What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

In school I studied English, Irish, Maths, History, and French. As I came to this line of work late in life experience and courses I have done since leaving school have been helpful to me.

I did the foundation in counseling skills course in Maynooth College, I feel this has helped me in my work as it developed my listening skills.

Also here I had my first introduction to non verbal communication and reading body language etc., which is very useful in my current job as I work with people who communicate largely by non verbal means.

If I could go back in time I would have worked harder in school and achieved a better leaving certificate, as I spent many years doing a job I was not suited to.

French has always stood to me and I believe that business studies has given me a brief insight into the career I have chosen and how to run a business etc.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Business and mathematics have been the most relevant subjects for my current role, but this industry is very much a learn as you do environment and I believe that the right attitude and a willingness to learn will take you far in this industry.
