I have 15 years experience in communications and marketing, 5 of which as an entrepreneur as I ran my own Experiential Marketing agency in Paris. I am specialized in retail, customer experience, and product and brand’s launches.
2 years ago I decided to relocate to London, as I needed to be fluent in English. To maximize my stay in the UK I decided to reinforce my expertise in retail and sales becoming a Department Manager at Hermès in Harrods while doing a Digital Marketing training at the University of Westminster of London.
Rich of this experience in the field, and this Digital Marketing Diploma I’ve just passed, I am now willing to find a job more in line with my background and seniority, as a Communications and Marketing Manager/Director, for example, in an international company, based in Paris or London.
