Curriculum Vitæ

My life in a nutshell

On the move between Europe and North America since 2008, I’m Marketing Manager for Board Intelligence in London.

Prior to that, I was in charge of B2B and Government-focused marketing activities for Kaplan International English in the U.K.[1], and supported Orange Business Services marketing efforts in the U.S.A.[2][3]

I graduated with a Master’s degree from TALIS Business School in France, and a Bachelor of Arts (.Hons) from the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom. As part of my Master’s, I also spent two years at Laval University in Canada.

During my time in college, I completed an internship at GfK Retail & Technology, where one of the studies I conducted was later used by the French Ministry of Culture.[4] I also held science research assistant positions for two professors at Laval University’s Faculty of Business Administration.[5]

I am a scout leader, and care strongly about education, science and technology.
