Isabelle was also the editor of the Gunn Report for Media, which combines the winners lists from all of the world’s most important award contest, thus to establish the annual worldwide league tables for the communications industry in terms of media creativity, i.e the best agencies, the best networks, the most awarded advertisers…according to the consensus judgement of the juries serving at the world’s top shows.

Before CB News, she used to work for the economics and financial press including La Vie Financière (ex Vie Française) and l’Expansion. She was also a correspondent for the European Magazine Media & Marketing Europe and occasionally wrote for Advertising Age.
