Your customer’s experiences impact your bottom line.

The successful training, up-skilling and growth and development of employees is crucial to business growth and success.

Upon returning from the US I felt a deep frustration at the lack of customer service in Ireland and the negative impact this has on businesses. Deciding to do something positive about it resulted in the launch of Griffin Solutions International in 2014.

With a diverse portfolio of multi-sector clients, we improve employee engagement, refresh and upskill individuals to improve customer experiences that impact the business bottom line.

We consistently achieve proven results and provide an excellent return on investment for all stakeholders. 

By collaborating with management and stakeholders we discover individual training needs and design training accordingly to increase employee engagement, customer satisfaction and profits.


Taking an innovative and holistic approach to training has proven extremely effective with clients reporting an increase in employee engagement, skills, customer satisfaction and up to 25% increase in sales post-training.

Mystery Evaluations pre-training identify gaps/weaknesses and assist in designing targeted training.

Post-training Mystery Evaluations are recommended to evaluate and monitor effectiveness, maintain consistency and keep your people motivated to perform at their best.

With a passion for helping people and businesses succeed, I thrive on helping individuals and businesses achieve higher levels of performance, growth and success.
