Ad_Man Creative Marketing, Northern Ireland

About Ad_Man Creative Marketing

Hello there – I’m Damian Donnelly, Principal at Ad_Man Creative Marketing Insight & Strategy, a marketing consultancy based in lovely Belfast.

I’m an award-winning advertising, marketing, digital marketing and social media consultant, trainer, mentor and speaker with some 28 years’ experience (hey, I started very young!).

During this time, I’ve worked with everybody from senior government officials and marketing managers for international brands, to owners of start-ups and micro-businesses… and everybody in between.


And there are few marketing and communications challenges I haven’t seen and helped provide solutions for over the years. I’ve been told many times that I’m really good at getting to the heart of a problem to unlock the insights from which practical, measurable, and sustainable difference-making solutions can be developed.

Perhaps most important of all, I can help you enjoy your business! I’ve been described as a “breath of fresh air” and the quality of my work and thinking has been referred to as “addictive”.

And some reassurance bits...

  • I hold a Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Diploma in Digital Marketing.

  • I'm an Enterprise Northern Ireland Premier Adviser. 

  • I was NI Regional Winner for the National Examination Board in Supervisory Management Certificate.

  • I'm an associate tutor and trainer for Belfast Academy of Marketing, delivering training and workshops on copywriting, search engine optimisation (SEO), digital marketing planning, content marketing, social media, and web and social media analytics.

  • I'm a Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) approved tutor.

  • I'm an InterTradeIreland approved digital marketing consultant.
  • I'm a regular panel member on Springboard, a pro-bono accelerator programme 'that provides tough love for high growth potential innovation companies'.
So, no matter what your organisation or business does or what size it is; no matter what your advertising, marketing or communications challenge might be, I can help.
