RISING PINEAPPLES 2020 - #MEBEYOND
The second edition of Rising Pineapples took place on March 8th 2020 and gathered about 120 participants. Our Theme for this year was #MEBEYOND. An inspiring line up of female leaders and experience workshop facilitators from a variety of backgrounds, industries and fields of work led the group to explore the importance of knowing oneself and expressing one's beliefs or aspirations despite of social pressure and also offered some keys to use one's unique talents to change beyond: beyond nay-sayers, beyond your own fear, beyond your dreams!

“It was amazing. The theme this year was #Mebeyond and I just thought it went beyond everything that I expected, I loved it!“ - Lisa P.
I'm a working mum of 4 kids, decidedly European : born French, lived long in Amsterdam and now in Berlin. I believe that the world has been created with men and women for a reason : we are different and our differences contribute to make the world a better place.
I have been working for the last 20 years in the Digital industry and I'm happy we are getting more tools to connect people.
But nothing gets better than connecting and exchanging live ! My true hope is that this conference will be a starting point for you into a sisterhood that will lift you up beyond what you can ever imagine.
I love it when people come together to share their experiences and learn from one another. On a day-to-day basis, I co-run Root Cause, a brand strategy and design agency that helps brands grow by discovering and delivering on their social promise.
I’m a European citizen and have called Berlin my home for more than five years. Ever since I moved here, I have been involved with its vibrant startup scene, first working at Rocket Internet and then at Zalando. When I’m not playing with my dog 'Pancakes', I spend my free time advocating for digital literacy and diversity in tech. My mission is to provide you with anything you need to kick ass beyond for this year’s conference. I can’t wait to meet you!
People say I am a bundle of energy, and energy is indeed what I need to take care of my 2 young children while working full time. I am French, born in Benin and grew up within a large family nurtured by strong and inspiring women from both sides.
I started my career in the field of Marketing 12 years ago and have since helped build multiple successful lifestyle, cosmetic, and tech brands . In my role as a leader, I have always encouraged in particular female colleagues to reach for greater visibility and impact in the organisations I worked at, and believe the value of women’s support networks is limitless. Having been a participant in the first edition of Rising Pineapples conference, I am thrilled to join the orga team this year!
I was born in South of France and grew up in Berlin and I'm currently finishing my Master in Entrepreneurship. I'm all for sustainability, alternative consumption and positive environmental impact. How to make such values and business goals work together is my primary focus.
The energy during first edition of Rising Pineapples would make anyone want to come back: It's powerful, healthy, truly kind and really helpful. It was so inspirational and empowering for me, I cannot wait to see the second edition happen and to welcome you into the movement!
