Enthusiast, she is constantly looking for new communication trends. Bicultural, Coralie graduated from business schools in France, Australia and Spain (Skema Business School, Bond University and Universidad Autonoma).

Our regional leads represent the EACD in the different European countries and therefore provide local contact links in our wide-spanning network.
