I drive the development of Cambre’s energy & climate practice through client support, new business growth and marketing activities. I also act as the company’s wordsmith: I work across teams to develop clients’ messaging frameworks, position papers and other communications materials and coach team members on drafting/ messaging.
I joined Cambre in late 2014 after two years working as teaching and research assistant in the College of Europe’s Politics Department (Bruges). Prior to that, I did traineeships in a trade association (2012) and in the cabinet of Commissioner Oettinger (2011 – energy at the time), and worked for one year for the French Energy Regulator (2010).
My Proudest Achievements
Hearing a speech I wrote delivered by a Head of State at COP 21 (and it lives on, thanks to YouTube!).
MA EU Political Studies, College of Europe (Bruges, 2011). BA International Trade and Chinese, INALCO (Paris, 2010)/ University of Edinburgh (2007).
English, French, Italian.
My Interests outside work
Discovering new beers and new foods, pretending to take up running, composing silly songs about everything, re-reading Harry Potter for the hundredth time.
My Favourite Brussels anecdote
“I probably shouldn’t agree to this but it’s four in the morning and I really need a coffee” – very high level person, very crucial trilogue. Or the irony of spending months devising a “strategy” and your whole sector’s fate being decided by a broken coffee machine.
