A career highlight
I organised a concert in the National Concert Hall in Ireland for an Irish children's charity. We surpassed our overall target of €150,000 by €100,000 - ultimately raising €250,000 as a collective group. As a result of my fundraising efforts, I was asked to address Google HQ in Dublin, IE, as one of four keynote speakers, to talk about the charity and my event.
