IT’S NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE PERSON BUT MORE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP.
A BELIEF THAT GOOD WORK COMES FROM COLLABORATION, TRUST AND VISION.

IT’S NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE PERSON BUT MORE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP. A BELIEF THAT GOOD WORK COMES FROM COLLABORATION, TRUST AND VISION.

OVERVIEW

With over three decades in the media communications sector, I offer a unique creative mentoring service to my clients.

Drawing on my business and visionary skills, most recently I’ve worked with clients as diverse as:

•  Mark and Chappell (building their international brand in the petcare arena
•  Shelia Morley (creating her millinery storyline, brand and imagery
•  Royal Dublin Society (promoting the membership drive)

In essence, I’m the bridge builder between client and producer, curating projects from conception to completion. Marrying business acumen with creativity, I deliver on message and meet objectives from conception to completion. Having run and sold a successful design agency, lectured on a number of MBA courses and hosted innovation workshops, my calm and knowing style, coupled with real world experience has brought numerous commissions and projects to successful completion. When you have need for real creative and visionary input to your project at embryonic stage, or need a safe pair of hands to guide it through its production, my unique skills and insight, can be an important asset.
