After an experience in communications, Annette moved into the field of Disability and Employment Rehabilitation, as manager of various projects throughout Europe. This experience gave her the opportunity to manage schemes funded through the European Community, work at European level and develop a network of global contacts.
Thereupon, she was appointed to the executive management team of the Richmond Fellowship for Employment and Training charity, where she developed her competencies in strategic management, services restructuring and team management.
After four years in Spain, Annette settled down in Paris. She set up a Corporate English teaching and coaching business, incorporating cross-cultural coaching and intercultural communication applied in a business context.
