My background is in the world of Sales and Marketing where I have over 25 years’ experience working for large multinational companies including Philips, Vodafone & Photo-Me International.  I have had the privilege of being the Account Manager for large Irish organisations such as DAA, An Post, Dunnes Stores, Irish Rail, as well as numerous leading Irish Shopping Centres. I also have successful sales experience in the Retail, Pharmacy, Dental, Entertainment, Manufacturing, Utilities & Communications sectors.

I hold two major qualifications, one  in Business specialising in Social Media Marketing and the other in Design Communications.

How does this relate to Digital Marketing?

This in depth knowledge and experience gives me a unique insight into customers!  Customers are at the center of marketing.  The business that knows, understands and engages best with its customers will always be the most successful.

I can put all of this  to work for you! so you can harness the power of The Internet.  I can take Social Media off your “To Do List” I can create a Digital Media Marketing Strategy for your business that  will add value and gives you an online presence which is more engaging for your customers!  The best thing about all of this, is that it wont cost you a fortune!
