Derek starting working with Niall and I early as we started the flying business in Ireland. He provided both formal and informal mentoring support, specifically providing us with a insight and advice around property, finance and growth potential. Derek facilitated monthly planning sessions - which allowed us the discipline of reflection and taking time out of the business to work on the business, but also the indispensable gift of having our assumptions and decisions challenged to make them as robust as possible. Derek proved himself to be a wise and reflective confidant with an excellent knowledge of retail in general, but even more specifically in Ireland and we valued the contribution he made to us in the growth of our business.
