    I have a broad experience of communication in Russia by setting up the communication function in a French audit society in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg for 6 years. During the past years, I had the opportunity to develop my knowledge of communication and marketing aspects, working on various projects with different partners and benefiting from the Group communication and marketing experience. Recently, I also developed the social media strategy of the company in Russia and the CSR policy, by launching in Russia the Group project "A Women's world, a better world?" book written by Muriel de Saint Sauveur (search for a translator, a publishing house, work with partners to publish and promote the book, participation in book fairs, organisation of a road trip in 4 cities in Russia with the author including debates and signing sessions). Since May 2014 I started to work as International Marketing Manager for Akasya Shoes, a Turkish footwear company producing high quality leather shoes. I am in charge of developing the company's activities on an international scale. I speak French, English, Russian, I have an intermediate level in Turkish and basic notions of German and Polish.
