An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny opened the Irish Management Institute National Management Conference 2016 in Sandyford and addressed over 250 executives in attendance.

The theme of the 2016 conference was one of ‘Managing Disruption – Seizing Opportunity’.

Speaking from the conference, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said :

"In the first six months of 2016, 115 new investments were secured, creating 9,100 new jobs in the coming years. Just as important as new jobs and investments is our reputation for policy stability, a business friendly environment and a highly skilled workforce. Indeed, skills are top of the agenda for business, and we must ensure that Ireland continues to excel in this area."

He added, "Key Government Departments and Agencies have also worked with the IMI to develop and implement programmes for future leaders with great success. I congratulate the IMI on these accomplishments and wish them every success in their continued development."

He aslo said  further steps will be taken to encourage more start-ups and micro businesses to locate to Ireland and to make the country more attractive to entrepreneurs and the self-employed.
