“As the Human Resources Manager at Ballyfin Demesne.  I am delighted that we have the opportunity to link with LOETB.  Being tasked with the talent management and development; it has been great to have their support listening to our training needs, researching and sourcing relevant and professional trainers for us and assisting with funding. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them” Laura Gowing Ballyfin Demesne.

“We recently had three of our Team Leaders attend Frontline Leadership Training organised by the Laois Offaly ETB, and it proved to be a very worthwhile experience for all involved. There were four other local companies involved also and, in addition to the high level of tuition provided, it was a great opportunity for the guys to bounce ideas off of each other and get a feel for the challenges that others around us are facing. They came back from the training re-energised and full of really positive ideas for the business".

"This was our first time to partner with the LOETB on such training, but we are already well advanced on planning our next venture together.” Gary Kelly Grant Engineering
