Bridgett Lau is a sales professional with two decades of global experience in solution sales in corporates and early stage ventures in Europe, North America and the Middle Eastern markets. Along with Michael Cooke, Lau launched an e-commerce social enterprise called One Good Thing in 2017. One Good Thing brings creators and customers together, allowing the sharing of authentic stories and the chance to do good. Featuring 15 brands with over 450 products, inspirational items range from one-of-a-kind jewellery and sustainable bags to reclaimed wood headphones, conservation-focused camping gear and an upcycled travel section. In January 2019, One Good Thing celebrated 365 days of real impact. Some examples include clearing over 6,800 sqft of landmines in Laos, repurposing 112 meters of decommissioned fire hoses and diverting them from landfills, helping 45 people hear for the very first time through hearing aids and reconnecting 11 grannies to the world and curing loneliness, among other achievements.
