• About Me

    For the past 20 years, I have built three sets of skills: Professional Training, AGILE Project Management and Educational Technology Management. My purpose is to coach productive attitudes and build up skills in the easiest, fastest, most valuable and most engaging way.

    A French and Swiss national, I believe in humility, active listening, competence-building and continuous improvement through empirical creativity. And I think that discipline, focus, perseverance and a healthy tolerance for failure are crucial elements of success.
