The corporate plane

I joined Multiconsult after having travelled around the world. My resume includes a tourism diploma, time spent at Eurodisney and eight years as a flight attendant. The long layovers of one week in the Far East began to take their toll, and I wanted to get back on the ground and come home. I enrolled for Tourism Science and looked for a new job. I had an interview with Multiconsult, who appreciated my knowledge of languages, and they told me I could start the next day, in the internationalisation office. A job without stopovers, because I am always on the go. In the meantime, I graduated and received my Masters in International Marketing. We support companies to sell overseas. Some people see exporting as a life jacket that will extricate them from the crisis we are experiencing. But they should rather take a long-term view, and implement a longer term strategy. A job that you learn by working in the field, and allows you to deal with people that sometimes have a very different mentality to your own. When I was flying, the cabin crew changed every time, and this turnover helped to make be more flexible, and open my mind. Today this helps me to deal easily with different people. A company is like a plane. with the businessman at the controls. He decides the take-off, setting the market coordinates and the flight instructions. As a consultant, I advise, but very often, it takes time for them to listen to me. A kind of psychological challenge. And then once they accept my role, we work well and intensely (and allow the business to fly).
