Five Minute Focus: Alison Desmond – Velocity Growth
Tell us about yourself
My name is Alison Desmond, and I am a Digital Marketing Specialist with Velocity Growth, based in Cork. I’m 26 years old, and while I originally grew up in the outskirts of Cork, I recently made the move to the City Centre and have been loving the lively atmosphere here.
As a marketer, I’m truly passionate about working with businesses in a strategic and creative way. I believe that with the right approach, any business can make a big impact and achieve their goals. In addition to my love for marketing, I’m also very passionate about supporting women in business. That’s why I’m honored to be a part of The Club Women’s Network, where I sit on the Membership Committee.
When I’m not busy with work or networking, I like to unwind by spending time with my friends and family. One of my favorite ways to do that is by grabbing a coffee and exploring Cork City. And when I need to recharge my batteries, I love taking a few days off to explore new places. In fact, I recently came back from a wonderful trip to the Algarve!
If you’d like to connect with me, you can find me on LinkedIn and Twitter under the handle @alisonmdesmond.

What do you like about being a Glandore Member?
I’m thrilled to have joined the Glandore community in March! As a fully remote company at Velocity Growth, it’s wonderful to have a physical space to come into every morning. Donna and Alice have been incredibly welcoming since my first day, and it’s been fantastic to connect with like-minded individuals. Attending the events hosted by Glandore has also been a highlight, providing opportunities to socialize and network with other members.
Saturday nights in or Saturday nights out?
I personally prefer spending a night with friends. There’s something incredibly satisfying about unwinding on a Saturday evening, catching up with each other over a movie and pizza. It’s the simple things!
