We are thrilled to have the founder and managing director of SleepDrops NZ, Kirsten Taylor who’ll be sharing her story & all she has learnt on her successful journey.

Kirsten believes in sleeping smarter and living better. She launched SleepDrops in the July of 2009.

SleepDrops has experienced fantastic growth and is now in over 900 Pharmacies & health stores throughout New Zealand.

Kirsten’s vision is to transform the planet by supporting people to fall in love with sleep, prioritise sleep and get at least 8 hours of deep sleep.

With the modern business arena now global and being so fiercely competitive, businesses are no longer just performing in a local market.

Brands have to stay alert, be aware of incoming threats and build a strong but flexible company strategy that will protect them from competitors.

In sharing her journey so far Kirsten hopes to empower your business on how to move past the competition and take on the world.

Kirsten and her team develop, test and market sleep supplements and remedies for all sleep challenges, ages and lifestyle stages.

SleepDrops has been the number one selling brand in the sleep category for 6 years and is loved by kids and adults equally.

SleepDrops is uniquely, the only company who globally offers a 24 hour sleep wellness solution.

SleepDrops received the award for the Westpac Auckland Best Emerging Business category and then again in the Westpac Best of the Best for the entire Auckland region.

Since Jan 2013, SleepDrops has been the top selling brand in the sleep category with the number one adults, kids and baby sleep remedies in New Zealand pharmacies.

Recently, she also launched a family value range spray across 3 brands; Countdown, New World and Pak N Save.
