About the event

We’re delighted to share that the recent Rockwell Insights Series breakfast briefing, “From Local to Global, Growing your business,” was a great success. Hosted at 1 Windmill Lane, Dublin 2, on Tuesday, March 12th, the event featured guest speaker Tom Walsh, CEO of Staycity Group.

Attendees had the opportunity to network over breakfast, followed by an engaging panel and Q&A session.

We want to thank everyone who took the time to attend. Be sure to stay tuned for the next Rockwell Insight Series event.

The attendees had the unique opportunity to hear from Tom Walsh, CEO of Staycity Group. Tom shared his inspirational journey of co-founding Staycity with his brother Ger, starting with a single apartment in a former U2 recording studio in Temple Bar.

Staycity, headquartered in the heart of Dublin 8, has successfully evolved from a local enterprise to emerge as one of Europe’s premier aparthotel operators, boasting a portfolio of nearly 6,000 apartments across 32 locations.

I worked with Brian Forde on advise and managing my upcoming pension. I had no knowledge my options, what I could do with my non-contributory company pension. Brian arranged Team meetings to explain the options with back up figures and explained so clearly what I could do to personalise the pension to suit my needs. I felt confident to proceed with a solution worked out with me by Brian.

Great experience with Rockwell setting up and subsequently adjusting my pension. Pete was a pleasure to deal with and I found his knowledge and insight very useful.

Conor recently gave me advice on my pension. He gave the best advice I have received from any financial advisor I have been involved with. He explained things in layman's terms so it was easy to understand. I really appreciated this and am delighted to give this feedback.
