Entrepreneurship Forum Report 2014 Ireland - what's missing?

If you want quality business  advice, don't go to amateurs

 

Bizarre for me that there is no mention  - or recognition - of the role of professional business advisers in this report.

The  expert business mentors in the County Enterprise Boards are not mentioned, the professional business mentors and consultants in the private sector are not acknowledged.

Where is the Institute of Management Consultants and Advisers  www.imca.ie in the report? A professional institute with several hundred members, half of whom work with SMEs.

A key element of improving competitiveness should be acknowledging business advisers who work daily with Startups & SMEs. 

Instead of setting up a plethora of state funded schemes that compete wth private sector business consultants, Richard Bruton should ask his department to ally itself with quality business advisers and to lessen it's intervention in a well catered for sector.

'Great advice can make the difference between a business surviving or failing'

'Great advice can make the difference between a business surviving or failing' | Doing business in Ireland | Scoop.it

It's time the State got involved in business mentoring to help new firms stay afloat, says Aine Collins TD in the Irish Mirror

 

[see my comments below]

 

That kind of mentoring from experienced business people is invaluable and I believe it’s crucial to the survival and success of small and medium firms. But it’s not just me – the benefits of mentoring for the business community are recognised worldwide.

Expert advice and guidance can make all the difference. If business people know where the pitfalls are and are equipped to avoid them, they have a much better chance of staying and succeeding in business.

Mentoring services are provided throughout the county by Enterprise Ireland, City and County Enterprise Boards and Teagasc.

But the type of mentoring on offer can vary widely.

It’s time we considered taking a new State approach to this to best meet the needs of businesses.

CELTAR Adviser's insight:

Aine, if you want expert business advice  and guidance there is another route for businesses - to look for a professional business adviser.

Business advisers like myself have worked with hundreds of companies, bringing fresh ideas to business owners assisting them address business challenges and opportunities.

Try the IMCA, the Irish Institute of Management Consultants and Advisers. With over 600 members they have business adviser members ready to assist any business.
