ABOUT MAGGIE

Maggie_9728_sqr.jpg

My interests are many and varied - I love travel, culture, food and style and I have an affinity for interiors and design. Our family love sports and adventures outside in nature.

My love of food, floristry and tablescaping has lead me to make this the focus of my business.  Recent demand shows that people are happy to outsource their styling, purchasing and researching tasks to me.

Being honest and trustworthy, enthusiastic and friendly, I feel I can offer a professional, polished approach to your needs. I take great pride in the services I offer and what better recommendation could there be other than the words of my existing clients.

HOW DID I GET HERE?

1987

Left my home town of Galway, Ireland to live in Geneva, Switzerland as an Au Pair. This was the most transformative year for me & the beginning of my food journey - I met the most wonderful friends, tasted the most delicious food and enjoyed the most amazing experiences.

1989

Moved to London and became the Office Administrator of a Graphic Design studio in Fulham. This often required me to spend hours in Harrods Food Halls to organise lunches for clients and staff birthdays.

1991

Travelled to Australia via New York, San Francisco, Hawaii and New Zealand. Met my future husband John at The Royal Hotel, Bondi!

1992

Back in London and hustling however I could - I think at this point I was working three jobs. An interview via the Evening Standard at Classic Recruitment saw me walk out of the tube station every day at Green Park right beside The Ritz Hotel.

1996

I branched out on my own running Triple M, an IT recruitment consultancy. This gave me a broad business awareness along with an excellent customer service focus. I was constantly engaging with clients and candidates to develop and nurture honest relationships.

1997

Married John back in Galway, Ireland. A few years on, our beautiful daughters were born, first Hannah and later Ella, both in London.

2002

On Australia Day we arrived back in Sydney to live permanently. We chose the Central Coast to call home and since then I have been involved in various concierge type roles, including starting my own business. A few years later our son Sean was born in Gosford to complete our family.

2018

Creative Concierge by Maggie was born which allowed me to explore my passion for all things food, styling and sharing my skills to enhance my clients' lifestyle. The personal concierge services industry is a rapidly growing business sector in the UK, USA and now Australia. It allows me to offer you a bespoke approach to managing your lifestyle.
