Jean O’Brien – Founder
Jean is a digital industry veteran with over 15 years experience working on the web in digital communications and design. She has almost a decade of full time experience working as a digital specialist in Irish charities including Barnardos and Oxfam Ireland.
In these roles she has built and project managed websites, developed digital strategies, planned and delivered content for online fundraising and advocacy campaigns, and worked on the development of internal processes.
She is passionate about collaborative working and peer learning, and has participated in specialised peer training in ecampaigning and digital leadership in the UK, yearly since 2009.
