Sean has been recognised with Business All-Star Accreditation for his outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the training and professional speaking sector.
Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.
The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Reacting to the announcement, Speak for Success International MD Sean Dwan said:
Speak for Success International has been helping people globally for over 13 years, to enable them to deliver Memorable, Influential, Engaging Presentations and to Speak in Public with Conviction, Authority and Confidence. As Managing Director, I am thrilled to have received The All-Star Business Accreditation, which I know will deliver more Business Opportunities for Speak for Success International.
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Sean Dwan of Speak For Success International has achieved AIBF Business All-Star Accreditation 2022. This Accreditation is in recognition of Sean’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the training and professional speaking and presentation skills sector. The AIBF also wishes to recognise Sean Dwan’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. Speak For Success International is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.”
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”
The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national Accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.
The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for Accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
