I am a qualified PR consultant also so understand the needs of the PR professional. I have worked on press in the European Parliament and Parliament elections. During 1999 I headed a countrywide health campaign in Ireland collecting 78 thousand signatures and countrywide media coverage. This resulted in the Irish minister for Health making changes in the Department of Health and appointing me as Consumer Director of the Irish Medicines Board - the board responsible for all pharmaceutical licencing in Ireland. In the Arts area I have worked with the Eurochild International Festival achieving countrywide print and media coverage for the Festival during European Capital of Culture 2005 .
