in 2009 I founded together with Nicolas Vuignier an event called “Survival of the Fittest”. After having competed in many competitions myself, I decided to build a new freestyle contest, with an original and creative concept.
With zero experience in event organisation, I had to face all the challenges linked to that type of project. Creating a solid concept, with a good financial plan and attractive sponsorship solutions was one of the hardest task I had to achieve at first. Thanks to a very good network in the freestyle scene, I manage to put down with very small budget, one of the greatest freestyle show of the winter. After the success of the first installement, the “Survival of the Fittest” kept on growing and became one of the most expected event of the winter.
Being the Event Director improved my organisation skills and forced me to consider every side of a project. I built myself an experience in Press relations and Media management, while keeping a very creative view and the ability to give birth to fresh and successfull ideas. An attractive project presentation aswell as a sharp vision of the local landscape were required to convince sponsors, resorts, athletes and medias.
