Mentoring, Consulting & Training
Hello, I’m Declan Droney, and I am delighted to offer you my Mentoring, Consulting and Training services.
Over the past 20 years, I have started, grown and exited a number of businesses, the main one being Kinvara Smoked Salmon. . As a mentor with Enterprise Ireland and a number of Local Enterprise Offices I am delighted to say that over the last 5 years, I have had a positive impact on over 300 start-ups and SMEs.
With Kinvara Smoked Salmon I have had some great victories, received numerous awards and accolades and have traded with some of the top retailers in the world, However it is the mistakes that I made along the way that are far more interesting.
I am delighted to share these learnings and real life experiences with entrepreneurs, who are starting their journeys.
I look forward to hearing from you,
