Patrick Cohendet, Professor, Canada

“Françoise is one of the most talented researchers I have had the pleasure to work with. Her Ph.D on electricity supply in developing countries raised fundamental theoretical and practical issues in the domains of public/private partnerships and industrial organization. To these qualities Françoise adds outstanding capabilities in many domains: as a lecturer, a corporate trainer, a consultant and a professional coach.”

Delphine Carouge, PhD Epigenetics, Technology Transfer Manager, France

“I really enjoyed working with Francoise. Her coaching helped me at a key time in my life, returning from a rewarding postdoc in Epigenetics in the United States and looking to move to technology transfer and innovation. What I liked in Francoise’s coaching is the use of open-ended questions which is the best way for leading to self-discovery. Her coaching helped me identify my achievements, my strengths, my weaknesses and more importantly, it taught me how to see and therefore present these weaknesses in a positive way. I gained self-confidence and trust in my skills and abilities. I particularly appreciated Francoise’s availability and pragmatism, and her diverse knowledge and strong experience – academic, corporate and cross-cultural. “

Lise Roth, PhD Life Sciences, Germany

“Francoise has helped me transitioning from a successful 10 years international career in academia to new directions which match my new aspirations and ambitions. She perfectly knew how to support me to define my professional project and to become a credible candidate outside academia. In particular I appreciated her ability to tailor her style and approach to my profile and needs. Thanks to Francoise’s excellent coaching I gained greater awareness of who I am as a person and what my strengths and competencies are. By working on my weaknesses and on my stress levels I have restored my self-confidence, I have become more assertive and more persuasive. I strongly recommend Francoise to those who want to move out from academia and get help for a fresh start.”

Luc Gassman, Product Manager Consultant at GMN-Enterprises Advisory, Hong Kong

I had the chance to have Francoise as a teacher during my master degree. She is the kind of amazing teachers who guide you to find the answer by yourself instead of simply giving it. It makes a great difference in the learning process and it gives you a much deeper understanding of what she is teaching you. A few years later, I got back in touch with Francoise. I was then in a very unstable part of my life. Between jobs, in a new country and with a feeling of losing the focus on my personal and professional objectives. With the same methodology, Francoise guided me and helped me to ask myself the right questions and get a better understanding of the underlying reasons of my choices. I was able to clarify my objectives and take the right decisions which helped me move forward and find success and happiness.

Francoise gave me the structure and guidance to focus on my goals both personally and professionally. Francoise has the extraordinary ability to teach people how to compartmentalise and find clarity with all cognitive thoughts. Her professional coaching has made a significant impact on my life. She has equipped me with invaluable skills and tools that I need to continue my path towards success. I look forward to adding more value and personal development when working with Francoise in the future.
