Cathal Gaffney and Darragh O’Connell founded Brown Bag Films in 1994 after eschewing the then traditional Bluth Studios post-college route and they made a name for themselves with Give Up Your Aul Sin there, of course. 

Well Two years ago they sold the business to the Canadian Studio 9 Story, taking up roles there as Chief Operating Officer and Group Creative Director.

Sinéad Egan visited Gibraltar recently and spoke to residents there – and while the territory may have delivered the most resounding Remain vote of last year’s referendum at 96 per cent - there was absolutely no appetite to abandon or even change their relationship with the UK now, as reality bites.

Kim Kristensen is now Master of Ceremonies at the Danish Royal Court... but he has also harnessed his many years of frontline leadership in extreme conditions and applied those lessons to the corporate world as a coach and now with his book Follow Me: Leading from the front. Kim believes that the power of example is the key, and that no boss should ask an employee to do something they wouldn’t do themselves.
