Julien Delpy
Director - Paperjam Club

    What is your role at Maison Moderne?

    I’m in charge of running the Paperjam Business Club. I’m responsible for the club’s development strategy, for supervising the programme and producing our events, as well as for coordinating relations with our members and partners.

    I head a team of dedicated employees working in three areas (programme development, production, member relations). This allows members to develop their professional and personal networks, to keep in touch with the market and its players, to gain and share any feedback and to upgrade their skills and experience via the large range of events offered by us and our training sessions.

    What do you like most about your job?

    Above all, I like the daily variety that comes with my work. Nothing is routine and it’s all very exciting.

    What was your dream job when you were a child?

    When I was a child, I was always attracted by medical professions: first I wanted to be a doctor and then a physiotherapist; but then I tore my cruciate ligaments playing rugby and developed an aversion to hospitals.

    The passion that drives you?

    Professionally, I feel very close to my customers. It’s crucial for me not just to satisfy their immediate needs, but also to do that little bit more. Over the years, I have developed a sixth sense for listening to customer needs.

    On a more personal level, I’m in love with the whole world of wine.

    What would you tell to your friends to make them visit Luxembourg?

    The country is an extraordinary mixture, offering a strong local culture but also an incredible concentration of different cultures. The people here are open and welcoming, and the gastronomy here is world-class. Like me, people here in Luxembourg are epicureans, as you can see.

    Your favourite restaurant out of the 250 listed in Explorator?

    My No. 1 restaurant is undoubtedly Elch. It’s the first place I had lunch at on arriving here and I was given a superb welcome, whether with regard to the setting or the food.
