As head of the RTE Local Heroes Project, I had the great pleasure of working with the Directors of WhiteLight Consulting, Con and Karen.
I experienced how they devised ideas for community based campaigns including street festivals and themed decoration of the historic town centre. I watched how they took those concepts and turned them into reality. I was particularly impressed by their ability to build support for these campaigns by recruiting and motivating teams of volunteers across all sectors of the community. Equally they understood the importance of engaging the media to help to build awareness of key messages.
The result, in every single case, was a meticulously planned project, resources carefully managed and a superb experience for all those who were involved. The highlight for me was “Lighting Up Drogheda on the Boyne”, a superb Christmas spectacular that saw over 5,000 people enjoying all that the town has to offer. I look forward to working with WhiteLight Consulting again in the future!
