance management.
