About Us

Our Clients
Core Consulting was established by Eunan O’Carroll. Eunan has over 29 years of experience in the financial services sector both in the UK and Domestic markets where he has established a reputation in the distribution change management area.

We work with organisations large and small to assist them in the development and implementation of practical change management programmes within their sales, marketing and distribution divisions. Our solutions include the introduction of new ways of working; greater transparency in performance management, positive behavioural change, leading to a higher degree of productivity within a commercially focused organisation.

We typically work along-side the existing management team for a short period to gain a greater understanding of what is going on and why. These teams include; sales/account executives, regional and product managers and sales & marketing directors. Our approach is very much a practical, hands-on intervention rather than a theory. We stay until the solution is fully implemented. We usually start by reviewing current practice/strategy and its effectiveness following which we produce an Initial Business Observation report

In the case of a larger organisation, typically our contracts with clients last for a period of 3-5 years, and 6-12 months in the case of a smaller company such as a Financial Advisory Firm, etc. From this experience we then develop a detailed change management plan that deals with all areas of the commercial divisions of the business including sales, marketing, distribution and brand positioning. We also deliver specialised one off projects for clients as part of their overall change management programme.

Core Consulting has a wealth of practical on the job experience and a proven track record and portfolio in distribution change management.
