Zoom Party c/c Find A Venue

Sean Gleeson

The Zoomparty.ie idea was born out of the Covid 19 crisis. After numerous corporate clients of Find A Venue out of the goodness of their hearts dropped goodwill messages checking in but also asking if we had any ideas for virtual events. That lit the fire and Zoom party was born. Our Managing director Sean Gleeson is the Founder and brains behind Zoom Party & Findavenue.ie. Most recently he was the Regional winner in the 2020 start-up awards for COVID-19 pivot response category and went on to be shortlisted and represent Dublin in the National startup awards.

With 18 years of sales and marketing experience and 15 years working for numerous Dublin venues, he decided to create a new concept in the Irish events industry in 2011 by launching a free venue finding service.

In these years, he has built up great relationships with thousands of corporate clients, conference organisers and hundreds of Dublin venues and is now in a unique position to advise both corporate clients & venue owners on a daily basis.

He offers a free and impartial venue finding service and expert local advice to meeting planners, associations and incentive organisers looking to host an event in Ireland

Finally finding entertainment options for corporate clients for years makes him a one-stop-shop for engaging and original entertainment for your event or party. Sean’s aim is to make your night a success using all his experience dealing with venues, talent and logistics to bring a fun, stylish and new experience to your clients and employees. He always aims to start with the correct big picture, then take care of all the details and make sure everyone is having fun while doing it!

CyberPie

You know you need cybersecurity.

But if you’re a small business owner, you’ve probably felt frustrated that none of the cybersecurity industry’s advice, fixes and workarounds are tailored to you.
In Ireland alone, microbusinesses make up 90% of the business landscape, and they struggle to secure adequate cybersecurity. While big corporations can afford a dedicated cybersecurity department, you’re left wearing many hats when leading a small business – and you just can’t find the time to put on your cybersecurity one.
As a result, you’re fearful that you’re leaving your business undefended, and – worse still – you know you risk losing your customers’ trust.

Our entire business is dedicated to helping you protect yours.
We built CyberPie to give you and your small business a piece of the cybersecurity pie, to offer a one-stop solution so you can defend your business while getting ahead withrunningyour business.

The Book Resort

Enhancing the lives of our customers by creating moments of literary and gifting magic.

Wondering how it all began?  My name is Aisling and I founded The Book Resort in Waterford in late 2019.  This is how it all started….

It was simple really, it usually is!

Take a big reader, who also happens to be a big chocaholic with a dream.  I wondered if maybe, just maybe it would be possible to combine books + chocolate together, somehow!

So it started with a thought (A little “I wonder…” moment), and then the work began.  At the beginning it was all thinking, talking, researching, reading-yes more reading , and slowly the idea of “The Book Resort” started taking shape.  Then meetings, training, mentoring, lists-lots of lists…did I mention lists and sure enough stuff started happening.

Back to the drawing board a number of times, a few debates & discussions.  Then we launched, gently at first, and people seemed to like it, really really like it.

It was soon clear that more was needed, so I did what any sane person would do and I left my job, my lovely, secure job!  Yes, I was secretly terrified but very excited.

Then a global pandemic happened (it’s like a story gone wrong) and suppliers closed while customers started asking for more products.  So we pulled up our sleeves (aka, did not sleep very much), put our heads down and got to work and kept working and working and sure enough it started coming back together.  So now in 2021, we have a new premises, loads and loads of lovely new and old suppliers, more relationships built, loyal customers and a tiny but passionate dedicated team (including my two sons) who are helping us grow.

SiSú

The story of SiSú

Brian McGann was so inspired by what his wife Fiona was doing at home that he thought – why can’t these drinks be available everywhere and to everyone, and so started the incredible successful journey of how this Limerick family has brought their multiple award winning plant based healthy drinks to all corners of Ireland.

Fiona McGann is a mum of 6, and has had a deep passion for understanding the link between our food and our health for over 20 years. She has researched, tested, tasted and embraced organic & nutritious wholefoods over the years. Fiona was somewhat of a pioneer –  juicing when juicers were not readily available  in Ireland, growing wheatgrass in the kitchen (raising an eyebrow or two from her children’s friends!), and making her own shots and kombuchas, well before it was fashionable! Even today, explaining what a scoby is, is no easy task!

Fiona immersed herself with her incredible energy – reading books, blogs & newsletters, attending conferences & seminars to become more informed, and even working with her local health-food stores, to encourage them to source new “superfoods” where possible.

 

Taste Matters

While health was a huge motivator for Fiona, one thing she always made important in the creation of her drinks and snacks was taste. The need to please the tastebuds of 6 kids certainly enhanced her skills in this area! Her children still remember how their friends would be envious of their lunches, and always loved coming to their house for Fiona’s delicious creations.

 

From the Kitchen table to your fridge

Over the years friends, family, schools and local sports clubs would ask Fiona to share her knowledge, and also to make, and even sell, her products. So it was a natural evolution to make these delicious, healthy drinks available to a much wider audience.
