Through those experiences I have managed large teams and handled various projects involving Marketing Strategy, digital marketing, SEO, communication & PR, web development, trade shows & exhibitions, social media, emailing campaigns, design, etc.

I founded myfairtool in 2015 to offer a solution for companies exhibiting at trade shows to better manage their event and improve their outcome. For the same reasons, I wrote The Trade Show Chronicles in 2017.

Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir Julien dans le cadre des conférences du Club Entrepreneur de Hong Kong Accueil en Juin 2017 sur le théme ''Le marketing de contenu - la clé d'une réussite à long terme''. Pendant cette présentation de plus de 2 heures, les entrepreneurs français de Hong Kong présents ont pu apprendre, échanger, écouter et interagir efficacement et pragmatiquement sur ce vaste thème et ceci grâce à la connaissance expérimentée de Julien, de sa pédagogie, de son empathie et de sa capacité à appréhender les marchés et spécificités de chaque participant. Debutants ou moins débutants, tous nos participants avec qui nous avons débriefé aprés la séance ont souligné la densité en cas pratiques de la présentation ...et la to-do list qu'ils en ont tous retirés, gage de la qualité de la formation de Julien. RDV est donné pour une prochaine séance à Hong Kong en 2018 sans faute !

My Book

I published The Trade Show Chronicles in 2017 to help companies exhibiting at trade shows to better prepare for their show and manage every aspect of it.

This book is written as a novel and tells the story of a young sales person organizing his first exhibition booth.

Instead of a traditional business book with checklists and bullet points, you enjoy an entertaining story packed with concrete situations and applicable tips that will change the way you manage trade shows forever!
