Owner, OTC Business Ireland
Sharon’s credentials in the commercial sector as a communications expert are very well established and she deservedly enjoys an excellent reputation in these areas.
Founder, Non-profit sector in Ireland
Apart from the all-round commercial knowledge, wisdom and judgement Sharon brings to our deliberations I believe it is her real personal & professional generosity in sharing all these gifts that sets her apart, and makes her contribution to the non-profit sector so special.
Chair, Third Sector in Ireland
Sharon hatched an idea that has resulted in a whole new way of doing business and engaging the customer.
Owner hospitality sector in UK
I have engaged Sharon’s services over the past 10 years to help me with communications and modern media. When we first met I was a bit sceptical about how Sharon’s services could help as I felt I was well established and experienced at what I did. How wrong was I. More recently Sharon is guiding me on more effective ways to express the vision in online platforms.
Owner, Retail – UK
Working with Sharon is inspirational. Her creative mind set coupled with her gentle approach in all things communications is revolutionary. The ability she has to nurture me, and at the same time empower me, is amazing. She has a unique way of tapping into the deep desire within me to make this venture work – and it is working.
Owner, Community Sector, Ireland
Sharon is one of the most intuitive communicators I have ever worked with and this is coupled to a theoretical knowledge of all matters communications which is of the highest order. Her ability to get to the core of the challenge or opportunity is incisive and she then proceeds to analyse this from all possible angles. The result is always a holistic communications solution which covers every base. And what’s more – she is passionate about what she does. And she delivers. A communications mentor with serious ability.
CEO UK Agency Services
If you lead an organisation in need of strategic and communications expertise, I would recommend you bring Sharon on board and see how she can transform your business, as she has ours.
CEO, Third Sector, Ireland
Sharon met me where I was, discerned my hopes and fears, and gently guided me to my destination. She stayed with me through my journey, translating foreign concepts into terms I understood. Her approach appealed to my logical mind, my wounded heart, and my eternal soul.
Business Services Owner, Canada
I am blessed to have Sharon’s input in my business. The suggestions and guidance on my work are always amazing and support me move forward to achieve my dreams. Most importantly her encouragement and “editorship” support me get out of my own way.
