How helped to shape the future of our  organisations.

The King's Hospital - Post Primary School, Dublin, Ireland

Paul Rolston, through his company, has provided marketing and development services to The King's Hospital over a number of years. His knowledge of the education sector is excellent and his commitment to the school was wholehearted.

He was a key member of the fund raising team 2005/2010 that delivered >80% of a stretching capital fund targeting €6 million.

He was very much focused on results and has an excellent understanding of the needs of both the parents and the pupils and was extremely conscientious in everything he did. Using his network of contacts in education and other spheres Paul's work halted and reversed falling boarders numbers at the school.

Paul has been a driving force with the school's Past Pupils' Union in their move to social media which has delivered increased interaction including a direct survey of alumni requirements that achieved a response rate >65% of those surveyed from a database of over 3,000 past pupils.

Monasteroris National School, Co. Offaly, Ireland

With the experience and knowledge gained as a leader in local business, Paul has been an invaluable asset to our school when we have called on him and his company.

Paul’s understanding of people and his ability to inspire and work with those around him generates a positivity and desire to achieve which, together with his pragmatic reasoning, enables the delivery of ambitious visions.

Our school has recently completed a substantial building and development programme which doubled the size of our school and added substantial classroom, sports, performance arts and extra-curricular space to our buildings.

Paul was a main driver and overseer throughout this project from conception to final completion. 

His knowledge and assistance through planning, finance and construction was thorough and ensured the successful completion of our wonderful new facilities within budget and on time.
