after a scientific career, I worked in communication in agencies, then in public affairs and now mainly in sustainable development. My employer is a professional federation of the cosmetics and detergents industries.
As communication manager, I organize the federation’s sectoral communication and public affairs (relations with stakeholders and government organizations). As a spokesperson, I represent the industry to the media and negotiate agreements with stakeholders. As a sustainable development manager, I create, implement and manage sectoral sustainable development and social responsibility initiatives. My team consists of 3 people working in French, Dutch and English.
I have a wide range of experience in the fields of science, communication, environment and politics. My university education (science and technology) and my experience in communication have enabled me, on the one hand, to become a sectoral spokesperson who knows perfectly « his products » and, on the other hand, an expert in the fields of activity of the members of my federation (for example: ethics of cosmetic claims and advertising).
