Nowadays, with the many political and societal changes, security, economic, and climate-related risks, and the ecological transition we are all facing, it is essential for organizations to have the necessary skills to bounce back quickly and smoothly.
Twenty years of experience in the Physical Security & Resilience (Crisis Management & Business Continuity) Industry, at both global and local level positions, have allowed me to develop an acute and systemic vision of Corporate Resilience, which is the capability to face the unforeseen, the unknown and change.
Equally trained in Coaching, psychology and cognitive sciences, I take heed of the human aspects, putting forth active listening, genuine partnership, and sense of responsibility at the center of my methodology, which for me are prime elements allowing to get efficient and sustainable results.
My objective is to offer my clients the possibility to build a wholesome and balanced resilient system, while taking into consideration the various corporate functions, as well as environmental, community-based and social aspects, so that companies and their employees remain committed, inspired and empowered in the long run. This approach yields more operational and tactical efficiency.

Confidence isn't optimism or pessimism, and it's not a character attribute.
It's the expectation of a positive outcome.

it is for failing to help or ask for help.
