Episode 65: Paul O’Shea – “We’ve brought in a sports psychologist…”


“I had only just bought a house when I started my business. My Dad thought I needed my head examined.”

When Paul O’Shea established Ashview Consultants 16 years ago, he was working out of a box room in a three-bed semi detached home.
In the interim, the company has become an award-winning risk consultancy firm with offices in Dublin, Newry and London.
Paul, as MD and Owner of Ashview Consultants, is our latest guest on AIBF Business Talk with Elaine Carroll, where he speaks about:
– Learnings from a six-year stint in Australia,
– How to make work enjoyable for staff every day,
– The challenges of the current cost of construction,
– And how to overcome the fear of failure when starting a business.

Ashview Consultants is All-Star International Construction Health & Safety Consultancy 2022 with the All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF), while Paul also has the honour of being admitted as Fellow of the All-Ireland Business Foundation (FAIBF).

The AIBF would like to thank Paul for sharing his valuable insights with fellow TRIBE members and the wider public.
