Enterprise Ireland was also a key supporter of the Workvivo launch and had to be kept engaged and informed at every step of the process.


Springboard positioned Workvivo as disruptors – an Irish company creating a service that would have an impact globally.

Following an in-depth strategy session with CEO John Goulding, Springboard delivered a comprehensive communications strategy detailing Workvivo’s key messages and brand narrative along with recommended actions and activities across Workvivo’s owned, earned and paid channels.

For the media campaign, we drafted a press release to incorporate Workvivo’s messaging and include quotes from Enterprise Ireland’s ICT Manager of its High Potential Start-up unit. We then carried out a strategic media campaign hitting their key audiences.


  • Springboard secured coverage for Workvivo in national media including the Business Post and the Irish Examiner
  • Trade and online coverage was secured in outlets such as and Business World
  • Follow up thought-leadership interviews and guest articles were secured for John Goulding and Joe Lennon in, Business Plus and Silicon Republic
