OUR PANELISTS

SONIA DEASY
Co-founder, Pestle & Mortar

Sonia started her career in business by running the family shop in Newbridge, which specialised in branded goods. Managing the store with a staff of sixteen people at only twenty years of age gave Sonia the opportunity to develop an incredible work ethic.

Years later, as a busy mother of five, Sonia noticed a gap in the market for a simple, effective skincare routine she could rely on. She worked alongside her sisters and together they developed a formula following a less-is-more approach, favouring the natural look free from harsh chemicals.

Sonia named the business Pestle & Mortar as it reflects her own motivations, namely simplicity, natural solutions and a less-is-more philosophy.

Catherine Buggy
Founder, Boutique Bake

Catherine Buggy is a 29-year-old entrepreneur from Clonskeagh. She set up her food business Boutique Bake in the summer of 2013, retailing a range of delicious baking mixes for those of us who are short on time!

Catherine worked in HR for 3 years before taking the plunge and following her true passion – food and baking! Taking the leap in 2013 she founded Boutique Bake from her kitchen table and 2 months later, left her safe, secure job and started working full-time on her dream.

Boutique Bake is now stocked in almost 300 stores around Ireland including SuperValue, Dunnes Stores and Tesco. Boutique Bake is also available in the UK, Germany, Australia and the US.

Catherine is currently working on growing her food blog www.catherinebuggy.com.
