Plan your Business Success

What do our customers say?

Padraig’s accurate and fast analysis of our challenges aided us greatly to focus our resources in the right places and act effectively . His advice and insights on the human considerations for the business enabled me to formulate well balanced actions to achieve our new goals.

Manager of a SME, Galway.

Hi Padraig, I saw you liked my post yesterday and just wanted to drop you a quick message of thanks. I came to see you in Monksland back in 2015 after dropping out of college without even a remote idea of what I wanted to do. With your help 5 years later I’m graduating from a Masters in a field I am really passionate about and on placement in a job I love doing. I suppose I just really wanted to say thank you and I hope you’re doing well! All the best.

Initially we engaged Padraig to provide our staff with training and on Excel/Word and provide practical tips on how use it to benefit their day-to-day work. The quality of Padraig’s training and expertise was such that we decided to implement some new and more automated processes (using excel) across the company. In conjunction with staff, Padraig designed and implemented the new process with real value-added systems. Padraig is professional, diligent and processes an excellent business knowledge base to help you solve your problems.

Padraig has worked us to establish how best we organise ourselves to be more effective as a management team. Through his expert use of assessment, his coaching and knowledge of large organisations, we have gained clarity on the strengths we have and share with each other, along with how we can collectively overcome our shortcomings. Having recently reorganised accordingly, we are already experiencing significant benefits. I would highly recommend any organisation work with Padraig to achieve this awareness and gain these insights to work more effectively with each other.

R&D Manager, Medtronic. 

I attended a one-day training delivery workshop delivered by Professional Coach & Mentor Padraig O’Connor from Coach Your Goal. The workshop was delivered in collaboration with his colleague Joe Barrett.

I took so much away from the day and learned new skills on how to focus my energy and time into identifying one key thing that I needed to focus on this year. Padraig was so generous with his time and advice. The workshop was also delivered in a really nice informal yet professional setting which really had a positive impact on the running of the day. Looking forward to future training sessions like this.

Athlone Hampers.

I reached out to Padraig to get some advice and guidance in relation to my career and to help me establish what my next steps should be. I found his coaching techniques very helpful, we started with the Harrison career assessment, this showed me what my strengths are, some I was surprised about. This in turn helped to identify the jobs that would be both suitable and enjoyable for me. Following on from this we had a meeting to brainstorm jobs that I may like best and Padraig provided guidance on how I could further research those jobs and the work involved to see if they were a good fit for me. Once I had picked a career which I felt suited me best, Padraig help me to get on the right path to reach my goal. I am currently in the middle of a new course, making the first moves to my new career. I would highly recommend Padraig’s services to anyone who wants more from their career but isn’t quite sure about how to approach it.

If you are looking for direction and guidance for your next step give Padraig a call. He was a great help to me when I needed some clarity. Padraig has a great ability of clearing the way for you to see what you are best suited for in terms of career and business. A very genuine individual who is very easy to work with. Above all he is polite, highly professional and cares about his clients. I will be keeping in touch with Padraig.

Damien Brennan

Padraig is a very knowledgeable trainer who takes the time to understand your company. This makes the training more applicable and impactful for employees. The courses delivered on transversal skills engaged our employees and had them looking forward to the next session.
