WILD GEESE IN V FORMATION
They say wild geese fly in V formation to enhance lift and reduce drag. Flying together burns less energy than going alone. We believe the same goes for people: a team that gets strong with individuals who trust each other will always go further.
How do we help companies transform people into teams? With energy and empowerment for the employees, structure and transparency for the management.
Our energy is lively and fiery, like our logo.
OUR RAISON D'ÊTRE
That's what we believe in and bring with us to any company we work with.
WHO'S BEHIND MARKETROTTERS?
Maïté Grisard (aka May): Energy Ball
Graduated with honors from HEC business school of the University of Liège, Belgium (2007), I then worked in Logistics, e-Commerce, IT and Pro Audio. After 5 years of being an employee, I decided to become a freelancer in sales & marketing. I started in Canada where I worked with startups in Montreal and Ottawa then came back to Belgium a year later. I entered the healthcare sector and worked on a mobile application made to facilitate collaborative health records. Two years later, I started testing my work concept of Marketrotters and officially created the company on March 1st 2018.
I worked in various sectors including Finance, Electronics, Non-Profit, IT, eLearning, Housing Services, Jewelery, and more. My skills are in people empowerment, regardless of the industry. I think innovation and team work can be found in any industry as long as people are respected and given responsibilities (and the means to get things done).
I live in the future. I have a strong sense of integrity.
I wrote an article on Linkedin at the start of the company to explain why these fiery wild geese came into life.

Virginie Chantry (aka Gi): Multifaceted Star
PhD in Space Science from the University of Liège, Belgium (December 2009), I worked for several years as a researcher in Astrophysics. I then decided to leave the research field, feeling the need to evolve in an environment where social contacts and creativity are essential.
Skilled in Science Outreach, Copywriting, Event Planning, Cooking and Languages (English, Italian, Spanish & French), I am also a big fan of movies, music and WIX websites. Very fond of good food, stars and space in general, I am always in search of magic and adventure. Three words that define me: creativity, curiosity and adaptability. I also love to travel and I have a huge crush on Québec, New Zealand and Chile, 3 countries I had the chance to experience during mid-term stays.
Immaginative and resourceful, I can adapt to any kind of situations as shown by my work experience in miscellaneous fields, from cinema and music to science and academic research through food, sales and journalism. A plus: I have frequently taken in charge the planning and management of events for different voluntary associations and companies, which puts into perspective my sense of responsibility, methodical mind and my obsession for structure and organization.
