Before a dream came true with the foundation of Julia Schuchardt Communications, I gained more than ten years' work experience in international marketing and (online) communications working for the Philips group.
Right after graduation I became a Marketing Assistant and was promoted to Product Marketing Manager at Philips Speech Processing. Positions as Junior Manager Online Media for Philips Germany and finally eMarketing Manager General X-ray at Philips Healthcare followed. I always enjoyed working in an international communications environment.
My family and I lived in Abu Dhabi, UAE, for five years, during which time I focused on voluntary work at the German International School.
When we moved back to Germany from Abu Dhabi, I continued to be responsible for maintaining the Emma with Love website. As a result, I became increasingly keen to support freelancers, as well as small and medium-sized companies, in their online communications efforts - the foundation stone for Julia Schuchardt Communications.
My international business studies focused on international marketing, business English and business French. I have fond memories of my time abroad at the La Rochelle Business School (Ecole Supérieure de Commerce La Rochelle) in France, and of my time as a Business French tutor at the Fachhochschule Düsseldorf. Both experiences helped me deepen my knowledge of English and French in addition to my mother tongue, German.
Although I am not originally from Hamburg, I really enjoy living here with my family. Sometimes I wish there were more than 24 hours in a day, as I put my heart and soul into my family and my work, but also need time to enjoy travelling, music, the theatre and baking.
