The Arena, NAB, 700 Bourke Street, Docklands, VIC, 3008

Tom McQuillen , Chief Waste Warrior, Yume Food Australia

Description

Keen to know where you can purchase surplus food at cheaper prices while saving the planet at the same time? It’s called Yume. Enter the online market place that’s changing the way we shop and tackling food wastage at the same time. Yume facilitates the sale and donation of surplus food that would otherwise contribute to the 9.5million tonnes of food that ends up in Australian landfill each year.

If you think this figure is alarming then you should come along and listen to Tom McQuillen share his experiences at Yume. Tom was the first employee hired at the company and has been there for over two years.

With a background in management consulting and a degree in Information Systems, Tom worked with some of Australia’s biggest companies while at PwC and Grant Thornton, in both the Risk and Consulting service lines. His work included project management, technology implementation and strategy projects. He then relocated to Nicaragua to manage a sustainable conservation NGO with a staff of approximately 30 Nicaraguan employees and international volunteers.

At Yume, Tom is responsible for product management, process improvement and data analysis.
