Clodagh O'Connor-McKenna

"I enjoy the opportunity I get to really get to know a business, its people and its priorities. The reality of how decisions are actually made in Wellington can be a real mystery to people and I like helping unravel a bit of that mystery for my clients so they can just get on with running their business."
