‘Our leadership team was composed of people with strongly divergent views on the priorities and purpose of the business.

Her approach is never stifling and despite the seriousness of some of the challenges raised, she effortlessly brings humour and warmth into the dialogue.’ VP Sales, software industry.

I recommend Francoise’s coaching services.’ Stella Collins, Creative Director, author of ‘Neuroscience for Learning and Development’, UK

‘Françoise is one of the most talented researchers I have had the pleasure to work with.

To these qualities Françoise adds outstanding capabilities in many domains: as a lecturer, a corporate trainer, a consultant and a professional coach.’ Patrick Cohendet, Professor, HEC Montreal, Canada
‘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.’ Luc Gassman, product management professional, Hong Kong

‘Françoise understands project management and expatriates’ challenges in global industries. Her thorough and driven attention to detail, as well as her ability to coach in my native language, made her executive and cross-cultural coaching practical, effective and measurable.’ Jean-Michel Schwartz, Process & Tool Engineer, USA
‘Thanks to Francoise’s expatriate coaching, I was able to identify my personal traits, values, key and transferable skills that differentiate me from others.’ Isabelle Hinkel, PhD Life Sciences and Innovation, Master’s Degree IPI Engineering in Innovative Projects, Australia
‘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.
