Carole
Ballanfat

Project Launch Management & Communications

With more than 20 years experience in the field of communication, Carole started practicing her profession with an eclectic approach; first by working for large multinational corporations specialized in very cutting-edge fields, such as microelectronics, then in the Event industry for cultural establishments, such as the Cannes Film Festival, in which she has been involved every year for the past 27 years. Such versatility as well as her personal interests for public health induced her in 2002 to join the team at the FDI, an international organisation specialized in oral health. First, Carole worked in developing scientific programmes and promoting congresses, and then she became responsible for communications with the countries and member associations of the organisation. In 2011, she got involved in the fight against Noma - a neglected and preventable disease that affects severely undernourished children – by working for Winds of Hope, the Bertrand Piccard humanitarian Foundation where she was in charge of communications and involved in the management of projects during three years.

Through her personal interests, Carole has been and still is involved with many NGOs which has given her a vast knowledge of the administrative authorities, the civil society and institutional stakeholders to carry out international projects.
