After 16 years of leadership positions in global multinationals in Asia, USA and Europe, Padraig Hyland, co-founder of The Core Story, left it all behind to follow his dream as a professional stand-up comedian. The experience was both challenging and insightful but, after seven years, Padraig returned to the business world where he found business leaders facing a new challenge – one that was very familiar to him.
He co-founded The Core Story™ with Muireann Ryan, an accomplished actor, singer, voice coach and teacher, whose innate drive helps others learn how to excite audiences. Padraig and Muireann’s unique, story-based approach has proved to be an effective framework that connects with audiences yielding amazing results. The Core Story™ now brings together skills and experience from international business strategy, performing and creative arts, leadership development, broadcasting and journalism, to create meaningful business stories and strategies, with powerful results – in terms of business culture as well as bottom line.
