Before becoming an executive coach, I was responsible for designing and implementing robust employee engagement frameworks and communication strategies in a multilateral development institution, the Inter-American Development Bank. Before that, I served as an advisor to two French multinationals seeking to develop their automotive and energy businesses in Latin America. I have also worked in the academic sphere, building strategic partnerships for a French university aiming to solidify its brand internationally. With a highly multicultural background, I Work in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. My time in business and human resources contributed to my in-depth understanding of the various complexities senior executives face as well as what it means to transition from being a corporate professional to becoming an entrepreneur.
