What sort of power do ‘influencers’ really yield?

Adrian sits down with one of the most powerful social media figures in Ireland, who is a wanted man by commercial brands.

James Kavanagh explains what he does, why it works and how he is now earning a multiple of what he did in previous jobs.

Honesty and originality, he says, are key attributes, as well a particularly strong work ethic. He discusses how coming from a family of strongly motivated individuals, including his famous brother (Conor McGregor’s trainer), has influenced his aptitude to graft.

James also talks about why Snapchat — the platform that originally gave him his biggest boost — now appears to be “stagnating” compared to Instagram.
