The main players

Roger Overall
Creative Director


I've been helping people tell their stories and share their knowledge for over 20 years—in words, images and audio.

I'm the lead on all of our projects—the person you'll deal with from start to finish. It's my job to make sure that what you want to say is translated into content that is useful and appealing.

I've worked on communications and marketing projects for clients around the world, including Vodafone, Fortune magazine, The London P&I Club, SuperValu, Glanbia, Java Republic, ExxonMobil, EMC, the Danish Board of Technology, the University of Liege, Laya Life and Laya Healthcare.

I'm also co-founder and co-host of Business Jazz, a podcast that helps businesses be attractive and tell their story effectively.

Anne O'Leary
Editorial Director


[Note: Anne is very modest. When asked to write her bio, she wrote, "I put words in right order the". Even in the right order, that doesn't do her justice. So, Roger wrote what follows]

Anne is a hugely experienced editor and sub-editor.

Over the past 25 years, she has worked extensively in the newspaper and magazine industry in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands.

Anne writes fiction too. Her short stories have been published in literary journals and newspapers, and broadcast online.

Anne is Show & Tell's guardian of the dictionary and slayer of ambiguity. She brings clarity and elegance to our work.

She makes sure your audience gets your message.

Together, we are the creative driving force behind everything Show & Tell does.

But we're not alone

To help us deliver the best messages and content for our clients, we draw on the talents of many independent creatives. Each one is exceptionally good at what they do: animators, sound engineers, writers, voiceover artists... to name only a few.

We want to mention two people in particular.

Paul O'Mahony is a writer, a poet and an audio broadcaster. He is a master of many social media platforms and adores the spoken word. He engages easily and brings people out of their shell. You won't be a stranger for long in his company. Paul is co-founder and co-host of Business Jazz.

Mark Cotton is a sound engineer and musician whose talents are boundless. At least, we haven't found their limits yet. He has provided audio and musical support for our podcasts and videos for years. He is also the producer of Business Jazz.


What we stand for

What we stand for

When we set up Show & Tell, we had a few guiding principles. We wanted a business we could be proud of. One that helped others achieve their goals.

If they appeal to you, you're probably the kind of person who'd enjoy working with us.

Show & Tell is straightforward and easy to deal with. Clarity is our lifeblood.

We like to establish long-term relationships based on respect.

We enjoy working with people who are building a better world. They enable us to do our very best work. 

We want to take you and your audience to surprising places.

We strive to be remembered. We want you and your message to be, too.

This is what we believe:

  • Strong relationships are built on strong communication.
  • Strong communication is based on integrity and openness.
  • Gluey, sticky communication should be empowering, enlightening and entertaining.
