philip-16-webbEblana Communications is owned and operated by me, Philip O’Connor, an Irish journalist and communications professional based in Sweden since 1999.

I spent eight fantastic years working for one of the world’s biggest providers of financial services and information to the global markets, but in 2010 I decided it was time for a change, so I started a company to allow me to concentrate on doing the thing I love – telling stories.

Since those humble beginnings, I have created text, movies and images for a wide variety of organisations, from listed companies, news and PR agencies to sports clubs and registered charities.

The portfolio has rapidly expanded to include television production, sports and political journalism and a book about Gaelic football in Stockholm which was nominated for two prestigious awards in Ireland.

Being an Irishman in Scandinavia, I have a somewhat unique position in being able to bridge the geographical and cultural gap. I speak Swedish, I can get by in Norwegian and I read Danish; even though Scandinavians speak better English than most, I find it much easier to get in touch with people in their own language.

The keys to any success I’ve had are hard work and contacts. Together with a tight network of tried and trusted photographers, video journalists, event managers, fixers, sources and entrepreneurs from across the business spectrum, I can put together a team to carry out almost any project you can imagine, anywhere in the world.
