Thalia White is the founder and CEO of Bee Conservation, bringing her record of innovation and success in the high-value business world to a company that represents a personal passion with global significance.
Thalia’s career so far has taken in negotiating multi-million dollar deals in the gas sector; running European sales for business information specialists Russell Publishing, and leading sales and marketing as a director at the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
While excelling in the corporate world, Thalia was also living life to the full, mastering everything from marathon running to driving HGVs.
The British countryside has been a constant in Thalia’s life.
Her life-long love of horses has seen her compete in point to point racing and maintain a considerable personal stable of rides. So it was a natural step, in 2012, for Thalia to team her commercial skills with her equine expertise to found Nag’s Products, a business built around four horse toys she designed and patented.

The birth of her son, Rory, in 2011 sparked a change of perspective for Thalia that was to be the inspiration for Bee Conservation.
As a youngster in Surrey Thalia had been fascinated by the bees buzzing away in the garden next door. She got involved and promised herself that one day she would have her own hives.
True to form, Thalia fulfilled her dream. Starting with a single hive she learned the fascinating art of bee keeping. She now farms Bees.
Like all apiarists she has become aware of the global crisis for bees.
Under threat from habitat loss, pesticide use, parasitic varroa mites, and colony collapse disorder bee numbers have plummeted around the world. In Europe, the number of bee colonies was down by 25% according to Rabobank’s 2011 report.
A crisis for bees, which pollinate around 80% of the world’s plants and as much as 90% of our food plants, could soon be a crisis for global food security.
