“I am my clients Brand Ambassador. In fact people say I talk more about my clients than about myself. I love helping individuals identify, clarify and communicate what makes them unique and using storytelling as the conduit.”
Following an MBA and a 15-year international career working with Fortune 500 corporate brands in Asia, the U.S. and Europe, Bernadette’s transition to personal brands was natural. It meshed perfectly with her intuitive nature, entrepreneurial spirit, and desire to work virtually and live on both sides of the big “pond” i.e. the U.S. and Europe. Ever enthusiastic about optimizing the power of 2.0 technology she works with clients on-site and “virtually” around the world, conducting sessions, online webinars, and training on Career Development, Personal Branding, e-Reputation Management, LinkedIn and Personal and Corporate Storytelling.
Bernadette is dialed into a slew of international networks and associations and is President of the French Chapter of Thunderbird School of Global Management Alumni Association. A natural connector, with a reputation as the networking “Queen”, she delights in dipping into her vast network to find opportunities for her clients.
A true believer that Storytelling is an “Art” that can be developed, she is on the speaker circuit as an evangelist for the power of narratives and loves to “spread the word” helping individuals and corporations craft captivating and engaging stories. A delightful extension of her “day job”, she hosts Storytelling Evenings in Paris once a month which gather storytelling enthusiasts who mingle, dine and listen to an entertaining Storyteller. Meant to entertain, amuse, enlighten, educate or any combination thereof, featured storytellers include artists, actors, musicians, magicians, singers, dancers, authors, designers, chefs, photographers and more.
Be ready when, with genuine interest, she asks you…”So, what’s your story?”.
