EY Entrepreneur of the Year (behind the scenes)

Looking back on the last year…

We’ve seen our Dublin team expanding, bringing on new creative minds to develop exciting event ideas for our clients and logistical minds to execute them. We’ve worked with brands, old and new, in Ireland and around the world on conferences, roadshows, large-scale parties, award shows, and brand activations. Our San Francisco office is flourishing, celebrating our first year in the US as a team of 13. And in addition to our events winning many awards, our co-founders Roisin and Jane were recognised among the top business leaders in Ireland for their success in building an international business at the EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

In keeping with the Entrepreneur of the Year awards theme, some of the Cogs & Marvel team took to the camera to explain who we are and what we do. In an interview with C&IT magazine, our Head of Sales and Marketing Daniel talked about the intent behind creating the video:

“For ten years we built up a sterling reputation as a traditional event management agency; in the wake of our rebrand last year, making this video was a chance to showcase the kind of company we are now. The last year has been about getting our heads down and producing some really impactful work for our clients. Now, a year on, we’re lifting our heads up a bit and getting that message about the rebrand out there. We’re looking to shake up the industry – which shaped the intent behind the video. Other companies might choose to promote themselves in a more traditional way but we don’t mind having a pop at ourselves. It was a lighthearted way of getting across a strategic message.”


At Cogs & Marvel, we believe that every time you get a group of people together, whether they be staff, customers, partners or consumers, you have an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with you. You have an opportunity to turn passive admirers into an army of advocates for your corporate brand.
