Darryl is effective at developing conversations away from the script, if the content is striking a chord with the audience. She is not afraid to pivot quickly and has managed through many a technical hitch without the audience noticing.

She can focus on a broad range of business and finance topics due to her qualifications as an FCCA accountant and MBA plus over 20 years in management and consulting. As well as being involved with a number of award-winning Irish and UK start-ups.

Most recently hosted the 2 days BlackLine ‘Intheblack’ 17 & 18th March online finance event and a lead panellist on the Microsoft London online event start of June.

She has also been a panelist at events such as Pure London, for Enterprise Nation and IOD events discussing business strategy, digital innovation and finance.
