Thinking strategically to build impactful digital products that deliver tangible value for users.
Béatrice Mercier has been working at the intersection of public policy and tech for over 6 years. Passionate about ensuring government delivers the highest quality services to the public, Béatrice has put to use her experience as a Product Manager both to build digital services in partnership with government agencies (launching over 12 new products in the last 4 years), and increasingly, to advocate for a shift in the way government builds digital services, creating an agile « product-first » culture within government teams. Béatrice has worked for the last four years for the French Government’s Digital Department, specifically for the beta.gouv.fr program which champions digital entrepreneurship within the French government, training government officials with specific policy expertise to act as Product Managers in order to build bespoke digital services. In her role, Béatrice has trained over 10 government officials as Product Managers, and assembled and supervised 12 cross-functional digital teams. Béatrice holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Institute for Political Study (Sciences Po) in Paris, France, and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Oxford University.
