Dun Laoghaire Chamber of Commerce

Ocarina have produced short testimonial videos for the Dun Laoghaire Chamber of Commerce, as well as capturing important corporate events like An Taoiseach, Ebda Kenny’s visit to the Chamber.

In this video, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s message for the Dun Laoghaire Chamber members is to make use of the new LEO offices and to roll up their sleeves, as we Irish are unstoppable when we work together towards common objectives.

This is a testimonial video we did for the Dun Laoghaire Chamber where several members the benefits that membership brings, including peer support and business networking. It is a great example of testimonials in action.

Department of Education and Science

In 2005 Ocarina (in association with Kairos Communications) produced ‘As Go Brách Linn’: two children’s programmes for the Department of Education and Science.

“As Go Brách Linn” loosely means ‘away with us on an adventure’. Two children teamed up to explore what their lives would be like if they lived in another part of European Union that was very different to where they come from in Ireland. Two boys Padraic and Noel from the Aran Islands, travelled from to Helsinki in the first programme. Niamh and Orla from Dublin went to Cefalú in Sicily for the second programme. Both programmes were broadcast on TG4.

Newstalk 106-108fm

‘Leading Women’ is a radio documentary in produced for Newstalk 106-108fm that was first broadcast on the 2nd and 3rd August 2014. Funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, Leading Women explores the role of women in leadership in Ireland today. The documentary asks why the proportion of women in senior management and leadership roles remains so low and what particular challenges, issues and impediments women face in pursuit of their career and leadership goals.

Leading Women also asks what large organisations like Price Waterhouse Coopers, Microsoft and Google are doing to create and maintain a pipeline of women managers and leaders.

The programme is now available on the Women in Leadership podcast website and on Newstalk’s site.

What our clients say…

“The video that Ocarina made for my Dad’s 80th birthday made his celebration very special. It really brought our family history to life and gave the kids a bigger picture of the family and a greater understanding of how their grandparents and great-grandparents lived.”
