"I am the Research and Innovation director for a global business unit working for a chemical company.  I spent roughly 1 year being coached by Olivier in order to improve my management skills following a 360-feedback evaluation. I would confirm that the meetings with Olivier proved to be most useful in developing my listening and management skills. Certainly, my ability to tailor my management approach to fit both the individual profile and to fit the point at which the individual resides in their own career progression certainly has helped. "

" I am the Managing Partner of a Private Equity firm. In the context of the growth of our group, I had the opportunity to be coached by Olivier over a 12-month period. Olivier also facilitated work sessions with my management team around our organizational model.  In that context, he provided 360 feedback to all of us.  I particularly appreciated Olivier’s insights and his capacity to help me bring things into perspective and see them from a different angle.  He created a safe environment for me to open up and to develop my self-awareness. He also managed to have me translate my reflections into action steps and keep me accountable for them. I would definitely recommend Olivier as a coach for his experience, insights and the trust environment he creates."

“I am the Group CEO of a major UK retail chain. Whilst transitioning from the role of COO of Retail to the Group CEO role I had the opportunity to be coached by Olivier over a 12-month period. What I really appreciated with Olivier is his understanding of the challenges I faced in making this transition, working with me to appreciate and explore how to best understand and build a plan for a successful transition. I would definitely recommend Olivier; he is an experienced and seasoned professional who is passionate about helping people reach their potential.”

“I am the the COO of major national airline. I was coached by Olivier in 2019 and 2020 to consolidate my position as COO and prepare for potential new career steps. We worked closely with the CEO and the CHROD and other key stakeholders. The whole journey was a unique opportunity to pause and reflect on what has made my success so far, but also on my potential derailers. Olivier has been able to inspire me or challenge me when needed to help me become a better version of myself. He was able to understand and decode our organizational culture, my own business principles and my personal values guided by my religion. It was a particularly useful exercise especially in the transformation context that our company is going through”

"I benefited from accelerated coaching as part of a program offered by the Brussels Chamber of Commerce to entrepreneurs. The program included coaching offered by EMCC volunteers. I can say that it helped me a lot to clarify my beliefs and to work on my high values.  Olivier is an expert who knows how to put himself in your shoes! I was very impressed by how quickly he was able to figure me out!  The questions asked during the coaching are confronting and make me grow! Olivier is caring, is an active listener and knows how to move you forward. In short, he is a coach like I have rarely met: powerful and humble. I would recommend Olivier without hesitation to anyone who needs a co-pilot to get to your destination ".
