Pat Kane was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, surrounded by the sun and the ocean. Now living in Dublin with her husband and two boys, Pat believes that being happy involves being healthy (body & mind!) and wholeheartedly embracing the world we all share... and having a great time while doing it.
Before starting her entrepreneurial journey, Pat held various executive positions in the corporate world. She was a senior executive at Digicel in the Caribbean and Central America as well as the Director of Customer Experience at Flutter Entertainment. In response to her own experience of trying to reduce and minimize her family's waste, she founded reuizi in 2018. reuizi sources and curates sustainable products to enhance the lives of our customers in an environmentally-sound way and exists in both the real and virtual worlds, with pop-ups, some very exciting in-store concessions and a busy online presence.
Pat now consults with organisations from family businesses to SME's to large corporations, on how to improve their green credentials. Her voice, both vocal and written, will be a familiar one to consumers of Irish media.
She regularly delivers talks on SUSTAINABILITY, covering its common definitions, the status quo in Ireland, ways one can contribute to a better planet. She touches on common subjects such as recycling & composting and why businesses should get involved. Her talks include plenty of real-life tips, advice and useful information whilst not discouraging the audience with the scale of the issue.
