Who We Are

  • Upwelling is led by Eoin Cannon. His focus is on understanding individuals, teams and their contexts more deeply to find better ways of working, and deliver real world business results. He supports organisations to adapt through coaching, training and consulting.

    Eoin is a former senior marketing executive for large multi-nationals, and moved into developing and delivering learning global programs for senior commercial leaders. His curiosity and experience in understanding consumer motivation led him to coaching, Design Thinking, and behavioural psychology, which underpin his work as an Agile Coach.

    Eoin is a qualified Scrum master, IC Agile Coach and AgileHR trainer and practicing business coach. He’s lived and worked across Europe, and now lives in The Hague with his family, and is learning Dutch, but slowly.

    ‘Getting projects moving in large companies is hard and getting harder. Detailed project plans become obsolete quickly in the complex, sometimes chaotic business environment. Many employees are overwhelmed and dissatisfied. We need better ways of working to navigate progress and improve the employee experience.’

    The name Upwelling comes from deep sea ocean currents that bring rich nutrients to the surface. The right resources can do the same for us – bring up rich insights and strengths we were unaware of to help us thrive.

    Companies and leaders he has helped to become more agile include Sky, Asahi brewing, Britvic soft drinks, Zurich Insurance and Egis construction and engineering. Eoin regularly gives talks on using marketing and psychology to improve influence and effectiveness.
