Work with your organisation to scope your requirements in detail so that you can work out what you and your audience really need.

Building our new website, Donnacha’s scoping helped us find out what we actually needed and helped us go in the right direction. This saved us time, money, manpower and delivered a very robust, agile and responsive website.

Prepare documentation for Expression of Interest and Request for Tender processes and manage those processes for you (circulating information to potential responders, responding to their requests, scheduling meetings and interviews).

What we really appreciate about Donnacha’s work is his ability to sift through stakeholder requirements and then present the information that is actually valuable to us as an agency. That makes our job so much easier and means better overall solutions for the client.

Being able to take the challenges, frustrations and objectives of multiple different parts of a business, and translate them into concrete digital requirements is a real skill, and one Donnacha excels at. His expertise in this field makes him ideally placed to support any organisation who are embarking on a period of digital transformation.

Lead on User Acceptance Testing, drawing on more than 20 years of experience working online, and feed issues back to the technical providers in a way they understand.

We worked together on the new website build for Nautilus international. Donnacha was efficient and methodical when it came to user testing, efficiently raising issues with more than enough detail for us to diagnose and fix.

Support your organisation in preparing and uploading content, drawing on background as a professional online journalist with organisations such as the Irish national broadcaster, RTÉ, and Amnesty International.

Donnacha did a tremendous job in transforming the unionlearn website. His understanding of content and editing skills greatly helped us to refresh and revitalise our site. His website architecture skills and organising content was invaluable in helping us better engage with our audience.

Train your staff on a one-to-one basis on how to use the new system and provide a first point of contact for any queries on using the system or technical issues.

Donnacha’s understanding of trade unions, membership systems and website CMSs was the perfect combination to explain and teach our team practical content builds. His ability to relate web systems to trade unions is a huge plus for anyone in the movement embarking on a website project. We used Donnacha for exploration sessions as well as training and he has some great virtual collaboration tools, which came in handy in lockdown.

Work with your organisation post-launch to identify further improvements that can be made to your online communications, including advising on organisational change to improve your ability to communicate effectively online.

I worked with Donnacha on a major website revamp for unionlearn. He has a great eye for detail and really helped to drive ongoing improvements online.
