In my final year of an Arts Degree in Galway (Ireland), it became clear that whatever I was to do next had to be creative. I had always been interested in business, but also very keen on good design. So I decided to try both. I prepared my portfolio, and was accepted onto a Graphic Design programme in the College of Marketing and Design. But a fateful admin error a few weeks before the course started changed my direction to Marketing. I went from that post-grad diploma in marketing to the world of work, starting in Customer Service, then Sales, and on to New Business Development… and further studies by night for a Graduateship in Marketing degree…for good measure. Design is always there in the background though – and I like to think that creativity is a key hallmark of the work I do for my clients today.
Key to who I am – a professional who believes in hard work and a touch of humour, an organiser who’s honest, and a loyal ally to manage your marketing challenges – so that you can have confidence that I will be fully on your side as the work is completed efficiently and to plan.
I believe that you get out what you put in; am passionate about small businesses getting the right chance to survive and grow; and I live to help others achieve their dreams… because I have dreams too.
And as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, I’m into good marketing done well – which means adding value and achieving a measurable return on investment.
Probably the biggest thing that I like to do in life is make people happy… and so it’ll be no surprise to know that my business is all about people – my clients.
My clients are real people, with real lives, and real, established businesses. But they want it to grow. So they are willing to trust, embrace a new direction, and are ready to reap the rewards. They want to channel all their thoughts and ideas through an organised plan so they know what needs to be done next.
They want to be given some fresh ideas but they are also prepared to think outside the box of everyday… and they aren’t afraid of the word strategy.
My clients also have a life. They want balance, time for hobbies, family and down-time. They are passionate about what they do, have a strong sense of right and wrong, and are prepared to stick their neck out to help make a difference to other lives, community or environment.
