About Neil Smith:

Settled on an Irish farm after a lifetime of travel. I'm a pretty boring guy who occasionally does some interesting things.

Experience

Blessington, Wicklow Charles Camping Ltd. Improving the Outdoor retail offering at one of the country's largest caravan suppliers. Initially hired for a six month contract to revamp the range of specialist outdoor and hiking products as well as gearing up the service levels. My contract has since been extended.
Dublin Great Outdoors Ltd. Footwear dept. manager and buyer. Responsible for staff training and helped the company ride out the economic crash and build one of the best outdoor footwear specialists anywhere in the business.
Shandwick place, Edinburgh. Specsavers Worked as an experienced dispenser within the Shandwick place practice in Edinburgh’s West End area. Liaising with patients, optometrists, lens technicians and NHS administrators this was a busy and enjoyable role.
I would have been happy to have continued to advance in this area but received an offer to return to Great Outdoors in Dublin and build for the future.
Gyle Centre, Edinburgh Optical Express Ltd Having been professionally involved with feet for more than a quarter of a century I felt like taking on a different challenge and moved all the way up the body to deal with eyes. After starting in a city centre store I was quickly moved out to the Gyle centre clinic; one of the company’s busiest and most profitable stores. I learned fast and thrived in a very challenging environment.
Sales representative Anatom Ltd Employed as a technical sales representative for the distributors of Superfeet insoles and Smartwool socks. Building on my experience of the footwear business and working throughout the medical outdoor and sports areas of the business.
Various Great Outdoors Ltd. Starting in a general customer service role in the Camping department I effectively became the manager of the footwear section. In time this unofficial position was acknowledged and I began ranging and buying as well as training staff and representing the company at trade shows, events and in the media.
Senior Instructor Free Heel Ltd Senior instructor at the place where cross-country skiing and Telemarking began in the UK. Rostered and trained the staff, taught courses and was involved in the import and distribution of specialist Nordic ski and mountain equipment.
