    En résumé

    I specialize in delivering Public, Government Affairs, Lobbying and Communication results to Fortune 500 companies. Since becoming a Communication, Corporate Affairs and Market shaper professional over 23 years ago, I've been fortunate to work with some great people and learn from leaders in the industry. I have worked for large companies (GE, Sanofi, Bombardier, Philip Morris, Renault, Novo Nordisk, Toyota), Governments (French Congress – Assemblée Nationale), and even managed my own consulting firm (Market Access). My experiences cross all aspects of Public and Government Affairs, Communications, Reputation, Market shaping, Crisis Management and Lobbying. I have managed groups ranging from two to more than 2500 people I co-founded the European Center for Public Affairs-Brussels (ECPA) and head the Public Affairs and Competitive intelligence Club for the Insead Alumni. My writings on integrity and ethics have been used in many anti-corruption legislations. I developed my passion for Public / Government Affairs during my Master program at Georgetown University (MSFS – Master of Science in Foreign Service) under Hon. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, I strive to be the best possible partner I can to my organizations, and enjoy winning campaigns, and participating in the growth of the organization I represent.
