Hi everyone! Some of you may not follow me on Linkedin or on Twitter, so I’m dropping a short blog post to (1) let you know I now work as Head of Marketing at Didomi and (2) invite you to an upcoming webinar I am organizing. I usually don’t do this here, but it’s a first time for me, and I’d be keen to have some of you on board. Continue reading →
The last blog post I wrote about my favorite articles dates 5 months back. It feels like an eternity.
These have been pretty eventful: I switched from one tech company to another, have taken time for myself between both jobs, picked up running quite seriously again, spent a lot of time reading, and – now – we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. Crazy. Let me share 10 tweets from the last five months… which may or may not be related to the above events. Continue reading →
I have just finished Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography (full text here), a short and entertaining read written in 18th century English. Once you get used to the prose, it becomes very enjoyable to read. I learned a lot about the founding father, his life and travels (including that he started writing the autobiography just across the Seine, in 1784), his views, skills, inventions and various projects as a public servant.
It’s been a really long time since I haven’t published one of these “My Favorites of…” blog posts, right? Well, when starting a new position, you need to be 100% dedicated and settle in your job, which is what I have been doing since my last post here.
Self-awareness is key to happiness. I think a lot – maybe too much – about work, life, health, attitude and balance. But if there is one thing that I have the luck to be satisfied with, it’s my job! I love working in marketing & communications and am incredibly thankful to go to work happy every single day.
But to sustain this positive state-of-mind and to remain challenged, you sometimes need to move out of your comfort zones, think 2 or 3 steps ahead and not self-satisfy with what you have (am I overthinking again?). This is what I had in mind when having the opportunity to join Ogury, a globally operating tech firm that is creating a whole new category in marketing.
It has been boiling hot here in France this week, with temperatures above 40°C in many places across the country. It’s difficult to argue that these extreme temperatures are unrelated to climate change, which in turn is caused by much of our human activity… including what we eat.
In my favorites reads of the month, you’ll find a great, interactive, well-illustrated, data-rich NYT article about food and climate change… as well as a number of usual suspects about marketing, technology and the likes. Enjoy the read, and stay tuned in the next days.
Connaissez-vous Les Collectionneurs (anciennement Châteaux & Hôtels Collection) ? Il s’agit d’un regroupement d’hôteliers et de restaurateurs indépendants, réunis dans un programme qui a pour ambition de devenir “la référence pour les voyageurs du monde de l’hôtellerie de charme et de la restauration gourmande“.
Je vous propose ici un avis personnel, subjectif (et non-rémunéré) sur les 4 adresses toulousaines du programme – 2 restaurants et 2 hôtels – que j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir tester (cela peut avoir du bon de voyager pour le travail). J’ai inclus aussi un petit bonus, non-loin de Carcassonne, idéal pour un week-end extra-toulousain !
