I first met Mark Shaw on Periscope. There he's been incredibly helpful to loads of people who discovered that new live streaming App.  I love the fluent way he speaks about social media here. His input is full of easily remembered tips & overall approach.

I've been connecting with Claire ever since I started using Periscope. I love how frequently Claire scopes because that's allowed me to build up a picture of what she's like - especially how consistent she is.
The fact that she scopes from Paris is a bonus because her scopes remind me of the city which I used to know fairly well. But is Claire was in Vienna I'd still find her irresistible.

Seamus - it was great of you to sing this when I met you recently in Cork & live streamed your performance via Periscope.  Love your You Tube

I find it delightful to move from meeting Anne online - via Periscope - and being ever so attracted to her wit & energy...
Then discovering this thanks to a tweet from Anne.
And yet we've never "met" in the old meaning of that word.
The map I use to navigate the landscape of my heart has been recast. 
Maybe the map will settle down sometime. Maybe we'll go back to a sense of stability. Right now I feel on shifting sands - in transition from the solid known to the permeable unknown - and it feels good.

This is a measured, temperate, generous, human, kind expression of Aidan Gillen's view. I love it.

I help people tell stories for their business - Podcaster - Poet - Servant of others - Foodie - naturally ambitious + love to share my contacts
Introduction

I help people tell their business story well. This is my skill & my passion.

I'm strongly committed to more meaningful marketing because I'm fed up with rubbish, mediocre marketing.  

I value branding that both works and attracts people & gets them to care about you & your business. Also, I hate wasted money & want to ensure every investment delivers more than was anticipated.  

I'm a trained sociologist & taught theory & research methods at Institute of Public Administration in Dublin.  After moving to London, at London Transport (Buses), I went from bus conductor to senior management - headed up customer service training for 19,000 people plus management development - two levers of a complex organisational change & cultural transformation.  

At The National Trust, I led performance management training for all managers & directors during a period of major change.

In 1998, I set up my own business consultancy OMani & Co. I specialised in improving the reputation & impact of individuals & teams within corporates & not-for-profits.  My clients included The National Trust, Lucent Technologies, First Group, National Health Service (NHS)  & Euro RSCG.

returned to Ireland in 2005 (after 30 years) because I was ready for change & I wanted to be near my extended family.

I set up a micro business in Cork, Marketing Write Now, to provide copywriting & marketing services.  But that quickly turned into a Reputation Building service. I turned into a storyteller for business, keen to help companies & individuals get their story straight.

All my life I've wanted to be surrounded by great designers - to present big attractive ideas & ideals in the best possible style. Co-Founding ChangeAgents Branding gave me a splendid opportunity to do my best work for ideal clients.

Personal stuff:
I'm first born child of a Limerick bookshop owner & a remarkable mother. (She's 87 now).  I think of my winding life journey as a challenge to become "me" - my own person, not copying anyone else - consciously & unconsciously. A lifetime & continuing effort to be the unique person I am. You could say I've been building "Brand Me". Politically I've been "revolutionary" - passionate about the reputation of Ireland, the international world, the working class & minority groups, anti-imperialist, anti-racist & anti-sexist. I still have strong convictions. I've been a poet since 1995.  I have an epic poem for sale in the Kindle Store. I wish I was a better golfer. If I had one food to take to a desert island, it would be Irish fillet steak (cooked blue). My musical taste is catholic - particularly opera - and especially live. I live in - and love - Glanmire, an eastern suburb of Cork city.
