Anne was elected President of Network Ireland Mayo for 2018 and then re-elected for 2019.

Before establishing her own training company Anne worked for Irish Independent News and Media group as a Sales Manager, Corporate Express Ireland as a Senior Account Manager and BWG Foods as Branch manager in Value Centre Carrickmacross and Castlebar.  As part of Anne’s role within these companies she managed and trained employees for over 25 years. She has vast knowledge in sales and people development, which bought her to launch All About Sales 9 years ago, which works with businesses to improve staff performance and to increases sales.  Anne also trains in communities delivering soft skills training like confidence building stress management to mention a few.

As a mature student Anne returned to college and studied an Honours Degree in Training and Education (2014) and Masters in Adult Learning and Development (2016).  No surprise one of Anne’s passions is education and it’s delivery to adults – far from the school setting is her training! As for the other 2 passions – Sales, lives and breaths it, and recently social dancing, just to relax!

I set up EAV -Event Audio Visual in August 2017.  EAV provides sound, lighting and audio visual services to the corporate and entertainment industries. We supply microphones, speakers, projectors, screens, lighting, video-cameras, live streaming and event management. I work alongside my husband Ray Forde who has over 22 years of experience in the Audio Visual industry.  Ray has the technical skills needed to deliver for our clients to make EAV stand out from the rest.

The services available allow for a broad range of clients such as choirs, meetings and conferences, fashion shows, festivals, concerts, weddings, musicals, launches, awards, masterclasses, corporate and public events.

I work collaboratively with clients from start to finish delivering what is promised and expected. I take the calls and answer your emails to ensure your event is one to remember. “It can be a daunting and stressful process in organising an event so I want to take the pressure off by letting our clients know that we can take care of the event production”.

“The Only Event That Matters Is Yours” is the business slogan because it reinforces our attention to detail on every event which is paramount to delivering a well executed production that leaves a lasting impression.

I’m Louise Buckley and a native of Dublin. I moved to Ballina in June 2017 when I  bought and reopened Claddagh House B&B. The 9 bedroom house was purpose built 25 years ago and in need of renovation.  After a very successful first season I’m looking forward to building on the business to welcome lots of travelers from far and wide. Our shuttle bus was also a fantastic added bonus to ferry guests into town or to local weddings in the area. I’m delighted to be a member of Network Mayo and now proud to be elected on to the committee.
