"Participation on the Business Innovation Programme has provided me with a brand new skill-set as well as the confidence to take a much broader approach to seeking employment. As a direct result of participating, I now have a wonderful employment opportunity, highly marketable skills and, thanks to the in-company placement, direct experience in applying these skills to business challenges. I cannot recommend the Business Innovation Programme highly enough."
Debbie Slevin, Operations Specialist, Mercers
“The Business Innovation Program was the best decision I made in 2011, the program was inspiring & creative, and the programme gave me confidence in myself and the capability to create my own business to secure my future."

“The Academy focus is on transferring and teaching “hard” skills which will help us find jobs, yet it does so much more for those who want it and there is a great richness to it.”
Andrew Kinsella, Springboard 2012 and new appointed Manager at Snap, Blanchardstown
“One of the biggest decisions of my life was to return to learning. Even with 32 years of experience, it was a light bulb moment – the realisation that while education and experienced, there would always be a need for further improvement, to develop and acquire new skills.”
Stuart Agar, Managing Director, Retail Conceptz
