Cathal Doorley, CEO, Rezoomo, December 2019

“At Rezoomo we are passionate about helping our clients use and promote their employer brand and culture as a key part of their talent acquisition strategy. As a startup ourselves it's very important to identify our mission, vision and values that contribute to our culture as we grow. A couple of weeks ago we had our good friend Dave of Conexion.ie spend half a day with the full Rezoomo team. It was fantastic to hear what each team member thought of our mission and what they perceived to be our values. It has helped us to focus and reshape our mission and values moving forward and we will use this as a core theme when we are adding to the team. I highly recommend companies of all shapes and sizes go through this and can't recommend Dave and Conexion.ie enough.”

“After 5 successful years in business, and with exciting growth plans, BabyBoo.ie was at a point where we needed to further ‘connect’ our Culture and People to achieve our strategy, we needed to revise our vision, mission, goals and values and wanted to include the team in this vision for the next 5 years. We were delighted to partner with Dave on a Culture & Strategy Workshop in October 2019 and subsequent follow-ups, the results of which we are quickly implementing and are already seeing the positive impacts within the team and the business.

David Carroll, Managing Director, Induchem Group, December 2019

“In August 2019, Dave held a Culture & Strategy Workshop to help us define the values and vision of Induchem going forward. This was a very productive and insightful half-day where we prioritized what was important to the group to ensure we continue down a path of Integrity, Flexibility and Excellence. The aim of the following day’s People Connection Masterclass was to improve Talent Management at Induchem Group and to ensure that staff are clear on the vision of the company so that we can continue to grow. The workshop has helped to define our new Mission & Purpose of ‘Expert people, best-in-class products and exceptional services, maximizing customer uptime through innovation and reliability’. We will continue to work with Conexion.ie to improve on various processes in the company from recruitment to onboarding etc.”

Anthony Cotter & Justin Cronin, Co-Founders & Directors, Coolgrey Strategic Creative Agency, December 2019

“Celebrating 15 successful years in operation, and with exciting plans for further evolving Coolgrey’s service offering going forward, we recognised the imperatives of taking time to ‘connect’ our Culture, Strategy and People, to better align our vision and core business values. We had designed Conexion.ie’s branding in October 2018, and were inspired by the clear vision and purpose behind the brand proposition in helping businesses optimise their organisational resources. We were delighted to partner with Dave on our own Culture & Strategy Workshop in May 2019. The process was engaging and the outputs have been instrumental in guiding our strategy for growth. And we look forward to continued alliance with Dave and Conexion.ie, into the future as an integral member of the Coolgrey Connected initiative to deliver an enhanced, value-adding brand communications service to clients.”

Valerie Finnegan Cahill, Founder & Owner, Ikon Hair Cork, May 2019

“This year, it was an aspiration of mine to put cultural health and effectiveness at the heart of every business decision that we make in Ikon. We realized that culture was one of the core sustainable business advantages that we could grow and develop in this rapidly changing time. Investing in our culture and people first would be key to our success. Knowing that this would take commitment and absolute buy-in from the whole team, we turned to Dave to help us establish our company values, goals and Talent Management. The Conexion.ie workshops were amazing! Dave created a space where the whole team got involved and took ownership in deciding who Ikon is, what do we want to be known for and where are we going, to help establish our company values, objectives and Talent Management. We started laying the essential foundations, and with Dave’s guidance found the right balance between the ideal culture we wanted to create and the practicalities of growing Ikon, via the alignment of our culture, strategy & people. We now have clear purpose and focus which we can implement. Our culture maintains the essence of our identity, mission and values alive, while evolving to reflect the changing make-up of our business and team.”
