Director of Corporate Relations and Communications at Beşiktaş Municipality

I was born in Istanbul in 1986. I received my associate degree in Public Relations and bachelor degree in Advertising and my MA in Marketing Communication (Brand School) from Istanbul Bilgi University.

I specifically focused on political communication during my MA and conducted a project on Brexit – the withdrawal process of United Kingdom from the European Union. I took coordinator role at Bahçeşehir University – Directorate of Corporate Communications during the foundation process of the office and developed the first corporate social media strategy in Turkey. I managed the communication and coordination processes at The Board of Trustees Office – Istanbul Bilgi University. 

Since 2016 I have been working as corporate communication director in national and 
international corporations after gaining expertise in the areas of crisis management, political communication, corporate relations and business development. I worked as Business Development and Communication Director at London Speaker Bureau Turkey which is the largest speaker agency and lobbying organization in the world. Currently, I am the Director of Corporate Relations and Communication at Beşiktaş Municipality. Our communication campaigns gained several awards (MIXX, Social Media Awards, Felis and Kristal Elma) so far. In 2020, I also took PR jury role in Felis Awards.
