God and Guinness

It’s St Patrick’s Day, so I felt this video deserved a repost…

In 2012 I was involved in running an event called the Everything Conference, which happened to fall on 17 March and featured a member of the Guinness family as our keynote speaker. It was too good an opportunity to pass up!

This short film, originally shown at the conference, tells the story of the Guinness family and the impact they made, not only in Dublin, but across the world. It’s the story of many different people using their passions and talents to make a difference in society in some unexpected ways.

If you can tolerate watching a rain-drenched, illness-beleaguered version of me for eight minutes, I hope you will enjoy it!
