by | Apr 3, 2024 | Latest News, Uncategorised

The Public Eye business podcast, hosted by Director of Bespoke Communications and former BBC news journalist Sarah Travers, is marking its 100th episode.

Sponsored by Granite Legal Services, the podcast aims to inspire existing business owners and ambitious entrepreneurs by offering a unique insight into the success stories of Irish and Northern Irish businesses.

Colleen O’Hare, the proud podcast manager, expresses her joy, stating, “It has been a pleasure meeting all the guests; they have been open and honest when discussing their challenges, and I know their advice has helped others.” Colleen also looks forward to the future, mentioning that they have more amazing guests lined up.

Listeners have had the opportunity to hear real-life stories from business owners across various industries. The podcast featured the talented Donal Farrell, who shared his journey in opening Mourne Dew Distillery. Bi-weekly listeners also gained insights from Jackie Reid, Founder of the award-winning Deli Lites, and David Wilson, Managing Director, who discussed the challenges he faced when opening the beautiful Montalto Estate. Even former Northern Irish star and Olympian Lady Mary Peters made an appearance.

Specialist Group’s Founder, John Bosco O’Hagan, and Managing Director, Ciaran O’Hagan, made their debut on the airwaves as our special guests on the 100th episode. The father-and-son have built a multi-million-pound family business trading globally from their HQ in Maghera and we were delighted they joined us to talk about the highs and lows of their incredible business journey. On being asked about being part of our 100th episode, John Bosco remarked, “It’s been a great experience, and I was honoured to be asked.” Ciaran emphasized the “importance of fostering a sense of business community” within the area.

Looking ahead, The Public Eye podcast promises to continue its journey in inspiring future entrepreneurs. Podcast founder Jonathan McKeown said, “We started this podcast as a pilot in 2020 to showcase the talented business people in our area. Today, the podcast boasts no shortage of talented guests and shows no signs of slowing down.”

Recorded in Granite Podcast Studio, host Sarah Travers notes that the space has contributed to the podcast’s success. “The studio and its dedicated team have created a fantastic space with state-of-the-art equipment that allows guests to feel comfortable. As a host, you get peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of.”

The Public Eye team extends its gratitude to the community they have created, the wonderful biweekly listeners, the amazing guests, and the team that keeps it all going. Listen now on all major streaming platforms.
