Branding Over The Years

Going through some clear up for The Trade House on the occasion of my retirement, I was asked how many brands I have been involved in. The answer is probably over 100!

Anyway I went through the files and here is a list of the brands and businesses that I have personally devised at my desk in my office with my own hands. Okay one of these brands was conceived in the back on a Boeing 737 flying from Dublin to London! I wonder if you can guess which one!

It has been an absolute pleasure to devise, develop and work on each of these brands. No outside involvement was involved the development of these brands.

At some juncture in the future I may write some blogs on other ventures, brands and companies I have been involved with as a consultant, director, shareholder or adviser.
