Mary Cloonan is brilliant. Her insights and recommendations have been invaluable to me. The best part, she is an absolute delight to work with.

Lisa Benson, Chief Regional Officer Western Markets, HLB

Mary is a Specialist Marketing Consultant whom I met recently through an online business event and from that, invited her to feature on a new podcast which I was producing for the Local Enterprise Office. Throughout all of my dealings with Mary, she has been personable, professional and an absolute delight to deal with. From a marketing perspective, she is a phenomenal source of information, knowledge and ideas and communicates this in an easy-to-understand way that appeals to the most novice business owner. I was in awe of how much value Mary was able to share in just 25 minutes on our podcast episode and I know it will be of huge value to our listeners and clients. What makers her different from other marketing consultants is her sheer passion for the topic as well as her ability to stay on top of latest marketing trends which she translates to winning concepts for her clients. I would highly recommend Mary for anyone looking for an expert/speaker/ panellist on the topic of marketing and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
