About Me

CIO in international context, I'm passionate by technologies, digital and entrepreneurship. I have the chance to experience Digital transformation in different department of the company and countries (US - China - Malaysia - and many countries in Europe)

Creating value in business through the information system and digital, and new technologies, combined with a panel of expertise: change management, expertise in complex information system, organization and set up governance, passionate for innovation. Without forgetting a good entrepreneurial spirit and boundless enthusiasm.
Improving my knowledge other MOOC, I'm certified in Bi-Modal IT and Marketing Digital and following different MOOC in Design Thinking. I'm getting it in practice by setting and leading the IT to a more efficient process and enable companies to get in a digital world.

As background in sport in everything I'm doing, I'm looking for Excellence and I keep in mind the Aristotle quote : "Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."

Liberate my co-workers and giving them more responsibility, I bring happiness and a better state of mind, making everyone more efficient in an agile governance. I'm looking for new opportunities, how can I help you out?

Feel free to contact me.

Winning companies, such as Apple, Virgin, Toyota and others, innovate continuously because of their culture of design thinking—integrating the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success. In this course, you will learn how to take a similar approach in your own business—blending the perspectives of marketing, design and engineering into a systematic approach to delivering innovation.


This Specialization will help you switch from a top-down leadership, with the emphasis on authority, to an open leadership based on trust and sense.
This new approach of leadership, taught to HEC MBA’s student and top executives, encourages relationships between people in spite of their differences of opinion and enables better team leadership.
The Savoir-Relier protocol is based on more than 25 years of research and practice. It has been implemented with positive impact on individual and teams in companies like Apple, L'Oréal, LVMH, Sanofi or Pernod Ricard for example.
Just as them, as an executive, manager or individual, you will practice the Savoir-Relier method and discover that when done with courage, empathy, humility and resilience, it stimulates creative initiatives, and creates meaning to foster action and results. It will help you to overcome difficult situations with resilience and navigate complex systems.
You will explore your own leadership style through conversations with your peers, and acquire the necessary self-confidence to make good decisions based on the opinions and ideas of others, even if they are contradictory
You will also hear perspectives on leadership from outstanding leaders such as an Olympic athlete, business executives, and other distinguished guest speakers.
In the final Capstone Project, you will apply the skills you have grown and the models you have learned to address and overcome a personal leadership challenge.
