After studying Chinese, Florence started her career in Hong Kong, focusing on people management in a highly customer-centric, multicultural head-hunting firm. Returning to France four years later, she deepened her expertise and added assessment skills at Michael Page and Kienbaum.

She supports companies in two main areas:

  • leadership development and talent management optimization through developing competencies and leveraging motivation;
  • and HR strategic planning in alignment with business strategy, focusing on the human impact of transformations serving collective intelligence and engagement.
