"I started 2014 with two goals: To become Irish Senior Boxing Champion and to be selected to represent Ireland at the European Boxing Championships.
Physically I knew I was ok and putting the work in, however it was the mental side of things that I feared would let me down, so I decided to address this with Damien.
I didn't realise just how much I would learn, and what a massive impact it would have on me. My whole mental approach to a fight has changed. I now understand how to 'control the controllables', I can identify and dismiss my 'Saboteur' and now have new techniques which help me plan and prepare for a fight.
Damien is excellent. His passion and enthusiasm is infectious. I felt that he was with me every step of the way. Needless to say I now have the Irish title in the bag and the IABA have just announced their squad for the Europeans. I am delighted to say, I am on it, and heading to Bucharest at the end of May. I guess Dreams really do precede Reality!
Thank you for all your help, encouragement and guidance Damien.

Management Perspective / Business:
“In this area of expertise, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Focus 2 Succeed was recommended to me by someone who had previously engaged their services, and having been impressed by their story, I contacted Damian. Our experience turned out to be even better that we had been anticipating.
Damian's style is both challenging and authentic. He encouraged participants to contribute and facilitated a genuine re-think on what we do and why we do it? A real shift in our business culture is taking place, in particular as a result of his delivery of the "Model of Engagement". An awareness around individual needs and business objectives, and everybody's responsibilities around them, has led to a paradigm shift in the way that we are now looking at our future.
If you are serious about shaking things up,and brave enough to make changes, Focus2Succeed can be the catalyst to get you turned around. Fantastic.
Top Tip: Management & Staff should both do the programme to facilitate the united approach to change. Trust & Responsibility = Engaged & Confident Staff.
Thanks and continued success.

"At the beginning ..... I wasn’t feeling that I was achieving my full potential and as a result my confidence and self esteem, although looked great to all those around me, inside I was screaming with frustration.....
Through the series of workshops we identified areas in which I needed to focus .....
I am now working full time and ..... In my other field of passion, which is politics, I have taken responsibility of an ever growing and dynamic young political organisation and I have seen it develop to one of the ‘model branches’ that currently exist in the country .....
After all ‘Where your focus goes your energy flows”
