About Us

From There to Here

Formed in 2002, Conor Kenny & Associates was born out of a passion for 2 things:

  • Getting the best out of your people
  • Getting the best out of your business

Today, everything we do, absolutely everything, must lead towards these two goals. Quite simply, one cannot work without the other. To illustrate, a quote from one of our many industry articles:

“A hotel or service business is like a theatre. Every night when the lights go down the show is over another day is done. The next day, no matter what has gone before it, the show will have a new audience, often a first time audience, and today’s show must, at the very least, be better than the day before. The actors who will deliver the show are your people. If you do not invest in them in many ways you will have an average show. After all, what is the point of a beautiful comfortable cosy theatre with great sets, great seats and great lighting if the guys on stage have no idea what they are doing?”

Whilst we love helping you create the mood and atmosphere, our focus is on the actors. After all, that’s what creates impact and impact creates memories. Our goal is (naturally) the ‘right memories’ which drive your success.

From humble beginnings, we were brave enough to follow our values and our belief that people need to discover their own solutions as well as a passion for nurturing talent and getting everyone to fulfil their potential. Today, we are honoured to have a 5 Star client list (including the very best 5 Star hotels) right through the satisfying little markers of writing books, speaking internationally, commentating to the press and advising government bodies. From those earliest nervous steps in 2002, our company is immensely (and a little self-indulgently) proud to have graduated through the ranks, right up to the launch of our joint programme with Shannon College of Hotel Management, a College of The National University of Ireland, Galway.

Like you, we have come a long way, made many mistakes but that has added to our learning and no mistake was ever wasted on us. Like you, we are passionate about what we do and although those baby steps have given way to big leaps, our focus remains firmly on building better futures for you, for your brand and especially for your people.
