Commercial Experience:

Therese Hackett

Prior to setting up Ciúnas, Thérèse had extensive commercial experience both in the UK and Ireland as a Marketing Manager with a number of Telecommunications Companies.  She was instrumental in setting up two Internet Service Providers and has “survived” mergers, reorganisations, relocations and redundancies.  She was also a Management Consultant providing recruitment, marketing and customer service consultancy. Thérèse has changed her career three times so far, starting off in the Civil Service in Dublin, moving to London to work in Marketing and coming back to Ireland where she has established Ciúnas.

Thérèse is driven by a desire to help people reach their true potential, she has empathy and is a good listener, however, she also knows when it’s time to challenge people to move past the pain and take positive action.  She has faced many personal challenges and trauma in her life which has given her a very powerful awareness and compassion for people, this is invaluable when coaching, designing training programs and in one-2-one therapy.
