Local Enterprise Office launch highly-regarded Owner-Manager Development programme once again

Are you the manager or owner of a business in Laois?

Does the day to day running of your business take you away
from long term business planning? Why not take part in the Owner Manager Development Programme being run by the Local Enterprise Office.

The course is given by the highly-regarded business mentor and author Blaise Brosnan, and is designed to help your business develop to its full growth potential, this programme will run over 15 weeks from Tuesday, September 4 until Tuesday, December 11 (8am–1pm).

Aimed at owner-managers of businesses in County Laois, the objective of the programme is to help participating businesses achieve their growth potential, and manage their existing growth, through a series of group training workshops and individual consultancy meetings.

To date this programme has assisted hundreds of Owner Managers across Ireland to significantly improve their businesses and has received excellent feedback from participants, most stating that it is the best thing they ever did for their business.

“I would highly recommend the Management Development Programme to any business owner,” said Paddy O’Connell, owner of Paddy O’s Cereals.

“The trainer, Blaise Brosnan, offered his vast experience and facilitated a great learning environment. This course will definitely have a very positive economic impact on my business.”

Barry Lambkin, owner of Medichem Ltd based in Emo, also spoke very highly of the programme.

“I attended the Management Development programme at a time when I knew that I needed to re-evaluate my business goals and really consider how we were doing things.

“The time that I took to attend the programme has been the best investment that I have ever made in the business as it allowed me the opportunity to assess every aspect of the business.

“I would recommend this programme to any business owner or manager who would like to spend their time developing their company more efficiently and effectively.”
