    Management Development Programme

    Following the success of the Management Development Programme for Visitor Attractions in 2016, the programme is now being offered to tourism activity providers in Dublin.

    Activity providers are a vital component of the tourism experience in Dublin because they allow our visitors to truly immerse themselves in the surroundings and living culture of the capital as they interact with people and uncover stories and unexpected surprises along the way. 

    What is the Management Development Programme?

    The Management Development Programme helps participants gain new insights to strategically develop their business and take practical steps to further improve the experience for the visitor. 

    The programme includes a series of workshops, on-site mentoring and a European Benchmarking Best Practice Site Visit. Participants will have access to industry practitioners, university lecturers from Trinity College and Ulster University and consultants in the areas of business planning, leadership, marketing and international sales.
