The Challenge in 2020 and beyond
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 French-American strategist, researcher, and marketer who seeks to develop and scale 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 30 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 350+ members, a robust volunteer team I am proud to call my colleagues, and frequent events.
