An Entrepreneur, responsible for building two successful businesses in the past, employing a skilled workforce and managing teams.

This difficult time in Máirtín’s life gave him a huge understanding and empathy of how frail our mental health can be. How we need to draw on inner strength and how with determination and the right mindset you can rebuild your life, with an emphasis on the quality of your life rather than the materialacquisitions.
