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.

A deep network of talented people
Finally a true Entrepreneurs Club has arrived in Auckland. A place to meet fellow entrepreneurs and CEOs, have some fun, be inspired, share, learn and make money in a trusted environment.
I have been fortunate to be invited to a number of The Common Entrepreneur Dinners co-hosted by Debra.
She has created a fantastic atmosphere and deep network of talented people.
Do your strategic thinking!
The Common is a great place for me as an Entrepreneur to gather my thoughts and do that strategic thinking in an uplifting environment and free from day to day business distraction.
High-quality professional setting combined with a casual New York loft vibe
We’ve held several investor events at The Common. The space was ideal with a perfect blend of high-quality professional setting combined with a casual New York loft vibe.
The flexible catering arrangements and helpful event staff meant that we could make each event unique. Highly recommended.
Work ON your business
The Common is the perfect place to work ON your business with colleagues. The space and facilities are professional but with a funky relaxed vibe that sparks creativity and just a pleasure to work in. I love the zones which cater for all needs whether you are working with a team, need quiet time to focus or to bounce off and collaborate with others. Debra has been an incredibly supportive host and then there are the puppies….. just a wonderful place to nurture and grow people and business 🙂
