Deirdre’s ability to conceive of, fundraise, plan for and deliver a conference is especially good. Her development of the Cantillon Forum in Kerry in 2010 and 2013 proved highly successful. She has also ran training days for the craft sector for us and her mentoring services have been utilised by this organisation especially with regard to her knowledge of the new product development cycle. We look forward to working with her again in the future on project management, training and mentoring initiatives.
Eamonn O’Reilly, CEO, North, East & West Kerry Development.
Through her conception of the Original Kerry brand, Deirdre has motivated a group of craft makers into a professional network who are more business focussed than ever before. I highly recommend her approach to developing businesses in the creative sector. Her communication and delivery skills are excellent. She is especially good on issues of arts management and on the needs of the artistic community.
