The golden girls
Well not quite golden just yet... Good as Gold was established back in 2015 by founders; Danielle O'Connell and Lauren Higgs. The two came together over a passion for excellent client relationships, transparency and creativity. They have spent the past number of years working with a wide range of clients in all sorts of industries - from fashion and beauty to food and venues. In 2016, Good as Gold were listed in the Sunday Business Post’s top 100 start-ups and over the past two years, have worked with a range of upcoming and exciting Irish businesses. In Sept 2017, Higgs and O’Connell co-hosted the first Founder Friday in their native Greystones, a monthly initiative sponsored by Bank of Ireland, where they live audience interview industry leaders and entrepreneurs.
