David Nemitz International Strategic Communications Consultants and Communications Professor at ESCE

Romain distinguished himself from the others students through his deliberate demeanor and quality work. Through out the course he demonstrated intellectual courage and curiosity. Without any encouragement from me, he frequently researched the subject matter far beyond the requirements of the course. This effort was routinely reflected in the outstanding caliber of his contributions to our class discussions. It is for this reason that I wholeheartedly recommend him for any opportunity that demands academic excellence and social savoir-faire.

Romain worked his way into the internship responsibilities very well and was able to act independently in a short period of time. He demonstrated personal dedication and was able to perform under pressure while completing his tasks effectively. In doing so, Romain gained deep insights into the Asia Pacific market and how Symrise does marketing in South East Asia.

Romain is reliable, highly capable and completed his tasks with utmost diligence and accuracy [...]. We would not hesitate to recommend Romain for any professional opportunity.
