2019: Marketing consultancy 
- getting started with Google Ads & Facebook campaigns

Astan avulla olen saanut työlleni näkyvyyttä ja ennen kaikkea uusia asiakkaita! Aion jatkossakin kääntyä Astan puoleen asioissa, joissa omat taitoni ja aikani ei riitä! Astalla riittää ideoita ja kun yksin tekee, niin todella ihanaa, kun on ”toiset aivot” välillä kaverina. - Ulla Hirvas

Before Lavli Business - The precious "learning experience" on my journey towards entrepreneurship:

Comtiki Oy - Flightplan 

This is a perfect example of how far I go out my comfort zone to conquer a challenging case (Australia as a location was pretty big plus too 😎). 

01/2009 – 05/2010
Country Director, Australia & New Zealand

Launching Flightplan software to Australian and New Zealand Helicopter operator markets from scratch. I was a one-woman organisation, taking care of all marketing and sales activities; from market research to exhibitions, customer meetings to closing deals and finally to software implementation. I reported to the CEO.

  • Within one year I succeeded to get pilot customers in both Australian and NZ markets.
  • I was also producing Comtiki’s marketing materials and supporting Flightplan software to meet Australian requirements.

    BTW because of this work project, while living in Australia, I found Lorna Jane activewear brand and eventually got the courage to start my own business.
