“Trust yourself, say what you want and go for it!”
|Business Unit:||Henkel Beauty Care|
|Division:||Henkel Beauty Care|
|Job title:||General Manager Henkel Tunesia|
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I had no concrete idea or dream regarding my professional life but I have been strongly influenced by the entrepreneurship spirit of my parents. They created their own business, I grew with it and I have therefore often thought about following their model meaning managing business and people.
What has motivated you to take on a position of high responsibility within Henkel?
My strongest motivation is my willingness to continuously learn which I am convinced is a major factor of success. Working in a challenging international environment, managing and developing people are also strong motivations.
What were the milestones in your career and are there people or circumstances that have favored your career?
Each cross departmental move I made was a key milestone. In the last decade, I actually moved from business controlling to marketing and sales positions. All these steps including an international assignment opened my way to where I am now: General Manager. I would never have gone this far without strong coaching and support from some of my passed managers to whom I am extremely grateful.
What is your advice to women seeking to build careers?
Trust yourself, say what you want and go for it!
