DAR­REN KENNEDY TV pre­sen­ter

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - STYLE NOTEBOOK -

Each new phase comes with dif­fer­ent break­through mo­ments. One of the ear­li­est ones in my ca­reer was get­ting a re­port­ing job along­side the late, great Gerry Ryan on his 2FM show and on

Gerry was in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous to me and it’s where I cut my teeth in broad­cast­ing in many re­spects. It also gave me the con­fi­dence to look to new mar­kets. My first UK gig was pre­sent­ing a new 13-part se­ries

for the BBC, which was a fan­tas­tic in­tro­duc­tion to a new au­di­ence.

An­other ca­reer turn­ing point was ven­tur­ing into the world of de­sign. It’s in­vig­o­rat­ing to be work­ing and learn­ing from mega brands such as Spec­savers.

I think the real break­through for me was re­al­is­ing it’s not just about ‘the desti­na­tion’ but en­joy­ing the jour­ney.

The new ‘Dar­ren Kennedy Rec­om­mends’ col­lec­tion lands in Spec­savers na­tion­wide this month. See spec­savers.ie/dar­ren-kennedy
