Inspired by rooftop urban beekeeping initiatives in some of the world’s most iconic buildings including New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris and London’s Tate Modern, Bees On The Roof offers Dublin’s first official Corporate beekeeping program that provides valuable Profiling and Corporate Social Responsibility opportunities for organisations, including educational and wellness benefits to staff.
Emma started her career in the corporate world by completing a degree in Trinity College, followed by 12 years in the world of International Banking in London and Dublin, before then running her own business for the next 10 years.
Emma became increasingly aware of the challenges facing the protection of the fragile planet on which we all depend and decided that a career change which would allow her to contribute to this vital goal was the way forward.
She is working on her beemasters for the last few years, is involved with education for schools nationally and helps to run her local bee association.
Heading back to Trinity, she undertook a post grad programme in Tangent, Trinity’s Idea workshop to investigate a way to use her knowledge of bees and passion for the environment to set up her own business.
The outcome of this was Bees on the Roof.
