At Business IQ we empower every individual to reach their highest potential. We provide you with the resources and motivation needed to take charge of your business. You will develop a new confidence and self-belief that will enable you to make the right decisions to grow your business.

Empowerment begins with Engagement

Business training: Starting Your Business and Growing Your Business

Business IQ have a deep knowledge and understanding of the needs and requirements of individuals setting up and growing their business, from basic nuts and bolts of tax and managing money to marketing strategies and communication skills and much more. Our business training focus is on the startup and growing businesses operating in Ireland.

Our unique approach in the marketplace is that we support participants in multiple ways, the creation of engaging relevant content delivered in a group setting with strong emphasis on visual imagery, interactive discussions, practical examples and supported with a suite of templates and videos using the simple ‘How To’ method. Our Start Your Own Business manuals are akin to Business Bible for beginners and our Development manual is for the more established business owners. Participants are brought on their business training journey in a step by step logical manner.

We are proud of our strong reputation based on our carefully selected team, courses, methods, resources, and authenticity. At Business IQ, we are dedicated to maximizing our participants’ potential.
