Executive Training

IDI has been delivering its Flagship series of scheduled courses in Foreign Direct Investment, Export Promotion and Banking annually for the last 20 years.

These IDI courses have become globally recognised and each year organisations from around the globe send their up-and-coming leaders to spend a week or two immersed with peers and practitioners. The courses are delivered in Dublin and the group stays together in a hotel at the heart of Dublin to maximise the learning opportunities throughout the program.  The courses on Finance and Banking end with a 3 day stay in London.

Our speakers are all practitioners with real-world experience of overcoming the challenges that face organisations which are growing rapidly or facing a transformation.

The dates of up-coming courses are below.  If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our Head of Training Gerry O'Brien.

What Attendees Said About Our Training Programmes

Throughout my extended career I have not enjoyed and benefitted from a workshop and training program like this one that IDI prides itself in presenting for the benef of IPAS and other organizations/institutions that operate in FDI/SME/export and linkages fields. I truly and deeply thank you Bernadette for a well planned training and hospitality. My thanks are also extended to Eamon for his excellent coverage of FDI topics and life experiences and insight he so openly shared with us in a genuine manner, as well as to both Frank for guiding us in the site visit which was eye opening, and to Greg for his effort in covering SMEs crucial subject.

Finally, I would like to salute my colleagues the other participants who have come from varied backgrounds and geographic coverage and who have distinguished themselves in sharing passion for learning to benefit their beloved countries and eventually advance their careers. It is a real pleasure to know each and every one and hope we stay connected to exchange knowledge and provide assistance when and if needed. I conclude reiterating  my best personal regards and appreciation to you all.
