Work with me
I am a Paris-based writer and event producer with a background in marketing communications (more about me). Since launching Jetting Around in 2010, I have partnered on brand awareness campaigns with tourism boards, global travel companies, fashion designers, and non-profit organizations. By working with me, you can reach a dedicated audience of over 40,000 travel and culture enthusiasts.
Previous collaborators: Visit Ljubljana, Valencia Tourism, Viking River, Rail Europe, Skyscanner, Ryanair, CheapOAir, Flytographer, Anywhere Apparel, Jia Collection, Greenheart Travel, Pink Pangea.
My writing focuses on urban travel and expat life, covering a range of topics: food, wine, fashion, sports, culture, languages. I offer features on Jetting Around (press trip coverage, branded narratives) and content for your website. Previous media credits include CNN, MasterCard, Expedia, and others.
Social Media Promotion
Among the options are branded Facebook posts, Instagram takeovers, product giveaways, and Twitter chats. I could host your party or you could sponsor mine – here’s information about #JAchat.
“We loved sponsoring #JAchat for their European Cities edition! It was a great way to promote some of our most popular destinations, along with the train tickets and rail passes that connect travelers to those cities. We had chatters participating from all over the world and we still see interaction from many of the participants on our Twitter feed today, many months after the chat. We will definitely do another #JAchat in the near future!”
Jacqueline DesForges, Social Media Community Manager – Rail Europe, Inc.
Another way to connect with my community is offline. For several years, I have hosted networking meetups JA Café: Travel Talk Over Coffee in Europe and North America. In my former hometown Chicago, I produced the 2016 Travel and Language Festival and annual Meaningful Travel Events, aimed at promoting social impact trips. In addition to event participation, you’d be featured in online coverage.
Public Speaking and Workshops
As an event host and language trainer, I am no stranger to public speaking. I’ve been interviewed on international radio and TV (WBEZ Chicago, TVP Polonia Warsaw), presented at the 2015 TBEX travel conference in Spain, co-hosted a webinar for aspiring bloggers, and participated in a panel about social media at an entrepreneurship center in Chicago.
I am available to speak on various topics – tourism, expat life, international relations, influencer marketing, personal brand development – in four languages: English, Polish, Spanish and (increasingly) French.
If you need a large-scale influencer campaign, you may benefit from working with The Travel Mob. We are a team of writers and video bloggers, traveling together and promoting destinations to our vast combined audience. Since 2014, we have partnered with several tourism boards in Europe (case studies available).
