Your Global Interpreter
Too often have I witnessed how people speak different languages and just don't understand each other. From IT transaction codes to marketing terms, each team has its own jargon - to which is added the multicultural landscape brought by globalization.
As a multilingual engineer who has worked in IT, sales, marketing and has even founded her own e-commerce company, I am the chameleon you need to help you with your projects.
ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
I worked three years as a consultant in a management consulting firm. I master the approach of effective problem solving, especially when it comes to assessing the current landscape of a company - processes, tools - for an improvement of productivity.
I also founded an international e-commerce company, which gave me a first-hand experience in the field of e-commerce, on all levels.
Finally I worked on the development all across Europe of an IT company offering services for the e-commerce, which allowed me to gain insights on the differences between the different markets in Europe, each country's distinctiveness, as well as its level of maturity.
I learn fast based on experience but also based on constant independent learning and training.
I am very sensitive to cultural differences, as I have worked in different countries with people from different nationalities - especially in France, Germany where I currently live, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom, as I master these five languages.
I offer you my expertise for your projects in:
IT and B2B marketing
Change management and internal communication
