Niamh Creaven-Connaughton

Co-Founder, Araya

Hi, I’m Niamh, Galway native and admin extraordinaire!
I recently returned to Ireland after more than a decade away working in Switzerland.

I left with two bags and returned with a husband, two children, a dog and a wealth of admin and office management experience.
I have studied Book-Keeping, business administration and office management which gives me the ability to help you bring in some balance, keep you on track and free up your time so you can focus on what you’re passionate about.
Having worked in small businesses to large multinationals I have solid experience and a diverse set of skills in a full spectrum of office administration.

With flexible service that you can trust, I can give you my time so that you can do more with yours.

Honoria Mitchell-black

Co-Founder, Araya

Hello. I’m Honoria and subject matter expert on all things marketing, social media, project management and events!
From Ireland, USA, Australia and back home again. But the call of home was strong and after 14 years found me back where I grew up with family in tow.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Business, Postgraduate in Marketing and a First Class Honours Masters in Marketing. After graduating, I put my education to use and worked for two start-ups developing a deep knowledge of business functions. Next adventure found me hitting the skies and travelling down under where I worked across a number of industries and small to large multinationals in all things marketing plus 9 years at Deloitte where I had opportunity to project manage the firms major marketing campaigns.

My passion for business can be traced back to working in the family Construction business from an early age – across administration, accounts, and payroll etc.
