From the moment I expressed my interest in transitioning to HR, Christy consistently demonstrated his commitment to helping me achieve my goals. Christy’s extensive HR knowledge and empathetic approach have made him an exceptional Coach/Mentor. He willingly shared resources, industry insights, and real-world examples, ensuring my smooth transition into HR. Beyond his expertise, Christy’s personal qualities, such as approachability and genuine care, created a trusting and supportive environment. I felt comfortable reaching out to him with questions, knowing I would receive valuable insights.

In conclusion, I highly recommend Christy O’Hara as a Coach or Mentor. His commitment, knowledge, and passion for helping others make him an outstanding resource”.

Jonny Cooper – 7 times All Ireland GAA Football Medalist with Dublin and 2 All Star GAA Awards

“I have worked with Christy for the past number of years where he has supported me across a number of areas including maximising performance potential. I have found a number of benefits to our ongoing relationship such as an heightened sense of clarity towards my ambitions, the exploration of additional personal development opportunities and developing my network of knowledge to enhance career opportunities. I very much look forward to each of our sessions together”

Eric Donovan – Professional EU and Irish Boxing Champion

“I’ve known Christy for the past 2 years. A connection was made after a TV interview I had done which Christy had seen and over that two year period, we have spoken and met many times. During that particular interview, I spoke about life & sport (boxing) and that I was coming near the end of my professional boxing career. This can be a daunting and uncertain time for any professional full-time athlete. But thankfully after a few conversations with Christy about the different options and possibilities that might be available to me, things didn’t look so bad. Christy has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area, his great coaching ability can identify your qualities & strengths and suggest where best they can serve you.I cannot recommend Christy’s services enough, a very kind and knowledgeable man with a calm, reassuring presence”
