Universal Projects Director, Nigel Tomlinson delivered a keynote speech to delegates attending the European Economic Summit in Luxembourg on 15th October.
Nigel addressed the audience drawn from all member states of the European Union including representatives of Governments, Chambers of Commerce and business on the subject of “The Need for Advanced Management Training for a Successful European Economy and Business”. In addition he also took part in a Question & Answer session and then conducted a workshop on “Identifying Required Training & Skills” in conjunction with Ian Talbot, the Director General of Chambers Ireland.
Nigel Tomlinson added: “It was a great honour to be invited to address the Summit and to lead the subsequent workshop. The need for Advanced Management Skills has never been greater with businesses having to compete in an ever increasingly global and highly competitive marketplace. It is vital that business and Chamber of Commerce Executives acquire such skills and embark on continuous professional development programmes if they are to innovate and develop high performance organisations to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.”
UP has already commenced development work with a number of European Chambers to design and deliver in-house training programmes and is currently exploring the potential of creating a European Chambers Training Academy in association with Eurochambres, the European Chambers of Commerce agency based in Brussels.
