With 16 years??experience in the pharmacy sector, Leonora?who worked with the pharmacy regulator in Ireland before setting up Pharmapod? now finds herself wearing many hats as the CEO of a start-up,?from business planning, strategy, finances, relationship building,?product development, sales, marketing and HR.

She will represent Ireland in the?global Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards this year, the first Irish?female entrepreneur to be chosen as a finalist, and the company?is currently preparing for a pilot in both the UK and Canada and?is translating the system into French for the Canadian market.

?Getting great feedback from our customers is the most important’metric I have for defining success and, of course, being happy with’my work is success for me personally.?
