Having been born into a business family, and showing an imaginative entrepreneurial spirit from a young age, John Buckley studied Business at the University of Limerick. He graduated in 2012 majoring in Marketing, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. Following college he undertook further study in the field of Public Relations and landed his first ‘notable’ position as the Account Manager for PR Slides (now PicStash). Here, John advised a number of Ireland’s biggest brands on their Product PR, while helping to develop the fledging start-up which, under the wing of Niall Harbison, was to soon be recognised by Forbes as one of the companies leading Ireland out of the recession. He has since gone on to advise other start-ups in both Chicago, IL and Ireland; highlighting the importance of developing User Centred Value Propositions.
Fervently passionate about volunteerism and community activism, in 2014 John cofounded STC Limerick – a local non-profit which organises volunteers to donate their time to better the lives of the marginalised and vulnerable in his hometown. He continues to explore other ways in which to connect communities and people. His zest for living energises him to get the most out of life, while attempting to have a positive impact upon others and the world around him.
