Episode 67: Ciaran Shanley – “You can’t fatten a pig the night before a fair”

Ciaran Shanley | AIBF

“Sometimes you have to step backwards to take bigger steps forward.”

With three decades of experience in the financial sector, Ciaran Shanley is better placed than most to reflect on best practice in business.

Clear Financial is thoroughly focused on fostering a positive team environment. To this end, they even brought on board a life/business coach in 2015 that still consults with staff on a fortnightly basis.

As Director of Sales and Operations at Clear Financial, Ciaran Shanley is an integral part of the leading life and pensions brokerage, now in its 20th year in business.

On this episode of AIBF Business Talk, Ciaran shared his insights with Elaine Carroll on:

– Building a culture of togetherness,
– Developing core values for the company,
– The importance of patience,
– Overcoming the fear of failure,
– And much more.

Clear Financial, based in Rathcoole, is a four in-a-row Business All-Star with the AIBF (2019, ‘20, ‘21, ‘22), and we can’t wait to continue our work with them as part of the TRIBE.

The company helps clients to reach their financial goals, and achieve real peace of mind when it comes to the financial wellbeing of their families and businesses.

Thanks to Ciaran for taking the time to share his thoughts on AIBF Business Talk.
