    Valg Studio

    Valg Studio is the brainchild of Liga Valge who first began working with polymer clay in 2011, quickly becoming fascinated by the possibilities that this versatile medium had to offer. Since then Liga has set up Valg Studio and designs jewellery and homeware pieces, each designed and made by hand. Liga Valge is a member of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and the International Polymer Clay Association while also being a member of FORM Carlow.

    Payzaar

    Payzaar is a new, revolutionary approach to global payroll. Their philosophy is simple; allow customers to leverage what works (i.e. the existing local payroll expertise) and augment it with what is lacking (i.e. the integration and harmonisation across the local payrolls). Rather than forcing customers to rip and replace their local payroll solution in order to benefi t from an integrated global solution, they decided to leverage those existing local solutions and build around them. It is a powerful platform that helps to streamline global payroll operations and gain unparal- leled insights into your organisation’s global employee bases and payroll data. No matter how far reaching your business operating territories are, Payzaar brings it all together for you. This is an interesting Q&A with Trevor Townsend, Co-Founder and COO of a relatively new company, this is certainly a company to watch and one we can all learn from....
