I worked with Simon for a period of about four years. During that time he wrote numerous technical and business articles while in charge of the marketing strategies for the company and public relations. At Advanced Innovations, Simon quickly created and put in place new metrics in order to help navigate the company through rough waters. Simon is a practical individual who keeps his sights on the end goal and plots a direction according to the current circumstances. He is quick to apply technology when and where it best serves the purpose of the company. I enjoyed working with him, and would not hesitate to do it again if the opportunity arises.

Simon O’Keeffe is not only one of the brightest people I have ever known, he also taught me a huge amount about marketing while I was running my first graphic design business in West Cork.

Simon is a lively and generous character, much respected by his peers, who became both a friend and a professional guide.

Ich arbeite seit 2003 mit Simon O’Keeffe als Berater auf verschiedenen Feldern zusammen: Marketing, Krisenkommunikation, Markteintritt Irland, Kommunikationsberatung. Ich kann eine Zusammenarbeit mit Mr. O’Keeffe empfehlen, weil er sich stets als klarer Denker und Stratege erwiesen hat. Es macht immer wieder Freude, gemeinsam mit ihm Maßnahmenpläne zu erstellen, von der Zielsetzung bis zur Exekution, und sie mit ihm umzusetzen.
