About this event

Mr Commercial; I am responsible for sales, marketing and growing the business. I've never been a fan of hats.

At Trtl (pronounced as turtle) our mission is to create the optimum sleeping solutions for the traveller on economy class, globally.

Sleep is a fundamental part of life and if you sleep well, you put yourself in the position to be your best - it's 'life in HD' . Having a great nights sleep has been shown to improve your productivity, creativity and even your happiness. If you're a regular traveller, then you might feel the effects of sleep deprivation more than most.

Trtl Pillow is the travel pillow; reinvented, and the first step in achieving our goal. It provides more comfort and neck support than any travel pillow in the world, it packs small and weighs no more than a muffin - so even Ryanair won’t mind you carrying it – and it removes the embarrassment factor you usually experience with a travel pillow, as it looks like a scarf.

Trtl is now stocked in every major airport in the UK as well as some of the larger European airports. Our aim to is to have Trtl stocked in every hub airport in the world and we are well on our way to achieving this.

We're very passionate about design and working with great people.
