Projects

Organization of Toastmasters event for my club (the only French speaking club in Luxembourg) + delivery of a speech
Stress management workshop.

Entrepreneurial Endeavors

Decided to start on my own mid 2018. In order to increase my visibility and get my name out there, I’ve been posting regularly on Linkedin and Facebook for almost 2 years. I’ve also attended different networking events in Luxembourg and delivered a few workshops. I am still trying to get more clients, speaking engagements to help people.

The “Why” Factor

I’ve always wanted to help people. Since business is getting more and more global, and since I have a huge experience in leading international (virtual) teams, I want to share my knowledge and experience so that people do not have to re-invent the wheel and so that they can optimize their potential.
I can deliver workshops, training, speeches in different languages ensuring the same experience for employees around the globe.
