I've been working in the field of event management, communication and hospitality since 2002. 

I have a background in commerce, marketing and operations at the highest executive levels. I have had the opportunity to work for small/medium-sized companies as well as multinationals and governmental organizations in the US (New York), the UK (London), Switzerland (Geneva, Lausanne & Zürich) and the Middle East (Qatar, UAE).

My specialities lie in the event and cultural domain, organizing and managing small and big operations, from small arts festivals to big operations for worldwide events such as the WEF in Davos. 

I took part in diverse activities such as the managing of a communications and sponsoring department for an artistic festival, and the oversight of a government delegation’s stay in Switzerland.

- I have worked actively with a number of key accounts in the watchmaking (Patek Philippe, Hublot, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger Lecoultre, Rolex, Länge & Söhne, Tag Heuer...), hotel (Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons) and financial industries (Banco Santander, UBS, Crédit Suisse) sectors,
- I have the ability to manage a team of up to 20 collaborators on my own (strategy briefing, quality audit, compliance with best practices, management of meal shifts, reporting of daily schedules for invoicing, etc.).
- I'm at ease with complex, customized requests, and know how to satisfy the most specific needs, from design to implementation,
- I'm empathetic and communicative by nature, and have excellent interpersonal skills,
- At ease in both French and English, I'm a highly competent communicator, both orally and in writing.
