Speaking & Workshops
A different perspective
Before becoming a Parenting coach, I was in leadership roles, having led the development of several successful companies on three continents. I had also taken several courses on leadership, particularly during my MBA at INSEAD.
When I studied the science of parenting and the latest research in neuroscience and child rearing, I discovered that it had so much in common with the best practice in leadership. This new perspective actually made so much sense: parenting is about helping our children flourish and thrive and this is also the role of leaders within their organisations.
This means that many of the common sense techniques that we use in the workplace to better lead teams are the same that we should be using at home. The challenge was to put these common sense techniques into ‘common practice’ and this is what I set out to achieve.
I decided to dedicate my life to sharing transformational knowledge and tools with other ‘normal’ parents like me, and particularly in the workplace.
My interventions are perfectly tailored to large audiences and to the corporate world as they are based on a programme of very practical and easy to apply tools that have immediate effect, and therefore have a significant impact on parents’ family lives.
Typical session format:
- Large seminars: from a few dozen to hundreds of attendees. Usually last for one hour.
- Workshops: these are more intimate and more interactive, and go deeper in the learning. They are often longer and last from one hour to a whole day. These can also involve children in some settings.
- Panels & Interviews
The feedback from the event has been so positive, your workshop really resonated with so many of our members. There was a lot of ‘take home value’ as we like to say and they’re a tough crowd to please! Thank you for making it a wonderful event.

My upcoming book
Raising my three children reminds me every day that we need to stop operating out of fear and guilt as parents and as a society in general. Do we want our kids to be happy and confident or do we want to reproduce a cycle of fear and guilt for the next generations to come? How can our children understand the importance of things that seem so important to us but seem so mundane to them? And more importantly, why do we keep wanting them to be so good and even ‘perfect’ while the whole world is crumbling in this pandemic?!
