    of reliable high speed connections would put Ireland on a par with its worldwide neighbours attracting investment far easier than before Of course connectivity is only one piece of the puzzle and a good broadband network is useless if the right staff are not there to use it effectively Irish company Havok which produces software for the games and movie industries has done its best over the years to hire indigenous workers and currently bases half of its project operations in this country Its CEO David O Meara says the country s education system is good but not great and more must be done if it is to rise above average in the coming years We are doing an awful lot of work here we have three development teams based in Dublin which is substantial and I would like to do more in Dublin if I found enough of the right people he says It s not a case of the Irish education system being a complete failure but the quality is about average by European standards According to Mr O Meara the need to move up the food chain is vital given the push by other countries to develop a knowledge economy too As the standard as a whole rises what is classed as average now will become poor very quickly The USA and other countries are talking about better skilled workers too so the competition is getting tougher there won t be as little competition again as there is now While it may not be the easiest answer Mr O Meara believes the focus should be on institutional reform from primary level all the way to the universities At the moment there s more money in researching than in lecturing I think focus needs to be put back on the quality of the teaching as we need to ensure the students coming through are getting thought by the best he says At primary and secondary level teachers need to be held accountable like they would be in any business we need to be sure they re engaging the students in the right way Simple acts like this would make the quality of the system far better I wouldn t see the point of spending more money on improving education until these reforms were done At the very least this kind of improvement does not need huge investment the same cannot be said for the country s infrastructure The Government need to put more money forward and engage better with the industry so we can connect the various networks together says Mr O Kelly It s going to be hard and it s going to take time and money to do it but we must The onus is not entirely on the Government however Mr O Meara suggests that even the best idea and the right investment can all go wrong if businesses do not develop the right practices and attitude It doesn t matter how good the people
