Hey there !
My name is Cynthia-Laure Etom,


I am a Fashion Stylist & a Speaker, who helps women to enhance themselves, by working with them, on their personal image.

Long story short, I define myself as an Artist. Daily, I play with words, fashion styles and fabrics, in order to help my clients to stand out professionnaly. And at an intimate realm, I provide them with the necessary tools to (re) gain confidence and be unique. My mission is to work hand in hand with women, in the definition of their brand and the enhancing of themselves.

Graduated in communication from the prestigious School of Communication : EFAP, I am a Publicist and the proud CEO of CLE*UP PUBLICIST Agency since 2011. 

In 2016, CLE*UP Publicist Agency starts focussing on Brand / Image Consulting. After a professional experience in the luxury sector, I have been then more aware of the impact of the image over people. Then, I decided to promote self-confidence and the courage of being ourselves, thanks to image consulting.


Furthermore, I am an expert on the place and the image of women in the media. I am the Founder and President of WIF – FRANCEthe French Federation of Women working In Film, Television and Digital industries. WIF – FRANCE is a feminist, not for profit organisation. And a gender equality advocate. My mission with WIF – FRANCE is to showcase the work of french and francophone women working in audiovisuel and digital.

In 2017, I left Paris for New York City, where I enrolled in the Kauffman Foundation’s Business Class. During that time I develop an organisation that evolved later in a community called :IM NOT A FRAUD !“.
A real boost for people lacking of confidence.
Many people feel like, they are not worthy of success, or that their ideas are not worthy of interest. After 30 years of cohabitation with this feeling, I discovered that it has a name : “Impostor syndrome”. 


End of 2018, I move to Toronto, where I work for CBC / Radio Canada. My Torontonian experience’s allowed me to improve my writing skills for : radio, TV, web and print news.

Also, as a certified speaker, (you can find my profile here A-Speakers and there : Expertes Francophones), my areas of expertize :

  • Gender equality, 
  • Women Empowerment
  • Feminism, Diversity,
  • The role of women within the Film, Television and Digital industries,
  • Women leadership,
  • Professional and personal image,

While in New-York City, in 2017, I had the opportunity to follow a training over gender equality at the United Nations (UN) in order to broaden my knowledges over the topic.
