The Maryborough Team has worked with Sandra since 2008 and her deep knowledge of the hotel industry has proved invaluable since the partnership began. Our journey through recessionary times, hotel expansion, redevelopment and various milestones along the way was made easier with the professionalism and advice of Sandra. A great “go to” person to bounce ideas off, honest and reliable – we’d highly recommend Sandra, one of the industry’s true gems!

I have had the pleasure of working with Sandra on a number of projects over the years. What impresses me most about Sandra is her no nonsense approach to the task at hand. She has a relentless drive which is derived from her passion for what she does. Sandra gives 100% and beyond to everything she takes on, she has a unique knack of looking at different ways of doing things. Most definitely one of Sandra’s greatest strengths is getting the job done. I wish Sandra well with Maybury Marketing. Annette O’Donovan, General Manager, Westlodge Hotel, Bantry.
Sandra has worked with our store for a number of years now helping us develop and market new offerings and initiatives for our customers. Sandra’s input to the launch of our in house bakery and hand made meals ‘Healy’s Kitchen’ has been invaluable. Her enthusiasm and attention to detail has helped us considerably in our objectives and I’d highly recommend her to any business looking for extra support in marketing.Andrew Healy, Healy’s SuperValu, Dunmanway

I’ve worked with Sandra at different levels in the hospitality sector over the years and have watched her grow and develop her business in accordance with the requirements of this ever changing industry.
Sandra had faced every challenging time head on and adapted her business to suit the requirements of both the Industry and the customer. She gives 100% commitment in everything she does and one of her most endearing qualities is she doesn’t stand still, learning and looking down new avenues to grow and develop comes naturally to her, something that is so very important in the world of marketing. Sandra has the drive and energy to succeed in her own business and the businesses she works with.
I wish Sandra every success in her new venture. Eimear O’Leary, Revenue Manager, Imperial Hotel
I have worked with Sandra for a number of years now and whether she is working on publicity for a client, or as a member of an organisation, or simply being the brains behind some big event, she has always impressed me with her excellent organisational skills and her unwavering calm and confidence. Whether an event is a small local outing, or a major multi-layered project, she injects the same sense of enthusiasm and energy, and of course, total efficiency, into each one. She understands how the media works, and is always available to answer questions or organise additional information at short notice. Siobhan Cronin, news editor, Southern Star
I first met Sandra in the autumn of 2017. An idea of running a Strictly Bantry fundraiser was on my mind after watching my brother take part in a similar event in Killarney. The idea was there, the need for a fundraiser for St. Finbarr’s NS necessary and willing dancers recruited. The appetite for the event amongst the locals was fantastic and supportive. What was missing at this stage was a coordinator. Someone to help give the event the air needed to take flight. Someone to press the right buttons and get the nitty gritty behind the scenes work done. Vital work done. This person was Sandra. A final and important member of what became a huge event. Strictly Bantry has now become an annual event and 6 shows have been produced and the story continues with Sandra as an outstanding coordinator. Brian Gleeson, School Principal, St. Finbarr's Boys' National School, Bantry
On Mentoring ...
Mentoring with Sandra was one of the best thing to happen to me during the most difficult time in my career due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. I simply cannot recommend Sandra enough! She is absolutely incredible! She is so experienced and passionate in what she does and most importantly, she truly cares to help you and always gives her best in order to find the best possible solutions for your business. I never came across somebody like Sandra. She is a true inspiration. She helped me so much in putting the right focus on the most important things in my business. I would highly recommend working with Sandra. Thea, Dublin
