MEET THE COMMUNITY: TALENT TESTIMONIES
Sabrine - Dubaï
During my time in the RLP, I had the chance to work and to learn from a strategic perspective and from the operational side when moving to retail which gave me a very wide vision and understanding of the overall business at Dior. My role allowed me the opportunity to handle 360° projects since I am involved in every single topic and project related to the life of the Boutique.
Thibault - Paris
Attending the Global Seminar was a unique experience to meet inspiring Leaders and discuss with them. We have the chance to work with our peers on a real business case and to present it to the Dior Top Management in order to get their valuable feedback. It is also the chance to meet fellow RLP colleagues and share about our passion for the Maison.
Alexandre - Paris
During my studies, I had a great interest in Finance and Accounting, but also several retail experiences in sales. I first joined LVMH’s internal audit department and after three years I joined the RLP which has allowed me to re-enter and transition smoothly back into the retail environment as Manager. I have learned to manage a department, to do floor management and be a reference for every team member.
Corinna - Munich
Through the RLP, I moved from the flagship store in Düsseldorf to the Dior Boutique in Zurich, Switzerland. It was not only a move from one country to another, but also from a high traffic flagship to a medium size Boutique, which gave me multiple perspectives. The program has truly enriched and refined my skills as a manager, and it has inspired me to live the DIOR dream and transmit the Maison's vision to others on a daily basis.
Marie - Paris
I worked as International Brand Manager for Moët & Chandon before joining the Dior RLP. The transition between the two business units was smooth thanks to a step-by-step onboarding, based on a close relationship with my operational manager, training, shadowing, assisting and then taking the lead.
Nancy - London
Attending the Global Seminar provided an exciting platform to share our success and best practices from our own Boutiques. Prior to it, we partook in a Case Study project with colleagues across EMEA. For the project and presentation to come to life in the seminar just reignited our passion and personal development within the business. The seminar truly creates long lasting relationships which all of us will take forward within the next stage of our Dior Careers.
