“When we were starting a new thought leadership conference "ConverCon" Neans came recommended to us a highly professional PR person with a can do attitude. We had never run a conference before and had a relatively under developed marketing function and a limited budget.
“Neans super charged our efforts by bringing our PR up to standard and by connecting us with the journalists and influencers that we needed to make the event a success. We ended up getting national radio coverage, being on the prime time news, and ultimately, selling our event out. On top of this, she was always a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her services without reservation.”

“McSweeney Media has helped Taxback Group with many national & international communications projects since 2012. Neans is a true professional and is highly experienced in media.
“Neans is also a wonderfully positive and innovative person to work with.Taxback Group, we will continue working with McSweeney Media in future.”

“Neans from McSweeney Media went beyond our expectations in offering us personalised attention, creative ideas and eloquent written materials in explaining our complex research to the general public. We have found over the years that McSweeney Media and Neans are sophisticated in their approach, savvy, fun to work with and best of all, gets the job done.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Neans McSweeney and
McSweeney Media on a number of occasions. Her level of
professionalisms and enthusiasm are exceptional. We have struggled
to communicate our research work and its social impact to the wider
non-technical audience. Nans worked with us to develop a number of
articles which helped us to communicate our message better without
undermining the depth of our work. Neans’ strong links with the
national and regional media helped us target our message to the
appropriate audience. I look forward to continuing our collaboration
in the future.”

"Neans has been a lifeline to our business in that she has projected our brand in an attention grabbing and articulate fashion.
From our first meeting she really listened to the story of our business and how it has evolved.
She then worked her magic and had us featured in a national Sunday newspaper among many other media platforms.
As a result of using McSweeney Media we have grown more confident in our sector and have a clearer understanding of how to communicate with our customers.
I couldn't recommend her highly enough."

“Neans gave us great support in the promotion of our Canoeing Ireland Club Championships in Kilkenny in 2014 by promoting the event through her contacts in local,
national and even international media.
“We were very impressed by her availability, always ready to take a call or answer an email at any hour of day, any day of the week to meet the deadlines in event preparation.
Neans really helped to build the hype around the event which contributed greatly to its success.”
Development Officer, Canoeing Ireland
"Neans helped us with getting news of our Intel funding announcement out to the Irish press and media. She was fantastic to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her knowledge of the Irish media scene is impressive - she seems to know everyone and more importantly how they like to operate! She also gave me invaluable advice on organising our press launch in Waterford including local dignitaries, minister and photographer! We got great coverage across the national, local, business and tech press as well as getting on local and national TV and radio.
