“Winning Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh 2012 has been fantastic for EmployAbility Service Galway. On the night we were just so proud to be chosen when we felt the standard of the competitors was so high. The publicity campaign that followed was brilliant for marketing and PR, and was handled really well by Gaillimh le Gaeilge. We feel that the generous sponsorship will allow us to dramatically transform our image, market our service more professionally and increase the number of successful job placements for our clients going forward. It will also help us develop some of our current projects and ideas, and will allow us to develop our marketing skills as a team, and our marketing strategy as an organisation. We feel that our commitment to the language as a team was recognised, and that the judges understood that our interest is for the long term.”
