What Can We Learn from Camile Thai Kitchen?

Katie Doherty, MII Grad Content Editor

It can be daunting graduating from college and entering the professional workforce for the first time. You have very little experience and may not know how a company’s marketing operations are run. I am a recent marketing graduate as well and despite having a good amount of practical knowledge gained from my course, I know I still have a lot to learn.

I wanted to share what I learned from The Marketing Institute of Ireland’s webinar with Camile Thai Kitchen. Camile is a female-focused home delivery brand with twenty-seven restaurants in Ireland and eight in the United Kingdom. They produce healthy takeaway food and have been named as the healthiest takeaway in Ireland. Caoimhe O’ Reilly, Head of Strategy and Daniel Greene, Head of Marketing both spoke to our members about the various steps they took to grow Camile’s brand and their plans for the future.
