What I do at W3C

Since February 2015, I became Head of W3C Marketing & Communications. I maintain a description of what I do.

I am in charge of the Consortium's communication strategy and messaging, Public, Member and internal communications; I manage the Consortium's Website and Comm activities, including press, publications, branding, marketing, and some Member relations.

I joined W3C in January 1999, as W3C Europe administrative assistant, with a degree in secretarial work and English as a foreign language. I became W3C Europe administration manager in 2001 and later joined the W3C Communications Team part-time in 2005, and full-time in 2008. My duties included Advisory Board scribe duties and meetings planning until 2017, W3C press clippings, management of Supporters Program applications, monitoring translators' list, being contact person for authorized translations. I was also involved in community development and outreach (microblogging, W3C blog, some developer community things). I was Incubator Activity Lead and then helped support W3C Community and Business Groups until 2017.
