Elisabeth Giret

With a Master's degree in Biology and an MBA, I have had an international career in leading US medical device companies, where I held various senior positions in R&D and marketing. I then graduated from UCLA with a degree in Human Resources and am certified to operate LinkedIn.
I created Kite Up in 2010, with the aim of putting my knowledge of the working world and economic actors at the service of executives looking for change or enhancement, or companies looking for notoriety on LinkedIn.
As an expatriate in Germany, Italy and Mexico, I have a perfect knowledge of the specific issues related to expatriation. I conduct interviews in French or English, during physical or virtual meetings on Skype. China, Emirates, Latin America, United States, Europe... my clients are all over the world, and of course in France.
I am a member of the Chambers of Commerce of Milan and Mexico City, of the international network French Founders, of the HBA (Healthcare Businesswomen Association) and of the FrenchTech network.

To what do we owe our legitimacy and our success?

First of all, we come from the business world. Prior to consulting, we held key operational positions in multinational companies in the fields of marketing, communication and general management. We are therefore perfectly familiar with the current needs of the company in terms of communication, image, notoriety, and we know what it means to work in such organizations, with their specific difficulties and challenges. Our proposals are concrete, pragmatic and effective. 


Secondly, we are true LinkedIn experts, certified by LinkedIn itself. Our various publications, including several in the Harvard Business Review, testify to our expertise in using all the possibilities offered by this new media, which has become a must.

Our expertise has led us to work with the Ecole Polytechnique de Paris, the ESCP, and the John Molson School of Business for their alumni training programs. 


Finally, our professional background means that we think internationally, and not just in France. We understand and adapt to intercultural differences and the difficulties and challenges they represent. Currently, our clients are based in Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, the United States, Bahrain, Chile, China, Japan, the Netherlands, Austria... and of course France.

Doctor of Medicine, graduate of INSEAD, I have spent my entire career in the pharmaceutical industry, first in marketing functions, then for 25 years as Managing Director, in French and foreign companies, in France, Italy and Mexico. 
This career has allowed me to acquire a solid experience in corporate strategy and corporate communication, as well as in Human Resources, recruitment, career management and employer branding.
In addition, for 11 years I worked as a Prudhommal Advisor (Management section) in the Paris region, thus completing my field of expertise with employment contract terminations. 
I am a French Foreign Trade Advisor (Italy, Mexico), former member of the Executive Committee of the French Chamber of Commerce in Italy, Advisor to the President of an Italian NGO (Fondazione Francesca Rava) on Human Resources, Organization and Process issues, and member of the board of a British NGO (NPH UK).
