how we got started – key moments
In 2012 Niamh Ni Mhuiri, social entrepreneur, solicitor and mother had a vision to put being well at the heart of Irish society. The idea was inspired by a number of personal challenges and family tragedies she experienced in her life. And so began her passion for sparking conversations of truth and transformation.
niamh began with a small team with carrying out preliminary research. engaging with the public, organisations and students in UCC in exploring people’s well being. Over 1,000 people engaged in our desktop research and then we went to Liss Ard Estate, in Cork, to listen & talk about the well-being needs of our nation.
We designed a dialogue process to “Harness the Power of the Collective” and piloted a “Transformational Leadership Programme”. We hosted in Cork the ‘Pepsico Global Summit’ with over 100 global participants to dialogue on the barriers to the occupational health agenda and unearthed possible solutions.
We piloted a Transformational Programme with the Microsoft Leadership team over 18 months inviting a community of facilitators to come together weaving creative processes with different facilitation methodologies and styles to create a unique experience.
September 2017, we held a dialogue in Ireland with the Global Council of Occupational Health Nurses and the Council of American Association of Occupational Health.
We also worked with 300 Law Society Students. We developed a train the trainer programme and did a dialogue on well being and the barriers in the legal sector.
