I am an experienced international journalist and moderator currently living in New Zealand. I am bilingual in English and French.
I am the presenter and main researcher of Euronews' flagship programme The Global Conversation, where I interview world leaders in politics, business, culture and sport. These are in depth interactive discussions, which have included heads of state and government from Russia, Iran, Colombia, Brazil to Jordan as well as a whole host of European political leaders. I have also spoken to fashion greats Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier as well as sport's legend Mike Tyson. General promo video attached. There are so many interviews to choose from - I will happily send more links upon request. 

I also moderate and MC at high profile events such as the World Economic Forum in Davos (latest video attached), the European Business Summit and the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award. I have also been privileged to moderate live at #ASK Euronews/Youtube events with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and star European YouTubers. I also moderated the first ever European Presidential debate for the European Elections in 2014.
