Key to re­ces­sion sur­vival re­vealed

Bray People - - Bray People -

EN­TREPENEURS were told at the Glen­view Ho­tel last Thurs­day evening that strong and ef­fec­tive man­age­ment is the key to get­ting through the present eco­nomic cli­mate.

This was the dom­i­nant mes­sage at the re­cent Wick­low County En­ter­prise Board pre­sen­ta­tion of cer­tifi­cates event in the Glen­view Ho­tel. Over fifty owner man­agers of busi­nesses in County Wick­low par­tic­i­pated in the event at which thirty three com­pa­nies re­ceived cer­tifi­cates.

Leo Casey, Di­rec­tor of the Cen­tre for Re­search and In­no­va­tion in Learn­ing and Teach­ing at the Na­tional Col­lege of Ire­land pre­sented the cer­tifi­cates for the Knowl­edge Econ­omy Skills Pro­gramme (KESP).

Pre­sent­ing the Man­age­ment De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme (MDP) cer­tifi­cates for the sec­ond year in a row was Colm Kelly, Head of Man­age­ment Stud­ies at the In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy Car­low. The pro­gramme has been an in­cred­i­ble suc­cess for all the busi­nesses who have par­tic­i­pated over the past ten years in County Wick­low.

‘Tonight is an oc­ca­sion for cel­e­bra­tion,’ said County Man­ager Ed­die Sheehy, who is also chair of the En­ter­prise Board.

At the grad­u­ates cer­e­mony for the Knowl­edge Econ­omy Skills Pass­port pro­gramme was the group with Shee­lagh Daly, Leo Casey and Ed­die Sheehy in the Glen­view Ho­tel.
