Aurelie Marchand, Senior Director, Head of Office

Incisive Health

My Job

I lead disease awareness campaigns targeted at European and national policy makers, ranging from rare diseases affecting minority ethnic groups to chronic diseases impacting a large population in European countries.

I help my clients navigate through the European healthcare policy landscape and support them to establish an impactful presence in Europe.

I also enjoy coaching our junior team members to help them progress in their career development.

My Experience

I am a true Public Affairs Consultancy expert with more than a decade of experience supporting my clients to achieve their business objectives through policy change.

I have worked in three exciting capitals – in Paris, Washington D.C and, for the past four years, Brussels, allowing me to explore public affairs from different national specificities.

Before that, I made sure to explore all sides of policy development with strong experience in the public sector working for the French Prime Minister on immigration policies; but also working at a political level with a Member of the Assemblée nationale from the Social Affairs Committee.

My Proudest Achievements

One of our current programmes where we are raising awareness of a rare disease primarily affecting people from African descent. This programme has led us to partnering with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups in under-privileged areas across Europe. We are giving a voice to a forgotten population suffering from a forgotten disease.

My Education

  • Master of European Affairs from Sciences Po Lille, France
  • Bachelor of Arts in Politics, Philosophy and Economics in Europe from the University of Kent, United Kingdom

My Languages

French and English.

My Interests outside work

I have been singing in choirs since childhood but a couple of years ago I joined the Ma’Chaka Gospel Singers in Brussels as one of their lead Sopranos.

I also enjoy practising scuba diving at Nemo 33 when not in my home country in Nosy-Be, Madagascar.

My Favourite Brussels anecdote

Being a foodie, I love that I can shop burrata, pasteis de nata, bottarga and pierogis all in one street near Flagey. Living the European dream!
