Trade show sales & marketing expert.
Hard to guess a personality from a few words on a resume, right ? Not only is it hard but you’re subject to confirmation bias reading it…
So let me introduce myself in an unusual manner :
I felt out place most of my life, until a great marketer in NYC (hello James) labelled me “a global citizen in search of a home”. He nailed it, I was most of my life on a crash course of exploration and learning on 3 continents, in search of “belonging”. Seems like all it was was a hypersensitive thinking something was wrong with him… Anyway, getting know myself and the world did give me a heads up about human nature. A blessing in disguised. It sharpened my skills to connect deeply with every kind of people wherever I go. So much I’m making a living out it now :-).
What the hell is an expert in trade shows ?
Think about it for a sec, how well do you run your trade shows ? Complicated right ? How to measure it’s potential ? How to measure your team’s performance ? How to be creative in a booth and still look like a serious company ? What to do during the show to attract visitors and turn them into leads that is not dull and cheesy like handing out swags ? And what to do after the show to turn these leads into customers ? Well knowing all that is what makes a trade show expert. It takes sales, marketing, and organization skills. And non conformity (yeah Ralph Waldo Emerson). As you will see from my work life’s resume all my previous experiences come together in harmony with trade shows. That’s where I help companies play their symphony.

City of Livry Gargan
Greater Paris Area
Oh boy what a nut job ! I’ve learned a lot about human nature in it being caught between the politcian “way of thinking” and the reality of citizen life in a suburb of Paris.
Ever watched Spin City with Michael J. Fox ? Well that was my everyday life with a little bit less comedy and a little more tragedy unfortunately.
What I did : Organized 87 events from 10 to 5 000 attendees, taking care of protocole, logistics and writing speeches for the mayor, Alain Calmat. In charge of the editorial line of the monthly local newspaper, I’ve set the agenda for the writing commitee, reread every article to make sure it was aligned with our communication strategy. I Managed crisis communication when s**t happened and received for private meetings more than 200 citizens who had a demand or an issue with the municipality. Oh and we won the Elections in 2008 in a landslide +9% from the 54,67% of 2001, 62,58%.
Red Sea, Israel
What a job! 18 hours of work a day, smile mandatory or you’re out, but I loved every minute of it. If it was paid better I would probably still be doing it. What I did : took care of kids so their parents could actually be on holiday, organising their days at the Mini Club to keep them entertained and send them back to their parents happy but exhausted. I’ve also learned the secret sauce of the famous Club Med that I still use today on trade shows.

Young & Rubicam
Greater Paris Area
A bit of a deception… Advertising as I learnt it in University was much more fascinating than the reality. Nevertheless, I did help with the logistics of RFP in “new business”. Then moved on to an account manager position where I took care of logistics and go between the client, the legal and creative department to create TV and radio ads for Danone’s dairy products : Actimel, Gervais aux Fruits and Petit Pot Nature. Unfortunately too advertising on junior level didn’t pay even to make a living, so I moved on.
