Enterprise Board introduces new business therapy progamme

The Tipperary North County Enterprise Board this week launched their autumn training calendar which targets both potential and existing entrepreneurs.  A new business therapy programme  titled SMACHT involving four intensive workshops backed by individual support is the Board’s latest offering and will be rolled out this autumn delivered by well known business coach and trainer Padraig O’Maille.   SMACHT requires owner/managers to commit to 4 half day intensive workshops (one per month) and sessions will address Strategy, Money, Attitude, Connections, Health and Time Management. Participants will be expected to set clear and measurable goals at the outset which will be measured throughout the programme.  Each participant will be allocated a ‘Smacht Cara’ from the group –  a mentor/coach to work with to give feedback and check on progress.  Peer accountability is seen as a very powerful and motivating element of this  new programme.  SMACHT will commence on 26 September and places are limited to just  14 so early booking is essential.


The Enterprise Board is offering 13 courses and workshops this autumn in addition to a wide  range of enterprise supports such as grants, mentoring, management development, website, exhibition and  trade fair subvention.  The Enterprise Board is the “first stop shop” for anyone looking to start or grow a business and meetings can be arranged at their Nenagh or Thurles offices.  If online support is your preferred option why not register for www.NUBIE.com  which can give you step by step instructions on how to start, fund, manage and grow your business. The Tipperary North County Enterprise Board has teamed up with NUBIE.com to offer one year’s free access to start-up businesses in North Tipperary which can be accessed through the Board’s website www.tnceb.ie

All courses may be booked on-line at www.tnceb.ie/training.htm.    Early booking is advised as numbers are strictly limited and places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. The unemployed or BTWA beneficiaries should contact the Board’s offices or their Job Facilitator (who will be required to vouch their status in order to qualify for free course places).


Before this year is out, if you need to  sharpen your management skills, regenerate your business or  examine self employment as an alternative, contact the  Tipperary North County Enterprise Board, Connolly Street, Nenagh at 067-33086, www.tnceb.ie or e-mail info@tnceb.ie.  County and City Enterprise Boards are funded by the Irish Government and by the European Union.
