“Sinead has chaired a number of conferences for us in the personal finance area and both our clients and us have been delighted with her work. Her experience, professionalism and depth of knowledge is evident in her comfort on stage and her ease in delivering strong audience engagement. Her ability to interview (and where necessary to interrogate) and extract the maximum from panellists, even where they’re not that comfortable in the limelight, is excellent. She has also hosted a number sales and customer interaction training session for our clients. Sinead has an ability to simplify the issues, hook in the participants and deliver excellent and effective sessions.” Peter Mitchell, Business Talk, PR & Communications
