About Us

Gavin Copeland

(no relation to Louis!)

Gavin has always been creative, entrepreneurial, and willing to push technology and commercial boundaries. As evidenced throughout his career, he has predominantly worked within the Dublin Start-Up Industry including endeavouring to start his own business in 2015. Through the unique creative marketing agency, Je Suis Personality, he sought to bring real, tangible personalisation to Dublin’s thriving Café Space, where he established The Personal-a-Teas Café Community. Until Covid-19, Gavin was Business Development + Customer Success Leader with local Dublin SME business, FreshPoint Ltd.

His expertise is in commercial relationship building, client-facing and generating new sales leads for clients. Many of the B2B relationships he has established for clients since 2016 are still in operation today.
