As an engineer, I like to understand a subject in its entirety to produce a simple and efficient solution!

    Eric’s favorite company value: Think Smart, Play Hard

    Fun Fact about Eric: “Among my colleagues, I’m often teased about greens because I ate tons of them on my diet in 2012. That’s how I got the nickname Mr. Broccoli.😄

    After graduating from high school, Asmaa left her hometown of Rabat to study in France at the University of Aix-Marseille. “I lived in Aix-en-Provence until 2012, then moved to Marseille to pursue my Master’s degree at the school of journalism and communication.” Looking to perfect her e-marketing skills, she joined VirtualExpo Group’s marketing department for her end-of-study internship.

    Favorite company value: “Proud of your Success” because for a long time I suffered from the “impostor syndrome” which prevented me from living up to my full potential in my professional and personal life. With a lot of patience, commitment and the support of my managers, I was able to build up my self-confidence.

    Fun Fact: “I’m the influencer in our marketing department. I created my blog in 2014 with a deep desire to transmit, through the art of living, the values of my native Morocco. I pay special attention to my coworkers who follow me and who interact with my Instagram page, especially on my Friday publications: #FridayCouscousDay 🙂
