I have a great deal of interest driving much of the things in my life. I was involved in bringing call centres to Ireland and later setting up the Irish Call Centre Management Association. I have worked with charities including The Ackroyd Community Child Care Centre in the UK and running the call centre for the Special Olympics International Game 2003.
