I have spent more than 20 years in a variety of management roles, in banking, hospitality and latterly the public sector.
My current focus stems from a lifelong interest in the environment and the desire to utilise my skills in businesses where sustainability, for the company itself, or the businesses it works for, is a key objective.
The wide range of experience I have gained includes comes from a diverse range of roles and projects such as:
- Researching and writing a comprehensive report on fish-box EPS for Repak;
- Managing several aspects of the successful delivery of the International Water Association Water, Climate & Energy World Congress in Dublin;
- Undertaking and delivering on a range of measures to reduce spend on energy and waste management by the Taxi Regulator;
- Successfully co-ordinating the relocation of a Bank of Scotland (Ireland) Division (150 staff) to new offices;
- Managing a range of loan books in arrears, including mortgages and asset finance, for Bank of Scotland (Ireland);
- Planning and managing numerous large conferences, seminars and events in Dublin and London.
I believe that continuous professional development is vitally important in honing my skills and ensuring that I keep up-to-date with developments in technology and legislation; relevant qualifications and training include:
- Post-Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Energy Finance (Dublin City University) 2013
- Introduction to Sustainable Development (ECO-Unesco) 2011
- Introduction to Energy Management (Public Affairs Ireland) 2010
- Certificate in Project Management (Institute of Public Administration) 2008
