It’s a very big week ahead for Tom Sauce. Let’s take a quick look back before looking forward.
In February, I joined the Marketing Development Programme here in Dublin. The MDP is based out of the Smurfit Graduate Business School, and operates as a marketing consultancy working with some pretty cool commercial entities. Things have been pretty busy as a result – which would account for the sparse posts from February until now – but the work we’re doing is the best kind of work you can get; challenging.
I attended the fantastic MiMind event run by the lovely Aoife from Covet Mimi, and had the privelege of listening to some brilliant people and their thoughts and personal stories on mental health – an issue which is being talked about progressively nowadays and needs to stay that way.
I also discovered my current favourite coffee house: Bear Market. Now, I was definitely not a coffee drinker before moving to Dublin, but mother of god; the fast paced and never ending work really would make you hooked. I’m starting to question how I was ever productive without it before. Flat whites are key;
But sometimes a cup of coffee just doesn’t cut it in terms of keeping you fresh, making rest and relaxation the only two remedies that can keep you in tip top shape. Which is exactly what I did.
So now we’re in April – coming to the end of it in fact. I’m delighted to say that this month I’ve had the privelege of being nominated for some awards too. Tom Sauce got a mention in the new blog, male, and travel blog categories at the Irish Bloggers Association Bloggers Choice Awards. I’m absolutely over the moon that my content is up for consideration amongst some great Irish talent, and I’m also thrilled that people had the kindness to nominate me; thank you!
And of course, I’m looking forward – as always – to the Heineken Kinsale Sevens this year. I’m happy to say they’re bringing me back to cover the event and enjoy what has become one of my favourite weekends of the year. The entire crew from the office will be going; so it’s going to be a pretty big affair. And I absolutely cannot wait.
I’ll be back next weekend to show you exactly what the tournament was like – until then, take it easy and enjoy the Sevens.
