Speakers

Director of Operations and Growth, Island Innovation

Audrey Joachim

I joined Island Innovation in 2020 in order to lead the efforts on the internal operations with the customers, sponsors, the Island Finance Forum and the Virtual Island Summit. What I love about Island Innovation is that we share the same values to make this world a better place by putting all the islands together to find solutions to meet the UN development goals. I believe that it is through combining our knowledge that we will have the most impact.

I have a Master’s Degree in Communication and Marketing, and a Bachelor of Business Degree from the University of Paris, and worked in both Silicon Valley and India. The exposure to different cultures and mindsets has made me very resilient and that’s a quality that I’m very proud of.

I live in Guadeloupe, a French island in the Caribbean where I like to spend my time gardening, hiking, swimming in the ocean. Equality and innovation are topics that I care deeply about which is why I am constantly involved in philanthropy and get involved as a speaker by organizations to talk about gender equality and LGBT+ inclusion.
