Dublin-based High Calibre Collective to feature on Ireland AM as part of Virgin Media #BackingBusiness campaign

#BackingBusiness continues to promote companies from all industries across Ireland


Friday 25th September: Dublin-based business High Calibre Collective has been announced as the latest company to feature as part of Virgin Media’s #BackingBusiness campaign. A learning and development platform, High Calibre Collective offers employees access to a growing number of hand-picked experts across mental health, performance and wellbeing.


Founded by former Irish professional tennis player, and Guinness World Record holder, James Cluskey, High Calibre Collective faced the challenges of COVID-19 by moving the business online and supporting employees as they work remotely.


With a strong track record of building relationships and inspiring people to perform at their best, James’ passion for surrounding himself with those who inspire him has seen him collaborate with many business and entrepreneurial leaders, including coaching Sir. Richard Branson and his esteemed Necker island guests.


Speaking about the opportunity, James had this to say: “I’m delighted to be a part of Virgin Media’s Backing Business campaign and grateful for the opportunity to showcase my business.


“COVID-19 has and is challenging for everyone. However, there is also opportunity and it has given me the time to finish writing my book ‘Advantage’, pivot my business and execute an idea I had a few years ago. High Calibre Collective is a learning and development platform which gives autonomy to employees and supports them in this new normal.


“Companies give employees credits and they can use these credits to arrange either one to one sessions or sign up for webinars with executive coaches, nutritionists, councillors, breathing coaches, yoga and financial coaching.”


Viewers can look forward to hearing how James and the team at High Calibre Collective help to empower individuals to enhance their performance in all aspects on their lives on Ireland AM this Saturday, September 26th.

Many challenges remain for Irish businesses across the nation as they reopen their doors and we want to continue to help them get back on their feet.
