It was a pleasure to sit down and chat with Sophie Eustace, Account Manager at Wilson Hartnell, one of the longest established communications agencies in Ireland.
Sophie was included in The 2018 Sport for Business 30 under 30 list, which identifies individuals who will be among the next generation of Ireland’s sporting leaders. This was the first Pursuit of Your Route Podcast episode that I recorded. I recorded it in December and I’m delighted to share it with you all now.
Sophie talks about her passion for sport and music at school, her decision to take a year out after missing out on her preferred college course by just five points after the Leaving Cert and her subsequent studies in Film, English and Public Relations in UCD and DIT.
We chat about Sophie’s quick progression from Intern to Account Manager at Wilson Hartnell in just over three years and how she has managed to marry her love of sport with PR.
In this episode Sophie also describes the amazing experience she had working with the Irish Team in Pyeongchang at the 2018 Winter Olympics, where she was responsible for gathering media coverage of the Irish team and providing Irish athletes with media training.
Finally, Sophie gives current leaving cert students great advice about choosing a college course that is right for them and explains why she believes an arts degree is a good option for those who are unsure about what to study after secondary school.
I hope you enjoy this episode!
