Professional Summary

After seeing that many restaurants needed help in catering to vegans, I launched my own business in order to veganize their menus. Vegans Brussels has grown an online audience, organised several successful events, such as restaurant pop-ups and Christmas menus. 

In 2018 I organised Brussels' first Vegan Street Festival gathering more than 10.000 people around amazing vegan food & products, good causes & inspiring talks. It felt like a block party and an animal rights march had a baby! 

Now, I want to use my experience and knowledge to guide other brave vegans in launching or growing their own vegan business & make an impact on the world. My own research and personal development have learned me a lot about what it takes to be successful and how to communicate with vegans and non-vegans effectively. I also believe anything is possible when it is done with positivity, purpose and plenty of ambition!

 

Yes, I studied architecture, not business or marketing. I just happened to have a natural affinity to be a business owner and entrepreneur and constantly learn more about business. As a daughter of a fashion designer and a copywriter, I guess it's in my (apple bottom) genes!

I enjoy brainstorming on new business ideas, create a vision and branding and set out the right communication strategies to sell your story to the world!

Interests

I am an absolute geek when it comes to personal development. I am constantly learning from new coaches, attending seminaries & reading self-help books. I  like to read horoscopes (I'm a Libra!) & not a day goes by that I don't move my body by shaking my ass to my favourite music or doing yoga, pilates or some other kind of challenging work-out.  On top of that, I travel often to indulge in local vegan gastronomy. You can always call me for a cocktail & a party!
