John Doran

Dad of 3, two humans and one dog. Obsessed with tech and am an occasional runner. I take my work seriously but not myself.

Studied Business Computing at DIT( Ireland) and while there got hooked on mobile development on iOS and Android (Windows & BlackBerry 😅). That led me to Mobile Travel Technologies where I grew technically as we created a travel platform and integrated it with some of the world’s best airlines.

Since 2015 I have been building the future of hair and beauty tech, I lead all strategy and execution of technology at Phorest and spend my time working with people, technology and systems to produce business impact.

I am a co-founder of ShipItCon. A non for profit and community-driven Irish tech conference focused on shipping software.
