Almost 3,700 new jobs created in businesses supported by the Local Enterprise Offices in 2016 – Ministers Mitchell O’Connor & Breen. - DJEI | Doing business in Ireland | Scoop.it

CELTAR Advisers's insight:
This is great news - but there are doubts that the information has been ratified? Grants have been given to support these jobs. Meanwhile job creation resulting from mentoring advice is not measured by the LEOs.

CEO’s and MD’s, in a small company who reviews their performance ?

CEO’s and MD’s, in a small company who reviews their performance ? | Doing business in Ireland | Scoop.it
It is a common challenge for MDs and CEOs of small companies to figure out whether they should have a performance review themselves? All their staff go through the review process, why not them?

In many companies, with or without formal board structures, the MD / CEO there is not a Review of his or her performance. They may ask themselves “who can do my Review as I am the owner, would they be objective, and even "will my sense of self-worth be challenged" – and what happens if I get a poor review?”
CELTAR Advisers's insight:
A huge issue for business owners, performance reviews for all except them?

Can #entrepreneurship be taught, like business studies, or is it learnt by experience? @Irish_TechNews https://t.co/dp4AeMMlJy
CELTAR Advisers's insight:
General view from a business perspective is that entrepreneurship canNOT be taught, may be studied of course. Academics should be clear about what they state.

Irish businesses paying 80pc more for loans than euro zone average - National Competitiveness Council's damning report - Independent.ie | Doing business in Ireland | Scoop.it
IRISH businesses are paying 80pc more for loans than the euro zone average, a damning report from the National Competitiveness Council has warned.
CELTAR Advisers's insight:
Cost of Doing Business is the Big Issue for Irish SMEs

Never mind grants and ecosytems, or the nonsense of #backing brave, address the real issues for indigenous firms of doing business  in Ireland .

The latest report from the National Competitiveness Council highlights that Ireland is uncompetitive for bank lending to SMEs, cost of legal services and cost of insurance (and the latter 2 are connected).

How Too Much Networking Almost Killed My Startup

"I could be at home, actually working on my startup. But instead I'm here, at a startup happy hour . . . talking about startups."
CELTAR Advisers's insight:
Yep, have noticed much networking for the sake of networking. It is only a small part of business development. Bodies like banks utilise events as cheap marketing, chambers of commerce have been running networking events for years.

Exit interviews in a small business, what you need to do? | Doing business in Ireland | Scoop.it
What emotions face the owner of a small business when a key member of staff tells them they are leaving?

Mixed emotions!

Many business owners, MDs and directors of companies have said to me “If only we could have done something to prevent that decision”? In a smaller business the chances are that little preparation or succession planning has taken place.
