Key to recession survival revealed
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.
