Dubravka Dee Manojlovic
Business advisor, Formula Botanica Graduate, Organic Skincare Tutor and Lecturer
Specialized in Retail, Wholesale, Procurement and Sales Strategies, Approaching B2B and B2C markets without compromising brand philosophy
My career started in Europe, in the field of pharmacy retail selling; however, I quickly developed an interest in supply chains and operations. This led me to wholesale and acquiring skills in commercial affairs and procurement. At that point of my professional development, I negotiated contracts and cooperated with around 100 suppliers in addition to taking part in pricing and sales strategies towards other wholesales, retails and chain stores. Moreover, I delivered high monthly turnover of dietary supplements and cosmetics, ensuring that stock expenses remained under 10%. This was possible by following market trends, benchmarking, reaching target goals, forecasting and collaborating between sectors; I was taught to have a complete understanding of the business strategy and act accordingly.
Finally, I was fortunate enough to learn from the most successful professionals in the field as well as to back the practical experience up with a degree in Marketing Management. All these elements enabled me to acquire a deep understanding of branding, niche markets and the importance of creating value for direct customers and business partners.
Currently I am residing in Thailand where I get to collaborate with like-minded professionals in Wellness and Spa Industry.
