Beckinridge was established in 1993 in response to a growing need for high quality training in Ireland, primally focusing on a then emerging IT industry. Over time the company has extended its coverage and now provides training to SME and Corporate clients in a broad range of sectors.
Eddie McDonald (a co-founder and current Managing Director) can recall the early days in a one room office in their accountant’s building, travelling with a car full of computers (heavy machines then!) to various venues around Ireland. Then setting up permanent training centres in Dublin and Belfast (with a satellite in Cork) and getting through various ups and downs in the economy to maintain its presence as a leading provider of training in Ireland.
From Cork to Galway, Letterkenny to Dublin, Waterford to Tullamore, Belfast to Derry, Cookstown to Newry and just about everywhen in between – Beckinridge has trained. Not to mention Parma, Hong Kong, Vancouver, Edinburgh, Manchester, Boston and a few other not so close to home locations.
Today Beckinridge maintains its focus on high quality training, delivering courses throughout Ireland, the UK and abroad. Courses in Leadership & Management, Professional Sales and Customer Service, Personal Effectiveness, Business Skills, Emotional Intelligence, Mental Toughness and Project Management form the company’s portfolio. These courses are delivered both in a traditional Classroom-Based environment and via Virtual Delivery.
