As an experienced entrepreneur and an executive with a successful 40+ year career, I recently learned that 'you are never to old to learn'.
Providing strategic advise & project management services to clients and companies interested in emerging technologies has always been an interest of mine, but more recently it's a breath of fresh air to work with people a third of my age.
In the 1990's, I was lucky to be involved with the drive - to convert analog signals to digital signals, so that computers would be able to read, understand and manipulate data.
Who knew ? Its old hat now to talk about the conversion of analogue to digital but back then it was oh so exciting - initially, to be involved with the launch of TG4 - a digital TV station, located in the West of Ireland at Baile na hAbhann, Co. Galway and subsequently with 'The Secret Garden', Cork, one of the first truely digital recording studio's in Ireland. Since then, I have served my time as CEO to a Polish/Irish software company and a Swedish/ Irish game dev company. Since then, I have enjoyed being involved in the development of many many websites, online apps and more.
I spent a number of years as ICT Advocate with Enterprise Ireland where I was charged to travel and meet some amazing people working in high tech start-ups here in Ireland.
Work that makes 'a difference', 'DATA' that matters ...
More recently, I co-founded Anamo Prometrics Ltd a start-up involved with using markerless motion capture in a range of different sectors - clinical assessments; high performasmnce sports and digital media - AR & VR.
A recent success has been our collaboration with Gillian O'Dwyer (Head Physio) and her team at Enable Ireland, Cork which resulted in our development of AnamoCGA™ - a clinical gait analysis facility for children and teens with Cerebral Palsy. We are now working to development AnamoMES™ - a movement efficiency screening facility loosly based on FMS (functional movement screening).
On a personal basis, I enjoy researching and developing fund-raising practices and when time allows I look to support 'special needs' projects here in Ireland. On occasion as an executive coach to CEOs, I help to improve sales and marketing by developing 'go-to-market' strategies. For the remainder of 2019 I will be busy but I am always interested in discovering new technologies that will help make a 'difference'.
