Nicola McGrane


Nicky established the company in 1998. Driven by passion and enthusiasm, the key values which underpin her approach are quality, trust and integrity. She takes a “hands on approach” to her business and is regarded as a leading lateral thinker with an innovative approach to problem solving and delivery. Renowned for her ability to identify opportunities, her creative thinking and strategic advice has been sought at the highest level by numerous corporations, government and industry bodies. Nicky’s vision is matched by her sense of fun – it would not be unusual to come across her in one of Dublin’s famous cocktail bars entertaining a client group with her finely tuned piano skills. No surprise given her BA in Music from University College Dublin.
