It’s all about overcoming adversity and living your life to the full
Finbar O’Brien (Polio Survivor and My Father)
Growing up in the Irish countryside, surrounded by rivers, woods and nature, Neil retains his keen love of the outdoors. Many of his weekends are still spent walking, golfing and hill-walking.
He picked up a love of local and national history from his father and is passing the flame of that passion on younger family members. He always played lots of sports and his competitive nature showed up in winning Irish national titles in both soccer and golf. Both were part of teams and working together in local communities is still a key part of his life.
This theme of communities also features heavily in his business life and as well as doing consulting work, he is passionate about running Mastermind groups. These groups are communities of 8-10 business owners, who meet every month to both motivate and help each other to drive their businesses forward.
Referrals have always been a key part of his business and he developed a unique system to help clients pass him new clients, which brought over 80% of his business for many years.
