Describe your role at Ogury and the types of projects your team focuses on.
I have the great honor of managing the Client Success team in Europe. My main mission is to support our clients and ultimately support the growth of Ogury. To do this, my team and I are responsible for managing client relationships from pre-sales to post-sales. Our key objective is to support our clients and ensure they meet their campaign goals.
What did you do immediately after graduation?
I turned down a job offer at Havas Media after my graduation internship to move to Australia where I worked as a waitress in Manly Beach near Sydney and traveled. During my trip, I followed a lot of media news, especially mobile, because I had written a thesis on the mobile media revolution. It was right at the time of the release of the iPhone. I read in the press that Publicis had just bought a mobile marketing start-up called “Phonevalley”. So I sent my thesis to Publicis and I was recruited from Sydney to develop mobile within the Vivaki group in Paris.
Who is your modern-day hero and why?
Undoubtedly my twin sister. She is my heroine. She is an accomplished woman with 3 wonderful children. She manages her professional and personal life with ease. She is also the most beautiful person I know on earth with the most beautiful quality: empathy.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given? (professional or personal)
“We should not be ashamed of our failures, because without them, we cannot know the true flavor of success.” That’s great personal and professional advice that has really stuck with me. It’s important to stay humble but also be able to manage our failures in order to move forward fast.
What advice would you give to a new Ogurian coming into the business to help them succeed?
Be curious, be open-minded, ask lots of questions, but most of all, be yourself.
