Unrolled film of snapshots of Marie-Helene Cussac portraits

Spotted the snorkel? My name’s Marie-Hélène Cussac. Welcome to my latest website entirely dedicated to creativity management.

After 10 years working in EU affairs & communications while keeping my lyrical singing career afloat, I realised how much singing & art in general fed my work as a speaker, as a writer, as an editor for renewed creativity in my communications job.

I thus developed a set of tools, which I now use to help professionals …unleash their creativity. I provide workshops & seminars to senior managers and business school students alike.

My experiences include:

postgraduate teaching

in lobbying the EU, public speaking, intercultural communication and communication in the EU, (at inter alia Paris 3-La Sorbonne Nouvelle, ESCP Business School, SKEMA Business School, International University of Monaco, INSEEC, EDC Paris Business School, Media School Group, Florida Atlantic University)

writing & editing

as editor of the monthly Europe Direct newsletter (for the EU-wide Europe Direct network supported by the European Commission), as editor of the Europa Diary (3.5 million print run in 29 editions and 23 languages for the European 15-18 year olds), as creator and editor of GE Vibes, monthly magazine by Generation Europe Foundation for young professionals.

design of training programmes

for companies on the latest EU legislation and practices (for the George Washington University, the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy, the EU-Canada Young Journalist Award, and numerous EU-based structures while at the College of Europe Development Office)

design of large scale events

For instance initiated, designed (from graphic identity to the appointment of keynote speakers) and ran the 10th anniversary of the Development Office of the College of Europe.
