He currently handles blue-chip clients including LinkedIn, Visa Europe and Irish Distillers in his native Ireland. His talents extend to running a successful PR jobs blog and being a board member of youth wellness comms site SpunOut.
The best thing about my job is… having a range of blue-chip organisations as clients and getting to work with an agency at the crest of the evolving communications landscape.
I couldn’t live without… it’s a bit of a cliché but I’d have to say my smartphone, and the extra battery pack I have to carry around with it. I always need to be available to clients and media no matter when or where.
My biggest inspiration is… PR is an industry that’s incredibly collegiate and encouraging. I’ve been very lucky to have a number of inspiring mentors on both client and agency-side so far in my career.
In five years’ time I want to be... still working agency-side with great clients.
