My passion lies at the intersection of learning, communication and design: I started out in translation and copywriting working for big brands and gradually got into visual communication, storytelling and user experience. I love working with ideas as well as getting my hands dirty pushing pixels and sorting out post-it notes. Design for me is the perfect bridge between these two worlds!
A big part of my work is designing Betazone presentations for global WEF meetings. These are immersive talks featuring academics, designers, business leaders and explorers. I help speakers develop their stories and produce visual presentations and animated backdrops. In the run-up to the events, I run storytelling workshops to help colleagues brief speakers and moderators. When not working on Betazones, I write copy and design collateral and visual assets for internal communication and e-Learning courses.
I worked for UNITAR, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. My work focused mainly on designing e-Learning courses on a wide range of subjects, from entrepreneurship in developing countries to climate change, in collaboration with subject matter experts and instructional designers. I also designed educational and promotional material (presentations, manuals, flyers, banners, .etc)
I worked as a translator, copywriter and conference interpreter for big brands in the fashion, wine and watch-making industries as well as NGOs and not-for-profits. Among other things, I worked with InZone - a training centre for humanitarian interpreters in conflict zones - and interpreted for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Owen Jones and Jeremy Corbyn.
