About the speakers

  • Katre Kõvask - "During the past 20+ years, it has been my privilege to build, turn around, merge, and sustain brands and companies. Mainly in the food sector, but also has some experience with pharmacies, on-board catering, international franchises, and duty-free business. I have been busy with innovation, revolution, and evolution while gathering experiences that might be funny and educating and have brought change and some good memories. Some wins, many losses, and maybe there’s something to learn about. All in all, definitely still far away from a great work life- private life balance, and unsure whether there must be a line between those two. So, putting it all together, let's have a chat and some fun, too!"
