Screen Skills Ireland has announced that applications for Screen Leaders 2019 are now open for European and Irish screen companies.
Screen Leaders is the strategic company development programme for the screen industries that can transform businesses.
- Is your company going through a period of change or growth?
- Do you want to internationalise your business?
- Do you need to re-define the scope of your business?
- Is it time to frame your company vision?
If you are asking these questions about your business, then Screen Leaders is the programme for you and your company.
Designed for company leaders working in film, television, animation, games, post-production, VFX, facilities, sales, distribution and exhibition, the programme, which has been running successfully for over 10 years, is funded by the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme and Screen Skills Ireland.
The Screen Leaders programme will provide you and your company with the skills to lead and grow the organisation in a complex, innovative and evolving international marketplace, with a mixture of residential week-long workshops and one to one sessions from June to November 2019.
Screen Leaders meant a lot for our company as well as our personal development. The most important thing was that we were forced to face our weaknesses; both those we knew of and those we needed to hear. With the help from the experts in the program we understood more clearly what had to be done structurally, economically and in terms of content, to make our company more stable. Even after the sessions with Screen Leaders were over we received tutorial help. We feel more secure now than ever about what to focus on.
