We sell a packet of Moxie product every thirty seconds. Curious yet?

With the crazy idea to put tampons in recyclable tins so that they would stop rolling around in my handbag, my business partner and I took on a stagnant, mature FMCG category dominated by large multi-nationals, and launched a true makret disruptor.

For the last (almost!) 14 years, I’ve seen our Moxie brand of women’s personal care through every step of its life cycle, from conceptualisation right through to commercialisation and have sunk my teeth into anything from packaging and product design, to ad campaign development to customer relationship management with some of the world’s biggest retailers. I understand every element of what it takes to not only bring a brand to life, but to insulate it from tough competition and secure it for future business growth and success.

Moxie products have sold millions upon millions of products in various markets around the world; I’ve made a heap of bad decisions and mistakes, but just as many good ones, too. I’ve done it for myself and I can help you do it, too (the good stuff, that is!).

- What it takes to build a brand from scratch

Mia was an amazing Top Expert to speak to. Down to earth, and also full of practical tips, I felt comfortable speaking with her about various queries I had regarding consumer retail, scaling and global expansion. She also put me in touch with a valuable connection, which I could not have been able to do myself. Thank you again Mia!
