Welcome, Bienvenue

I solve innovation challenges leveraging my international experience in UX/UI design and web development, behavioral science, and business growth strategy.

 

The Challenge in 2020

Innovation is rife with buzz words, but it's not about fancy design terms or confusing tech lingo. Innovation is first and foremost about humanity.


Innovation exists to meet humanity’s evolving needs. First, we need to understand humans and their deepest wants and needs, which we can thanks to increasingly sophisticated understanding of behavioral science. In this moment, those wants and needs are affected by  the dual crises of climate and COVID.


We need an innovation process that combines psychology and sociology, technology, and the consumer's views of the threats in our future. Then we can build innovation that matters, resonates with consumers, and scales.


What's your process?

 

A bit on me

I am a results-oriented strategist, researcher, and marketer who develops and scales high potential high impact innovations. I started my career as a self-taught designer and website developer, segued into growth marketing, and then onto innovation strategy after my INSEAD MBA. My understanding of behavioral science and user/human experience in tech and beyond are at the core of my work.


Over the last decade, I have advised over 25 clients in C-suite (mainly in tech) across a variety of sectors from sanitation to FMCG, in New York, Jakarta, Nairobi, and now Paris. After my MBA, I led consulting projects for multinationals on their innovation and marketing strategies at Ipsos Strategy3 until the covid crisis hit. 

Since then, I launched the Association Women in Innovation in France to close the gender gap between women and men in this field. Today, we have more than 300 members, an executive committee of five powerhouse women, and monthly events.

I am also a mentor for social entrepreneurs at Live For Good and for students on My Job Glasses.
