About Me

Starting out I planned to be a chef but decided a Management degree from Trinity may be a wiser move! After qualifying with my degree I went to work in hotels for a while where I held Sales and Marketing roles. In 2001 I decided to put my skills to use in the non profit arena. I have worked for Foroige, the ISPCC, The National Children’s Hospital and Childrens Miracle Network UK and Ireland before moving to Brando in September 2010.  I have just completed a degree in Psychology but still believe I have it in me to become a Michelin star chef!

On this blog I will post about advertising, marketing, digital and otherwise and you will also see me talking about philanthropy. Possibly other randomness too!

It goes without saying that these views are mine and mine alone (that will probably become very clear) and certainly not those of my employer.

Thanks for coming by and for reading. If you have any thoughts on other content for this blog I would love to hear from you

  1. Conor,

    If you find yourself at the check-out and your reusable bags in the car, simply pack your shopping back in the trolley, take it out to the car and then pack it into the bags.

  2. What you gonna do with your degree Conor? Fancy joining an ABA school?

  3. Not sure how long you’ve been running this blog Conor, but I’ve only just found it 🙂 I am delighted that I did. I work for a breast cancer advocacy group in Ireland and it is going to be very helpful to keep up to date with what’s happening in the vountary sector through your posts. Looking forward to following from now on.

    • Marie…thanks for the comment and delighted you found the blog! Let me know if there are things you would like to see covered.


  4. Hi Conor
    We need more people like you. Would you come talk to my students sometime? I teach at an American University based here in Dublin and I teach Social and Not For Profit marketing. I’d love to hook up to chat and talk about any opportunities there may be for my students to help any orgaisations that may need ‘helpers”. also Id love to talk to you more about IfWeRanTheWorld.
    warm regards

  5. I’ve been reading through your blog the last few days and it looks like I’ve become a regular visitor. I run my own fundraising company, so it’s interesting to see what other professionals in the industry have on their minds. Great blog! I look forward to more.

  6. Hey Conor. Just found your blog, very interesting. I run a small NGO but also work for the UN so I see both sides of the coin. I’ll definitely be keeping up to date with your writing!

  7. Hi Connor. I have not long enetered the not for profit sector after working in a large fast paced organisation. It is nice to be able to read your thoughts etc on fundraising etc, it is real food for thought. Thank you
