It’s key success lay in the combination of cutting edge marketing content allied to interactive and participative group work.

Pádraic lives in the west of Ireland where he enjoys surfing, boating and nature. His perfect day is a trip across Galway Bay on a RIB to Inis Oirr where he drinks pints of Guinness and chats in Irish with the locals. His book, ‘The Midas Power’, was based on Inis Oirr and is a parable about a challenged business man who finds solutions to his business and his life on the island.
