17 employees of Ardmac, the leading international construction specialist based in Swords, North Dublin, have completed a bespoke leadership course, the Building Better Leaders Programme (BBLP), in partnership with Trinity Business School, Dublin. The course was designed to develop leaders in business and people management, to grow strategic leadership capabilities for those working in the construction sector.
The team selected from across the Ardmac business took part in the first programme, and completed core leadership modules such as Business Excellence, Strategy, Financial Reporting, People Development and Personal Effectiveness, led by members of Trinity Business School faculty.
Entry to the BBLP programme was through a structured application and selection process. During the programme candidates had to work as part of a team on a key business project. The completed projects were presented to the Ardmac Directors and members of the Trinity Business School on the final day of the programme. On completion of the course, participants received an Executive Development Certificate from Trinity College Dublin and were inducted into the Trinity Business School alumni network.
Ronan Quinn, Chief Executive of Ardmac, commented on the BBLP programme; “We are very proud to invest in the development of our people through the completion of this intensive leadership programme. We were also delighted to partner with Trinity Business School to allow our colleagues access to its best in class leadership curriculum. We are confident that they will apply the skills and knowledge from the BBLP course to their roles in Ardmac and make a positive impact on our organisational culture and the business overall. Ardmac is committed to providing extensive training to our employees, including graduate development programmes, management training and executive leadership courses.”
