Welcome to Lightbulb-Ideas in this 20 year anniversary for the business.
My journey to creating Lightbulb-IDEAS Limited started when I graduated from Shannon College of Hotel Management based at Shannon Airport. Since then I have gained 35 years of Operations Management and leading Training & Development experience in Retail and Retail Catering, Leisure, Shopping Centres, High Street, UK Local Government, Hotels and Airports. I have extensive Brand Creation & Local Marketing experience gained working with international and Irish businesses.
There are 3 strands to the business.
1. Creating,Designing & Delivering really enjoyable Training in the area of 'People Management' and Retail & Hospitality Service & Sales
2. Producing great Training & Life Promotional Videos
3. Brand & Marketing Creative including Creating & Developing Vision, Mission & Values
I have worked in many countries designing, delivering and implementing programmes relating to corporate culture and business practice. I have been involved in corporate training in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the USA.
Working with SSP Air Restaurants to achieve ‘Investor in People’ status, the largest service organisation in the UK to attain the standard at the time, was a highlight.
My brand and design consultancy work has involved projects with The Kenco Coffee Company (Kraft Foods), Unilever, Graham O’Sullivan Family Restaurants, Concorde Travel, NuAmbition Consulting, SSP Airport Restaurants Ltd, Compass Group, An Beal Binn, Smock Alley Theatre, Beaumont Hospital School, Limerick VEC and DeSter Packaging to name but a few.
Of increasing popularity is the area of Video Production. Moving image is powerful and relatable and modern technology means that even SMEs are creating video training and content.
