Our Guest Speaker: Yas Grigaliunas
Yas is the Founder and Chief Evangelist of the award winning circular economy enterprise, Circonomy (formerly known as World’s Biggest Garage Sale). An entrepreneur of impact and a circular economy pioneer in Australia, Yas recently closed a $4M equity capital raise to expand nationally, with Officeworks as a key investor and shareholder. Together, through expansion of reuse, repair, resource recovery and recommerce initiatives, Yas is thrilled to work with partners and investors to bring the next phase of growth, seeing her Circonomy vision come to life.
Yas is completely comfortable sharing the gritty and unpretty, evoking emotions to help others navigate their own natural flow state. Traversing transitions and championing change is where Yas is most fearless…..with a friendly and fanatical fortitude to encourage and empower others to find fullness & flow.
