As one of Ireland’s longest-running communications companies, Carr Communications has become a household brand name for media, public relations, communications, and business / management training and development. Our reputation for handling media crises and preparing people for media has become such that other Public Relations companies bring their clients to our TV and radio studios to help them prepare responses for difficult issues and interviews.
Since the 1970s, the company has rapidly evolved in response to customer need, moving for example, in the early eighties into the production of training and promotional videotapes and TV programmes. At the same time, we set up a Public Relations Division, which now services major indigenous and multinational companies and state bodies.
Our training moved from open programmes (although these continue to be part of what the company offers) to on-going in-depth communications based consultancy with organisations and their management teams. We created a centre of expertise in ‘Management & Business’ training. We gave our Unit this title to denote the fact that the Unit provides a full range of programmes for managers and leaders, all designed to help deliver real business results and outcomes.
We also developed specialist areas such as speech writing, providing dozens of speeches each week for business and political speakers.
