About the trainer:

Never trust assumptions… “Are you Belgian?” is a question I am sometimes asked because I speak Dutch fluently, but with a soft accent. This shows that you should never trust assumptions! Actually, I am originally French, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Living abroad has significantly shaped my identity and makes it sometimes difficult to guess where I am from. That’s the magic of culture: it is invisible, however, one can feel its complex influence on the person standing in front of you. "On many occasions, I have felt the hidden magic of culture at work for better or worse." With a background in communications (MC’s in Communications at Celsa-Sorbonne), I have worked for more than 10 years in various international companies. During those years I have been lucky enough to have lived in France, the US and the Netherlands and to have worked extensively with many different European countries. On many occasions, I have felt the hidden magic of culture at work for better or worse. Some hilarious moments or stressful conflicts seemed to originate from something that no one was properly addressing: cultural differences. As an IRC-certified cross-cultural trainer and coach, I help individuals and teams to develop greater self-awareness and cross-cultural effectiveness for better work performance and more individual happiness. My goal is to help people enjoy their journey across cultures. And when I see genuinely curious eyes or excited faces in my training or coaching sessions, I know the journey has all been very much worth it.
