Imperial Eureka Moment

By the mood the musicTEN YEARS FROM now, a graduate of Tipperary Institute will recall some conversations that unfolded along the South Mall in Cork, Ireland. The conversations, sparked by a eureka moment inside the Imperial Hotel, happened unscripted and unexpectedly, as happens in some of the most inspirational events. We snapped some images in a Flickr photostream from Cork today that capture the time around the moment. And we pass around good karma to Rick Segal for sharing his time and ideas.

Flight of jobs from Ireland

DUBLIN -- While reading Adventures in Code by John Sterne, I encountered a paragraph that I never expected to read when first settling down in Ireland in the mid-90s.

It is ironic that, at a time when the biggest talking point in the American software industry is the outsourcing of jobs to economies like India and China, Irish exporters say that they are saving money by creating additional employment at their offices in the US.

Entrepreneurship in the classroom

GLOBE AND MAIL -- Entrepreneurship education is proliferating at the postsecondary level. One group of students wants to pursue their passions or is looking for career alternatives as big companies downsize. But others are already successful entrepreneurs, looking for guidance or an edge. In response, colleges and universities are tweaking their executive-education programmes to target entrepreneurs that already run their own businesses. "It's definitely a growing phenomenon," says Eric Morse, executive director of the University of Western Ontario's Institute for Entrepreneurship. UWO's new "Quantum Shift" program, which was offered for the first time this year, targets existing entrepreneurs who want to take their businesses to the next level. Many students rave about the programme. Cameron Heaps, the 29-year-old CEO of an $8 million microbrewery, says the week-long programme taught him how to develop and finance a long-term expansion plan. Instead of making those decisions on the fly, he said, "It changed how I strategize."

Moving up the jobs ladder

IRISH TIMES -- The government received its final Enterprise Strategy Report and it's interesting to note comments from the opposition. Reaction from TD Brendan Howlin was illuminating: "It is a striking fact that many of the new jobs which Ireland must seek to create will be filled by people who are already at work," which highlights the need for continuous training.

Tipperary Institute moves up the degree chain

IRISH TIMES -- The Irish Minister of State for Education has announced that Irish "higher education diplomas will no longer be awarded from this September and will be replaced by ordinary level degrees." This move is part of radical new plans designed to enhance uniformity for naming and valuing awards. Authorities hope the changes wil make it easier for students, employers and third-level institutions to judge the value of courses and awards. Don't expect these change to result in higher starting salaries. The sleight-of-hand naming directly addresses the oft-documented shortfall of IT graduates.
