Mairéad is a sustainability consultant and mechanical engineer who started her career in building services in Ireland. Her interest in environmental conservation and renewable energy took her into the world of commercial wind-farming in the early 2000′s at a time when environmental consciousness was largely lacking in Ireland.
She has more than 7 years experience in various aspects of environmental sustainability, including renewable energy design & project management, sustainability audits, sustainable branding & marketing and is committed to helping businesses and organisations flourish and achieve their triple bottom line. Her experience in sustainable branding has given her a focused outlook for sustainability opportunities within businesses and organisations.
Promoting business’ sustainability credentials led Mairéad to copywriting and online marketing. Mairéad has written website content and carried out online marketing for clients in a range of product & services businesses. She conducts website reviews and consults on best practices for optimising business websites and sustainability credentials.
Mairéad’s enthusiasm for environmental sensitivity has naturally extended into the area of human consciousness and she is greatly involved in the fields of personal development and human potential.
Mairéad has worked in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
