I like building business and brands. I'm a marketer and insight strategist with deep experience in strategic marketing, digital research and International consultancy sales. I've worked for corporates and start-ups and consulted to both.
Companies hire me if they need help on branding and marketing skills with deep International B2B sales experience. I usually work on a project or consultancy basis. As former Qualvu European Sales Director, reporting to the CEO, I have hands-on experience of managing a team, delivering revenue growth from zero and delivering multi-stakeholder, complex sales with enterprise and agency channels. At Qualvu - I set up and led the growth in Europe, selling to enterprise clients such as P&G, Nestle and Unilever as well as the agency channel.
Those who work with me describe me as a 'strategist who can sell', a 'collaborator who gets things done' and a 'business catalyst'. Whatever the label - I like to work with the internal team to shape strategy that builds business.
I've had a number of different roles in growing brands and building business: MD, sales director, insight consultancy founder, brand marketer, advertising agency board director. In the process of doing this, I've facilitated many types of teams - corporate, agency, SMBs and start-ups.
Previous speaking includes 'Caps and Closures' Amsterdam 2014, 'Mobile Research, Mobile World' (MRMW) Amsterdam, 2012 and 'The Insight Show', London, 2012.
I’m an Enterprise Ireland Mentor who wants to help build Irish business around the World.
I live in Dublin, near the sea and sometimes lament the weather but never the vibe. I like to run or walk by the coast.
