Laura Jackson, Popcorn Shed
Laura Jackson is a self-proclaimed foodie with food being a central part of her life and family traditions for as long as she can remember. Her passion for sharing her food creations begun at the age of 9, selling homemade slush puppies to neighbours during a hot summer. Laura sold fudge at food exhibitions during her time at university, and her first job as a graduate “in the real world” was traversing the streets of London and ‘cold calling’ face-to-face in restaurants and cafes selling iced coffee (during what turned out to be one of the wettest summers on record!).
Laura has worked as a management consultant for a large worldwide consultancy firm for over 6 years, consulting for a number of FTSE 100 companies. Alongside her day job she has run a number of events (club nights, singles dinner parties and weekends away for young professionals) and a pop-up bakery. Laura was nominated for Brummell’s 2015 ‘Ones to Watch’ http://brummellmagazine.co.uk/ones-watch-2015
At Popcorn Shed, Laura heads up the sales and marketing team. She has a keen eye for great design and detail.
