I grew up in Kilkenny the oldest of 5 so my leadership development started early!! I studied Law but realised leadership was more my scene and so progressed a career in HR from there. I have worked in a number of industry sectors including Retail, FMCG and Financial Services. Most recently I was the Chief People Officer for AIB. During my time at AIB, I was part of the Leadership team that led the transformational change across the business and returned the bank to profit, delivered the single biggest increase in employee engagement over a 2-year period of any Gallup client based in Europe.
