Tell us something interesting or unusual about yourself.
Croatian born, but made in Ireland :-) My education included Degree in German and English linguistics and literature, Masters in Business and Tourism and am now doing Business sustainability course from University of Cambridge. My work experience includes education sector and the 13 years in the corporate sector, managing business for Ted Baker Ireland. My role included all aspects of retail management and I opened locations in Singapore, Belfast, France, supported EU retail and launched Ted’s business in Germany. I also launched a successful restaurant in Dublin City centre called Platform 61. We have been in business just over 4 years. With this business I saw an opportunity for eco friendly products. Platform 61 was the first restaurant in Dublin to ban plastic straws in 2015, followed by complete ban on single use take away cups. We went from researching and sourcing eco friendly and conscious alternatives to developing our own brand of eco friendly products called Edamame.
