“A career in emerging markets is like balancing in water, willing to swallow the water and adapting to a constantly changing temperature…but with a great rewarding experience.” -- Martial SEKELY, General Director, Lactalis International 

 

Listening to Mr. Sekely, General Director, LACTALIS, share his expertise of working in emerging markets was very interesting. I admired his key points for success: Ambition, Engagement, Simplicity.  It was exciting to also discover that LACTALIS has many rewarding international posts for graduates who have a passion for working in emerging markets and are interested in gaining experiences in diverse environments such as China, India, and the countries of the Middle East.

 

As an MSc in Global Business student, seeking my first international employment opportunity, I felt encouraged to apply Mr. SEKELY's key points for success in my future endeavors. I was exceptionally moved by his advice of “Keeping It Simple.”  When communicating and managing local differences in a complex business environment, like emerging markets, the advice of keeping it simple goes far.  Even in a mature market like France, my experience as an international student has shown me the importance of maintaining simplicity when communicating and working across cultures.
