Victor Branagan (M.Sc. M.B.S.) is the Principal of SustainEd and has extensive experience in business with particular emphasis on social and environmental sectors. He is a Training Partner with Climate KIC – the largest public private partnership in the EU working towards a low carbon society. He works with the award winning Irish energy NGO – Donate As You Save Energy (DaysE) – and is a Board member of Global Action Plan International.
He describes himself as a ‘maven’ – which is a term that means information sharer and information giver – and this is who he is and not just what he does. His coaching style is one of being an ally for those seeking to grow into the opportunities that a sustainable future holds.
He has international training experience over the past twenty years with organisations such as Green Building Councils, international development agencies, universities and others. Previously, he worked as the Director of the Green Business School within Green Works, a large government funded programme that delivered courses on sustainability to those looking to up-skill to meet the emerging green economy. He has worked as a consultant, business advisor, mentor, facilitator in countless businesses in all sectors of the economy.
Victor has twenty years of experience in education and training and combines this with his interests in entrepreneurship and sustainability, to develop new programmes for a sustainable future. He links diverse partners and ideas into innovative and imaginative programmes that can really enrich the learning experiences for participants.
Victor holds a Masters in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola, Sweden and a Masters degree in Entrepreneurship Management from the University of Limerick. He is the developer and deliverer of the Sustainable Business module on the International Business degree programme in the Irish American University, the only such module in the country. He enjoys making all sorts of things down on the small farm he owns in County Kilkenny and when in Dublin he enjoys dancing his socks off with the Dublin Dance Co-op, a group of conscious dance enthusiasts.
