No surprise, innovation fascinates me, for a broad range of reasons. Mainly because I’ve always enjoyed sharing these little bits of ideas which take us further. I think innovation is proximate and universal, common and specific at the same time. Moving forward, it looks like innovation might turn out to be critical and necessary (a gut feeling I have, or a dream, you tell me).
I have worked in small, medium, large, XXL size businesses, and driven a wide variety of innovation related projects. As a marketing and strategy professional, I’ve had to define innovation stories, help picture the future, size the gap, build the bridge. As a great story-teller, I thought I’d write a blog about these bridges and other wonderful structures that take us from today to tomorrow. And see where they take me.
In June 2017, I have launched the “Big Berry” initiative, a local communication and marketing agency to boost talents from Le Pays de La Châtre en Berry. While spreading local and practical information between businesses, public services and inhabitants on our local social media: ilovelachatre.fr, this project seeks to highlight the variety of expertise, inspirations and initiatives driven by our local community. Our agency supports them with creative communication and marketing tools.
