Are you looking to improve your business skill set? The Local Enterprise Office Kilkenny has developed a range of courses and workshops aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of small business owner-managers, so their business has an increased opportunity for success.

Considering self-employment as a career option, the Business Idea generation workshops and Start Your Own Business Programme are aimed at assisting you to assess your idea, its viability and to decide if you should proceed or take a step back. The Start Your Own Business Programme focuses on those with a business idea; likely to be full-time employment, unemployment, recently made redundant and women returning to the workforce and unsure as to how to develop the idea into a business plan. 

The use of digital marketing is increasingly important for small businesses, allowing them to extend their reach while offering reduced marketing costs compared to traditional marketing channels. We provide a range of courses and workshops focused on digital marketing and social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SEO etc.

For some entrepreneurs, the financial planning aspect for the business can be daunting. The Local Enterprise Office Kilkenny provides training in relation to basic book-keeping and taxation together with Sage computerised training programmes that will assist small business owner mangers and their employees to interpret and understand the financial aspects of the business in terms of maintaining proper records, meet their legal obligations, etc.

‘The Local Enterprise Office Kilkenny aims to ensure continued growth and development of start-up and micro-enterprises throughout the County’ commented Fiona Deegan, Head of Enterprise. She further added ‘In order to achieve this, they provide a range of business support packages along with the training programmes including business information and advice, mentoring and selective financial assistance'.
