Talking business with Ciaron Dunne
What are the biggest challenges of growing a business?
Genie Ventures is a real Cambridge success story. It is a fast-growing digital marketing and publishing company that owns and operates four successful brands: Genie Goals, Broadband Genie, Genie Shopping and Office Genie.
With a staff of 60 operating principally in the UK, European and US markets, it is a tech-focused company that works with some of the biggest global brands including Google, Amazon, Karl Lagerfeld and Sky.
Each of the brands has a dedicated team behind it who are experts in their fields, but it’s the influence of the founder, Cairon Dunne, that keeps the expanding business working like a family – pooling resources, sharing successes and learning from challenges together. The Genies work and play hard in a friendly, positive environment, largely created by Ciaron.
Sizing things up
This session will look at what growth and development has done for the business and it’s people. It will also look at the challenges that have had to be overcome, the work required to realise the opportunities that have presented themselves and where Genie is heading in the future.
Applicable to all
Ciaron’s experience at Genie is motivational for any business owner, listening, learning and applying these types of methodologies is what Drive is all about. Open sharing and collaboration is at the heart of what we do, we see how this helps our members to identify and overcome hurdles, turn problems into opportunities and maintain the spark that started the business in the first place.
Ciaron was last with Drive the Network just over 18 months ago, sharing the importance of a good working environment within your business. Read and listen to that session here.
