In these challenging times finding the ideal job, progressing in your current career, or ensuring that your employees have the skills they need to flourish is more important than ever before. Talent Fusion training and career transition consultancy, based in Deerpark Business Centre, Oranmore, was established in 2002 with the aim of helping individuals and companies achieve excellence through innovative customised career development and training solutions.
Director of Talent Fusion, Ger Colleran, and Cindy Nadesan and their team of highly trained specialists focus on encouraging personal development in order to nurture people’s talents and skills. They are also committed to delivering long-term personal and high quality services that deliver results and provide value for money.
Talent Fusion provides job/career change consultations and workshops, which are tailored for people from all walks of life. The objective is to assist individuals in planning, managing, and developing in their job/career. Consultations examine individual’s specific job employment needs, career planning challenges, self-appraisal, transferable skills, expertise, and interests. Following service interventions include presenting yourself on paper (cover letters, CVs, competency-based application form ), interview skills and techniques, organising a job/career hunt campaign, enhancing existing employment, identifying a preferred and realistic career, psychometric testing, profiling and assessment, setting up a small business, further education needs, and training and development needs.
Services for individuals also cover an innovative programme entitled Design Your Destiny. This programme involves a detailed self-assessment and self-evaluation of your vision, mission, and purpose in life. Neuro linguistic programming is used to help carve out a path so that you can achieve your goals. NLP works to change habits, destroy limiting decisions and behaviours, eliminate negative emotions, raise self-confidence, and provide empowerment.
The Identification of Your Ideal Job/Career programme helps clients explore their talents, skills, and achievements and identify their ideal, realistic, career choice. If you have an idea for a business but don’t know how to make it a reality, then the Own Business Development Planning programme can help put your aspirations and ideas on paper and impress potential investors and banking institutions.
Talent Fusion specialists also provide in-company services, which have proven to be very effective in helping businesses and their employees be the best that they can be. Talent Fusion specialists, who have combined 25 years of experience in this field, provide training support, training needs analysis, training planning, and development of training systems. Businesses can also get help and advice on designing comprehensive training kits, interactive e-learning programmes, designing presentations, and designing training management record systems. Service interventions include training programme titles, emerging leaders’ programme, project management, change management, coaching, and management development. They also work with local Skillnet organisations in delivering funded training initiatives.
