Gráinne is a busy working mum, and knows that while there are only 24 hours in a day, multi-taskers can always find the time to get things done. As a former journalist, she has a good nose for news and loves to work with clients to find that bright idea that makes a good campaign become great. Managing busy FMCG accounts and keeping it fun can be a big ask and is only possible when you work with great people - and we do.
It's been said that Nicky is never far from food... and her client list is testament to this with Cadbury, Green & Blacks, The Natural Confectionary Company, and Trebor all in the portfolio. But when not thinking about food she loves to travel, speak French and dabble in the study of Criminology. Nicky has a keen interest in retail (what woman doesn't?) and her phone is always in close range.
Niamh has an innate ability to spot new trends before most (due in part to her addiction to retail therapy) and brings this talent to bear on all of her clients from Kellogg's to Woodie's DIY. A native of Dublin, Niamh enjoys frequent trips to her 'home away from home', Cork, where fine wines and excellent food are the order of the day. Niamh's two main loves are her classic mini cooper and her Labrador Polly.
Darragh counts himself very lucky to have worked with some of the most creative people in Ireland through his work in Film and Arts PR, and thrives in applying this knowledge to create exciting and impactful consumer targeted campaigns for clients such as Cadbury, Londis, 3, Love Irish Food and more. Darragh has embraced the constantly evolving world of online communications and loves nothing more than testing out whatever new tools he finds through twitter.
Whether its up-and-coming labels or precious vintage finds, Avril's appreciation for fashion is innate. She strives to bring this element of pizazz to her work and won't rest until she's found that touch of panache that differentiates your brand from your competitors. Avril has devised and implemented award winning campaigns for FMCG clients across all sectors as well as managing creative communications campaigns for some of Ireland's favourite media outlets.
Amanda has worked on a range of consumer accounts from the brand team for the City of Melbourne to experiential activity for Heineken and O2. Amanda loves to travel and see new places, her travels have taken her to America, Africa, Australia and around Europe. She loves finding out new communication tools online and drawing inspiration for client projects. Occasionally described as borderline OCD, Amanda prefers to say she has an eye for detail which she brings to her work on 3 and Cadbury.
Brona has been described as an avid foodie by friends, so working with one of Ireland's most loved food brands, Kellogg's has proved a perfect fit. Her love of travel and sunshine has brought her to some far flung places but her favourite spot is Tullum in Mexico. Having worked in retail with luxury brand Karen Millen, Brona loves sharing style advice with friends and family. With a heightened sense of commercial awareness and a Masters in Marketing under her belt Brona brings enthusiasm and creativity to all tasks at hand.
Niamh loves fashion, music, food and travel and likes to think herself a connoisseur of popular culture. With a background in fashion, art, beauty and food PR, she is constantly on the lookout for quirky ideas, clever campaigns and the 'next big thing'. This eye for detail transcribes into her work, implementing creative campaigns for clients such as Kellogg's, Allergan and Woodies DIY.
Grace loves to travel and experience new places, in the past her trips have brought her from New Zealand to San Francisco. Grace's big love is her horse Bob, she enjoys nothing more than going home to Meath for trips to the beach and cross country competitions. Grace's love of food results in eating out in Dublin's restaurants far too often, however it fits in nicely with her work on Cadbury, Londis and Love Irish Food.
Having co-founded his own successful digital marketing business with Niall in 2007, Andrew has gone on to co-found and co-present DigitalMarketingSchool.ie (again with Niall), start up a formula vee racing team, and be a proud father to Zoe and Daniel (this time, not with Niall). Andrew, who was nominated 'Internet Marketer of the Year' in 2008, has managed digital marketing and technology projects for major blue chip clients in Ireland and internationally.
As well as continuing to contribute to a variety of industry publications, Niall is also the co-founder and presenter of DigitalMarketingSchool.ie. He has won several industry awards including an Irish Internet Association Net Visionary Award in 2008. Previously Niall has produced online video content featuring interviews with Tricky, U2, George Clinton and Beyoncé, with whom he believes, if they'd got the chance to spend a bit more time together, Jay-Z wouldn't have had a chance.
