After a long career as a professional athlete and coach in France, 9 years in the US working for NGO’s, Isabelle landed in Asia and is now the chief Operating Officier of the Malaysian company Global Connector Capital.
Isabelle brings people together with collaborative projects. She provides a quality engagement for her clients. She is highly motivated, strives to always exceed the expectations that are asked of her.
In the US, Isabelle worked to create awareness and help organisations raise funds in both Cambodia and the US to support their fight(s) against the cause. She also assisted teams of volunteers, donors, institutions, partners, celebrities, and artists – interested in collaboration, by connecting them to each other in order to build like-minded communities that shared best practices and opportunities.
As ED of together1heart, a nonprofit organization fighting sex trafficking and human slavery in Cambodia, Isabelle helped to increase global awareness, strengthen volunteer engagement and help to drive donor participation and funding. During her time at T1H, she helped to support and develop programming that included; rescuing young girls – more than 7,000+ to date; prevention outreach – 5,000+ sex workers and more than 1million condoms distributed; and survivor rehabilitation – 250 survivors with vocational training to start small businesses.
She currently is an advisor to New Light Kolkata, an India-based organization that promotes gender equality through education and life skill training, and helps to reduce violence and abuse against women and children. She also helps different NGO’s in Cambodia, providing free services in communication and development. She aspires to inspire other to give back to communities in needs.
Isabelle believes in ‘the ripple effect’ and that by creating a community of like- minded “do-ers”, each doing their small part and “lending a hand”, it will help to ensure that a child, to a family, then a community will become more empowered, sufficient and sustainable.
