Born and raised in France, I lived in Paris, Lisbon, London, Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City.
I worked 30 years as Senior Executive in corporate finance, strategy & investment, helping companies grow internationally and cross-culturally.
I am now a certified Integral Coach and my activity spans from South-East Asia to Europe
My journey to coaching
Over the course of my career, I did business on all 6 continents. Everywhere I went, in every person I met, the same human being was visible inside. What made people laugh, cry and strive for their children was everywhere the same.
I believe that our humanity is what unites people across nations, and also what
makes each of us unique in the world.
I enjoyed every bit of my career. One day, though, I admitted that money and social recognition were not going to be enough.
I met a coach and woke up to a different reality: one where life and business could be run in a human and fulfilling way.
So, I took a year-long certification course and became a coach.
Combining my business & coaching backgrounds, I help individuals and business leaders to activate their humanity inside—where truth, joy and compassion have their roots.
