This blog “Pop in Paname” combines two of my passions : tourism and writing. And I thought it might be interesting for people discovering Paris to have a view from the inside! And well, yes, I still feel like a tourist in Paris 🙂
Tourism ❤ ? I always loved to discover new countries since I started travelling when I was 15 years old. My first idea was to work on tourist tours in a Tour Operator. That’s why I chose to do a Master 2 in Marketing in tourism at ISC Paris Business Schoold and why I studied Marketing at Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. It also offered me the chance to discover a new continent and improve my english.
Then, once back from Hong Kong to Paris with my diploma, I worked 4 years for the airline from Hong Kong : Cathay Pacific. I was responsible for the development of the loyalty strategy for France and also for the company brand image together with a PR agency.
After this experience, I chose to go back to my first love : the hotel industry. When I was younger I worked during a summer job in a familial hotel in the UK and I loved the service spirit. I also worked one year for Best Western France at the headquarter in Marketing. What was missing for me was to have an experience inside a hotel, to live the hotel life, to work closely with all hotel services, and to meet clients on a daily basis. That’s now the case, for 4 years, at Hilton Paris Opera. I’m in charge of hotel promotion and brand image as Marketing & Communication Executive.
As Marketing is now mostly Digital, I’m working this year on a 150 hours certification in Digital Marketing.
Writing ❤ ? Yes, I reminder even when I was 7 years old I loved to write poems. I found one of them recently at my grandmother’s flat ! This is in french, about a flower ! Fortunately my spelling skills have well improved since this period 😉
I also had the opportunity to benefit from a training in journalism technical skills when I worked for Cathay Pacific, which was really interesting and complete ! As you can imagine, what I like the most in my now 10 years work experience is to write (newsletters, articles, posts etc…)
