On Saturday, D4H Technologies hosted an outside broadcast of “The Business” on RTE Radio 1. Broadcast live from our offices in the lighthouse, the show is a weekly look at the world of business and personal finance with Richard Curran from Dragons Den.
Have a listen, especially to the first 10 minutes, where D4H Technologies Founder and CEO Robin Blandford gives a guided tour around the office, and explains the culture, mission, and solutions of D4H Technologies. He is joined on the walk up the tower by Brendan from Irish Lights who gives the history of their 200 year-old lighthouse office.

Later in the show (see last 15 minutes), D4H Sales Manager, Marc Healy, tests out some “new mindfulness” techniques given to him by the producers live on-air with D4H’s Robert Charles and John Brett who take to coloring books and naps to de-stress in the office.
Later in the show, we’re joined by John Teeling which is a fascinating listen. John has the distinction of setting up more listed companies on a stock exchange than any other Irishman, as founder, director or chairman of Connemara Mining, Petrel Resources, Minco, African Gold, Persian Gold, West African Diamonds, Botswana Diamonds, Kenmare Resources, and Arcon.

Finally, the show was played out by The Firm, a corporate event band who have played for many of the multi-nationals here in Dublin “It’s Business, It’s Business Time.”. Enjoy the show, it’s well worth the listen.
Below are some images from the 2 days it took for the pre-record and live broadcast sections with the broadcast van up at the office. All very impressive, and a great day to be involved in.
