Résumé

"Helping employees to turn their ideas into businesses."

My passion for Innovation and Technology led me to explore the business and marketing side of projects which I enjoy very much. Consequently, I've been contributing to the marketing success of the winners of the latest ideation events within Gemalto (Hackathon 2015 & 2014, BIG Ideas Challenge 2014 & 2013 and 4 other local ideation events).

Also, my experience in 6 different countries and my interpersonal skills allow me to adapt quickly while having a global perspective.

Soft skills: Analytical and yet creative problem solver, good team player, optimist & empathic. I love learning!
