Presentation of certificates to Tourism Businesses on completion of Fáilte Ireland Strategic Leadership Programme in association with Cornell University
During the Pandemic, Fáilte Ireland invited over 70 key industry leaders from across the country, to participate in a purpose-built Strategic Leadership, Resilience, and Innovation in a Time of Crisis programme, in partnership with Cornell University, USA as the industry faced unprecedented challenges.
The Programme was a crucial and important step for those tourism businesses to ensure they have relevant strategies for short-term survival, while also creating a platform for recovery and long term growth post Covid.
Martina Kerr-Bromley, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Enterprise Development commented: “We were pleased that so many of the tourism businesses took time out of their busy schedule to receive their certificates at a ceremony in the Guinness Storehouse, with many saying that the programme was exactly the right programme at the right time! The programme’s focus was about sustaining businesses and jobs through strategy development, innovation, and execution of three stages The Pause/Survival phase, the Recovery phase, and the Growth phase. We believe that the skills, learnings and peer support this programme delivered left these businesses in a much stronger position as they focus on driving long-term recovery.”
