To Whom It May Concern:

I have been asked by Ms Tara O'Connell to provide a reference as to her work as directly employed by the VIVA Group of Companies over the past 10 years and as an ongoing Design Consultant to the present day.

Frankly to present a reference worthy of Tara's work and key involvement in my businesses over this entire period, is simply impossible upon a single page, I am therefore available personally and more than happy, to answer any specific questions or talk in greater detail should this be required.

However in brief; I can clearly state, that Tara's influence, design, commitment, team leadership and truly outstanding creative work was absolutely integral to the success and performance of not just one, but more than half a dozen brands and businesses in which I have owned or managed in her time with us.

My businesses have turned over at their peak some 50 million euros per annum, we at our peak employed some 400 individuals, all of our businesses were based upon response and high lead generation requirements from multiple sources and media, which hopefully indicates the very nature of Tara's work.

I have said I do not have the space here to justify that detail, however I can say, that having employed in total over 1,500 people in my time, Tara would be in the top five in terms of delivery, performance and in being so vital as to be indispensable.

Today, we do not have a full time role for someone of Tara's talent, being far less driven, far smaller in size and in a much reduced market, we are however indebted to her still and I would certainly offer the most exemplary reference that I have ever been asked for.

Sincerely

Chris McCarthy
