Since April 2013, I’ve been working at the World Economic Forum.
I started out at our headquarters in Geneva, working as a copy editor. I then relocated to our New York office and in July 2015 moved to our Digital Communications team to work as a commissioning editor and staff writer.
What does my typical day look like? It normally starts off with an editorial meeting, where we'll share ideas we have for new stories. Once we've decided which ideas we like, I'll maybe write an article, produce a video script or see if there's someone in the Forum's extensive community of experts we could commission to write a piece.
It's a strategy that's been paying off: my colleagues and I have increased monthly unique website viewers from fewer than 1 million in February 2015 to over 4 million at the start of 2017, and increased Facebook fans from fewer than 1 million in January 2016 to over 3 million today. The BBC once described us as a social media juggernaut, and they weren't wrong.
Before the Forum, I worked at the International Organization for Standardization, first as a copy editor and then as an editorial project manager. I've also interned with the the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
