Venture Business Network

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people”

Steve Jobs, Apple

Venture Management Team

Shay Cahill is acknowledged as a leading expert in the art and science of professional business networking. Venture is the place where he has crafted, developed and refined the best way in which to accelerate the growth of mutually beneficial professional relationships: accelerating opportunities to build trust, connections and better business results. For over twenty-five years Shay has been involved in many sectors within the corporate world, including finance, IT, telecoms and customer services.

Shay believes that the ultimate key to success in business is similar to planning an epic journey. The secret is to surround yourself with like-minded people who have the right attitude, skills and commitment to focus on a common interest, outcome or destination.

Outside of the world of business and networking, Shay is passionate about meeting his next challenge, whether it is maintaining peak fitness, exploring a new country or climbing the next mountain.

Whether it is business, travel or adventure, the triumph and pleasure is not just in the preparation for the journey, or advancing through the milestones to success, it is in the voyage itself.

The one certainty that Shay knows about both business ownership and adventure travel is that they can both be difficult, risky and lonely to attempt solo. We are more efficient, more effective and more likely to be successful with a well-prepared map, access to the appropriate skills & tools, and a strong reliable support team guiding you along the way to your summit.

The next challenge awaits.
Our management team is made up of longstanding members of our business community.
