By listening to local experts about their needs, experiences and country-specific nuances to inform my regional strategy, I was able to build the foundation of what is now the EMEA Google and YouTube standards and best practices for social and content production, scale programs globally that increased efficiency and awareness, and lead the strategies for tentpole moments that often exceeded global benchmarks. 


The greatest impact I had in this role was empowering an under-resourced region of brilliant experts on sound creative strategies, ensure EMEA was a prioritised market for global and tentpole moments and set the tone for showcasing the impact truly global activations can have when the approach is both timely and geographically relevant in order to resonate with key audiences.

The Challenge

In my previous role as Head of EMEA Social Media & Content at Google, my mission was to create a high-functioning content and social media capability within the region and to equip PR and marketing leads from around the world to create winning holistic campaigns with confidence. My focus was to apply region-wide and country specific social media strategies to tentpole moments and create and scale resources for over 35 country teams.


The Process

My process for leading teams and building successful holistic digital campaigns has been to collaborate closely with local leads, let data guide the strategy and always aim to inform and delight to increase engagement.


  • Partnering locally and across-functionally: With the end goal front and centre, I align with teams on local nuances and begin outlining potential routes to achieve the goal whether a short term campaign or longterm initiative.
  • Leading with data: Whether it's a human insight, trending cultural matters or applying learnings from past campaigns, data is my secret weapon to make informed decisions about the approach, key audience and their interests to ensure relevance.
  • Go big on creativity: Thinking outside the box is one of the best parts of what I do and from experience, the best campaigns are relevant and fill a need (information, a laugh, nostalgia, togetherness, action, etc.).

The Solution

By listening to local experts about their needs, experiences and country-specific nuances to inform my regional strategy, I was able to build the foundation of what is now the EMEA Google and YouTube standards and best practices for social and content production, scale programs globally that increased efficiency and awareness, and lead the strategies for tentpole moments that often exceeded global benchmarks.
