Associations I’m Involved With

Entrepreneurs Organisation (EO)

The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is a Global business network of 12,000+ leading entrepreneurs in 160 chapters and 50 countries. Founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs, EO enables business owners to learn from each other, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life.

We educate, we transform, we inspire and we offer invaluable resources in the form of global events, leadership-development programs, an online entrepreneur forum and executive education opportunities, among other offerings designed for personal and professional growth.

I was one of the founding members of EO Ireland and have served as MarComm Chair and GSEA Chair.  I have also served as the European Chair and the Global Chair for the GSEA competition.  

I am currently serving on the EOA Global Committee (see below)

EO Accelerator (EOA)

an Entrepreneurs’ Organisation (EO) learning programme.

EO is the only global network exclusively for entrepreneurs, male and female, helping leading entrepreneurs learn and grow through peer-to-peer learning, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and connections to experts. Sharing that learning with entrepreneurs in the earlier stages of their business has led to the development of the EO Accelerator program.

The Accelerator program is the catalyst that enables first stage entrepreneurs to catapult their business to the next level. It is a learning program for entrepreneurs who want to grow their current business, with a turnover of €250,000 to pass the €1M mark

Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (EOGSEA)

an Entrepreneurs’ Organisation (EO) programme.

The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier global competition for students who own and operate a for-profit and/or social enterprise structured business while attending college of university.

Nominees compete against their peers from around the world in a series of local and/or national competitions in hopes to qualify for GSEA Finals.

I have served as the Irish, European and Global Chairs for the competition.  I have been the MC for European Finals and Global Finals.

Liffey Archers

It all started back in 2010.

Always looking for ways to develop the sport of archery and bring it to the wider community, Tony Walsh (Greenhills Archery Club) suggested that a group of archers should set up a new archery club to accommodate the anticipated growth of archery.

Founding board were; Sarah Dunne, Mark Byrne, Robert Shannon, James Galvin and myself.
