I’ve been privileged to work with a diverse range of organizations.
Keeping in touch with my network of colleagues and friends has always been important to me. I’m proud to share the testimonials below.
Lesley hired me as Communications & Membership Manager at EAZA in 2009.
“Eoghan came to EAZA at a time of transition, adding much needed skills and enthusiasm to communications, membership and events management. Leading the development of a new communications strategy, he built a fantastic team to deliver exemplary membership services and events. Under Eoghan’s leadership this department professionalised and expanded, including the development of the EAZA Academy, the training wing of the association. He transformed the membership magazine, making it the model for its kind amongst zoo associations globally.
Eoghan was a wonderful addition to the EAZA team, with unwavering enthusiasm for the task at hand, great rapport with the diverse membership and a keen eye for what was required. I have no hesitation in recommending Eoghan to any organisation looking to advance in the areas of communications and events.”
I ran the Alumni Office at this world-renowned school, also known as Ecolint, for three years.
“Eoghan joined us in 2014 as Head of Alumni Relations and was simply outstanding in this role thanks to his communication, publishing and technical skills, and his ability to engage with people. More or less single-handedly, he revitalized our engagement with our alumni around the world, organizing networking events, facilitating reunions and putting individuals in touch with each other. He was instrumental in encouraging many alumni to reconnect with Ecolint and gave current students a number of opportunities to learn from them.”
Lieven was the Director of the EBU Technology & Innovation Department where I worked from 2011 to 2014. He is now CEO of SDNsquare.
“With a thoughtful and constructive approach, Eoghan brought a new professionalism to our publications and events at EBU Technology & Innovation. One key strength is his ability to work with different kinds of people, each with their own priorities. He identified the most effective ways to raise the profile of our work, refreshing our quarterly magazine, producing conferences that were consistently highly rated by attendees, and ensuring there was always something interesting happening on our website. He also fully managed our booth at a yearly industry event, including budgets and external suppliers.
Eoghan’s creativity, good humour and calm efficiency would make him a great addition to any team.”
Denis founded an organization that supports people in need through arts events in Geneva.
“Eoghan is a consummate professional. He has completely transformed our ability to communicate with our audience thanks to an attractive new website which he built from scratch at minimum cost and with minimum fuss. It has really made a difference and presents us as a serious player on the Geneva cultural scene. We have also benefited from his excellent writing skills.”
Claudio’s Foundation supports a wide range of conservation projects.
“I have known Eoghan for several years since the time he was a pillar of EAZA. We cooperated very closely in 2011-2012 when he was the architect of Fondation Segré’s communication material. This included a website and a report on activities up to 2012. This work could not have been set up without Eoghan’s inventiveness, artistic abilities, and above all his talent for understanding the Foundation’s activities that we wanted to communicate.
We have remained in close contact since that time and I very much appreciate our intellectual and professional links.”
