Therése in a few words

16 years of international experience of business strategy and business development of complex sales in the sectors of Telecommunication, Cloud Computing, Media, New Tech and Internet of Things.

With a long passion for the mix of business, technology and people, I always aim to incorporate all those aspects in a project. My scientific background allows me to take on projects from an analytical and pragmatic approach with the objective to maximize the results, and then adding creativity and team work to find innovative solutions. The experience of working both in huge international corporations and small and agile innovation units has learnt me to be effective in both.
