About me
I have over 18 years of experience in brand marketing with iconic consumer lifestyle brands – developing consumer-centric strategies and innovative creative campaigns which have been proven to connect with audiences. I have a passion for what I do. I love to push the boundaries of what we think is possible. I believe constant innovation in the way we speak to people is absolutely vital for a thriving brand. I’ve worked in many different cultures, leading and supporting talented teams from different backgrounds and I understand that one solution rarely works for all corners of the world. I have a passion for innovative thinking, digitally led ideas and international communications. Specialties: brand communications, digital strategy, creative innovation, international marketing
