I am a Scout Leader so naturally a lover of the outdoors, When I’m not busy with the scouts, I am constantly seeking out new and even more challenging peaks around Ireland. Keeping in shape is a constant driving force and my philosophy has always been “Mens sana in corpore sano” (A healthy mind in a healthy body).
“ActionPoint have been developing a strong reputation both nationwide and internationally in the past few years.

Back in October, I decided to interview John for a Fireside chat at City centre tech meet-up, “Founder Friday”, where I learned a lot about the technological challenges the company was solving for their clients. Like the audience that night, I was blown away by the solutions that the company was developing and so when the opportunity to work with ActionPoint came a-begging, it was a no-brainer.”
