In her 7 years at the IOC, she managed the strategic development, production and implementation of the promotional brand campaign for four Olympic Games with the objective of promoting Olympic Values beyond the Olympic Games with an integrated approach of TV, digital, social media, two-way engaging communication and a pro-social activation component.

These research insights were used to successfully sell and renew partnerships as well as maintain the Olympic Brand recognition to its highest level.

With her deep knowledge of business development, she also led the development of effective fit-for-purpose sales tools which included compelling benefits to partner with the property. These tools were used for training, sales, and servicing of partners at all 3 levels of Olympic sponsorship resulting in various sponsorship renewals and new partners contracts with IOC, Host Cities Organizing Committees and National Olympic Committees, including the multi-million dollars deals with Bridgestone and Toyota.
