About

Brendan Murphy

I am a trainer and executive coach who is passionate about all forms of learning.

My distinctiveness as a coach is centered on my ability to rapidly build trust; to understand and then articulate the issues and the options for success. I am known for my support, my positive and challenging approach, and my ability to help people through personal and professional transitions. I build self-awareness in my clients and this awareness leads to natural and lasting change.  Prior to coaching, I worked for 17 years in the voluntary sector. I managed homeless projects including emergency hostels, night shelters as well as a variety of high-support housing projects. There, I continually focused on creating learning opportunities which helped my teams to expand their skills and people in our projects to break the cycle of homelessness.

Creating Positive Change
As a coach, I work with leaders who want positive change. Change in their personal lives and change in their impact and effectiveness at work. I create space in coaching where you can think out loud. I facilitate, support, and challenge you to achieve your goals. Since setting up BMC Services in 2018 I have worked widely across the voluntary, public and private sectors. I coach on behalf of KPMG, and am a coach tutor on the UCD Smurfit graduate coaching programme. I also work as an associate for a range of training and consultancy firms.
