Customer Stories: Uni-Learning

November 12th 2018

Uni-Learning is an accredited training provider delivering industry leading fitness courses through face-to-face tuition, blended and online courses. We spoke to Conor O’Hagan about his current and future projects, his thoughts on Innovation Factory and his involvement in social integration activity

 

How did you start your company?

I initially joined Uni-Learning on a University work placement to gain greater knowledge and insights in to the fitness industry. When the original owners’ circumstances changed I and another colleague were presented with the chance to buy the company. We grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

What are you currently working on?

While continuing to build our reputation as a provider of courses in fitness, we are currently working on branching into different sectors, including developing our range of online courses and delivering courses to school children in local schools.

What do you like about Innovation Factory?

I like the support that is available from the staff, particularly around improving skills through the masterclasses on offer.

What are your ambitions and projects for the future?

Uni-learning’s main ambition for the future is to spread geographically. I want to spread south and establish a market in the Republic of Ireland. I also have ambitions to spread into Great Britain to further expand the business.

How have you been involved in the social integration of Innovation Factory?

In terms of social integration Uni-learning has delivered its courses to the students of local schools. We also target and offer our courses to those who are unemployed to enable them to follow a career in the fitness industry.
