Rosie is Lebanese-Swiss and has just moved back to Lebanon after having spent the last fifteen years living and working in Switzerland. She specialises in communications and marketing and is currently practicing these skills managing the Heineken portfolio in Lebanon. In her previous job, Rosie’s projects took her to Norway, Paris, Italy, London and Dubai where she explored how working in such a global landscape required a remarkable level of fluency and love of other cultures and an astute demonstration of cultural sensitiveness. Off the job, Rosie loves to be in touch with nature, jogging, hiking and skiing. Rosie is an avid reader and is curious about all talks of life. Read Rosie’s posts.
Pippa is an Aussie woman, living in Switzerland, with an enduring travel-bug. Communication was a natural extension of her curiosity, love of people and stories, and habit of talking too much. So far it has taken her around the globe, including work in Samoa, China, Guinea, Senegal, Liberia, and Trinidad and Tobago, to name a few. Pippa is continuously humbled by how much new languages, cultures and customs (and the simple art of listening) can teach her. She now works in the UN, with plans to continue down the path of humanitarian communications for as long as possible. When she’s not working or globe-trotting, she can be found in the kitchen, up a mountain, on the couch, in a forest or creek, or sitting on a verandah having a drink with friends. Read Pippa’s posts.
