South East Business Confidence Survey

In 2008, as a business based in the South East, Market Dynamics decided it was time to start tracking the pulse of the region we serve. With this in mind we established our own, self-funded, research programme looking at business confidence in the South East of Ireland. Updated every 6 months and surveying senior business leaders in Carlow, Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford the research explores changes in revenue, profitability and staffing levels as well as addressing local hot topics such as the benefits of University status to the region and broadband requirements.

To date more than 400 organisations have taken part in each iteration of the research and we would like to thank them for their support. Thank you also to the network organisations in the region and the Chambers of Commerce for forwarding on the survey link to their members.
