Upstream technical auditor | British Petroleum
Luck = Preparation + Attitude + Opportunity + Action.
Preparation – Master in Civil Engineering in France, fluent in English and German, enough Spanish to order tapas. An intense training with Schlumberger (international oil-services company) started my love for Oil & Gas and its people.
Attitude – A resilient and can-do mind-set took me to live in 6 countries and work in over 14. My EQ combined with a proven track record of delivery gets me the respect of colleagues, including oilrig workers.
Opportunity – Grab it. Network. Chairperson of Society of Petroleum Engineers London 2016/17 (2,200 members). Committee member of BP Women Network. Volunteer with Inspire the Future: energize kids to choose further education.
Action – A Yes-Woman… Before BP in London, I froze in Canada by -40deg, sweated in the Algerian desert by +50deg, and looked like a Teletubbie in my survival suit offshore North Sea.
I believe in capability, not in gender considerations.
