Each Thursday as part of the Entertainment for Business Daily News Digest we will publish the story of a young talent within the commercial environment around the entertainment sector in Ireland.

It’s a way of identifying and applauding those who are making a difference and who have the potential to lead the industry in years to come.


Shane Gillen and Greg O’Donoghue, Big & Bright



Shane Gillen and Greg O’Donoghue established Big&Bright as a talent agency in 2017 and have shown their mettle in the commercial world on behalf of a growing roster of talent.

A deal with Universal Music Group for Chasing Abbey really put them on the map and they now offer both personal and business management to an expanding range of acts and personalities.

They got a boost in the early stages with Blizzards frontman Bressie coming on board as an adviser but it is the hard work and ‘always on’ engagement by Shane and Greg that prompted their nomination as one of our Rising Stars.

Shane is a graduate of IADT in Dun Laoghaire while Greg studied at the National College of Ireland where he hones his negotiating skills as Vice President of the Students Union.  He also spent a year at Edelman giving a good grounding in public relations.
