Employee Spotlight on Emeline D'Amore

Our next employee spotlight focuses on Emeline D’Amore.

How long have you worked at Walpole Partnership?
I joined the Walpole ‘family’ in November 2020, so about a year and a half ago.

What’s your role at Walpole Partnership?
I am a Project Delivery Manager, and work alongside Ingmar on French-speaking projects.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Excellent question! I still wonder…Actually, I don’t remember ever saying “When I grow up, I’ll be this or that”. However, as a teenager, I knew exactly what I wasn’t going to be and that was a scientist. I was too bad at maths to go in that direction!

What do you consider to be your greatest achievement?
Do I have to choose only one? Because I have at least five personal successes: four children and a wonderful husband who has always pushed me further than my confidence would allow. It is thanks to him that I am where I am today and that my retraining and career change continues to be a success. His encouragement and full belief in me gave me the courage to go beyond the limits I had set for myself.

What can you be found doing in your spare time?
I can be found learning to play a piece of music I like, or improvising on the guitar. I also like to recycle objects and transform them into other things (notably pallets into furniture etc…) And at the moment, with the return of the good weather, I can also be found in the garden enjoying the sun and a good BBQ with my family.

What one skill would you love to have or learn to do?
More than learning a new skill, I’m thinking of improving the ones I already have and becoming fully fluent in English.

If you could time travel, where would you go?
The roaring 1920s. I like the way this post-war period celebrated life with a new-found insouciance and freedom through musical, artistic and cultural enthusiasm. I also love the elegance of the clothes from that period. There is a little touch of madness, cleverly hidden in simplicity and style.

What one thing really annoys you?
Conflict of any kind – it’s negative and it doesn’t help anyone grow or progress.

What is your favourite film of all time?
I don’t necessarily have a favourite film. I’m pretty diverse in what I watch. But if I really have to choose one, I would say “Le diner de cons”.

Sweet or savoury?
Savoury, without hesitation. In France, we have an extremely wide choice of cheese varieties. All accompanied by a piece of ‘baguette’ from the baker’s oven and a glass of french wine of course! But I might have to break that cliché by saying that I much prefer sweet white wine to a glass of dry red!
