Anne O’Dwyer Featured in Business Post

Anne O’Dwyer, Managing Director in Duff & Phelps Corporate Finance practice in Ireland, was recently featured in Business Post. The article outlines Anne’s career progression, the importance of having a strong work ethic and trusting in your team, and some key learnings from juggling new motherhood and a senior management position. 

Anne commented: “Nothing teaches you time-efficiency like new motherhood, but we can all learn to streamline and focus on adding value.”

Anne mentions in the article that it is important to learn from your mistakes and to appreciate that your strength as a leader lies in your team. Surround yourself with people who complement your strengths and weaknesses.

“Early on in my career, one of my first bosses, Tadhg O’Sullivan at OSK, gave me great opportunities and made sure to challenge me. He took me outside of my comfort zone and I learned many lessons that have stayed with me to this day. I try to take the same approach whenever I can,” she said.
