Middle East /N. Africa Experience
The first 10 years of my career were spent in the Middle East/North Africa working on brand communication strategies and launch campaigns for some of the world’s largest brand owners including Nestle, L’Oreal and Philip Morris.
In 2002 I moved to the UK and since then my focus switched to digital content marketing and advertising.
