Experience

Summary

I have been freelancing for 8 years (in marketing, social media and translation - English/French roles mainly). I was also employed as Head of Marketing by a startup and, before that, built and led IBM's program for startups in France for 5 years.

Work history

Head of Content and Marketing
In charge of all things marketing, social media, PR and communication. From the whole marketing strategy to the execution and creation of content.
IBM
Marketing Manager and Startup Program Leader
Initially in charge of marketing consulting for business partners & internal teams. Took charge of project to build, launch and develop an initiative for startups, IBM Global Entrepreneur, which I led for 5 years - handling business, social media, etc.

Portfolio

Revival and re-positioning of Eiver's Twitter account (and other networks)

Account initially created but ridden by an initial need for followers (lots of fakes, no engagement,...). Cleaned the account and re-started from scratch to build a solid following. No follow for follow. Just content and followers who make sense. Slow(er) growth but quality now.

English to French translation of the whole Azavista website

For a French customer, Azavista (event management platform), needed their whole site - and platform - translated from English to French. More than 20,000 words that had to match the linguo of the industry. Project done in a few days and on-going relationship now.

Interests

What I read

I read a lot online. Mostly news and articles about startups/entrepreneurship, marketing, social media and sports. Not only locally but on a worldwide scale. I tend to not stop at geography or timezones.

Side projects

I have been involved in hundreds of startups projects (as advisor, mentor, etc.), lead a badminton club in France and we launched a badminton school for kids. I have also been coaching in the UK. I an currently involved in a new startup development.

Ideal team

Early-stage startup type. A few people, fully dedicated and willing to rock but interacting a lot and bouncing ideas off each other.
