Candice is a child of the world, with various chapters of her life set in four different continents, providing strong international experience and understanding of different cultures.
With both agency and in-house experience, Candice is committed to doing work that drives a positive global impact.
Her most recent experience saw her make a leap into the future, developing the brand and communications strategies for emerging technology start-up, Everledger, as it rapidly scaled in its work specialising in high-value asset provenance tracking using blockchain technology. This has given her experience driving innovation in the diamond, coloured gemstones, jewellery, wine and art industries, while focused on sustainability and responsible business practices.
Additionally, she also has a strong background in travel & tourism, and her career includes heading the Communications department in the ASX-listed Regional Express group of companies. This has given her unique experience in a highly-regulated work environment with crisis communications being one of her key responsibilities.
The hotel industry beckoned next where she joined the PR & Communications department in the Sydney head office of AccorHotels, the world's leading travel & lifestyle group. She worked with hotel brands from economy and midscale to upscale and luxury in the portfolio.
Thereafter, she set out on her own with consultancy, Espoir PR & Communications, continuing to work across Australia and Europe.
Qualified with a Business Management degree, with double majors in Marketing & Law from Singapore Management University, Candice understands the synergies between brand, marketing, PR and communications. Dynamic, dedicated, adaptable, adventurous, astute and full of intellectual curiosity, she will bring the much-needed injection of excellent communications expertise to your brand.
She is passionate about many things including tech, sustainability, travel, wine, cooking, music, sports, beaches and speaks three languages – English, Mandarin and French. She is currently based between Sydney and Paris, working across the US, EMEA, UK, Australia and Asia regions.
