Pauline C., Trade Marketing Manager, Food industry - Coaching for a new position
I worked with Monique 4 months to coach me for a new job in the same company, but with more responsibilities and management challenges. After a 1st step to better known my skills and weaknesses, we worked on using those to strengthen my leadership skills. Then we worked each session to discuss & resolve a specific challenge. What I really appreciate with Monique is, she doesn’t impose its view but help you to find your proper ways to adapt.

Monique has been instrumental in helping me to drive the managers she was coaching towards different behaviours. her past experience as executive herself and her pragmatism made it possible to see relevant changes in these executives’ hehaviours even in a short period of time. She followed up very effectively both with the people and the direct managers and her feedback has been really precious.
I would recommend Monique to whoever should need a very organized and action oriented coaching and hope to work with her again in the future."

Monique offered an insightful and challenging approach to some of the key areas I wanted to tackle as a woman in a senior position within a large FMCG company. She supported me in really peeling back the root causes of my key obstacles and helped me in targeting the right actions to rectify. As she has the practical experience herself from working in such a business environment the discussions were highly practical and actionable. I would highly recommend her, particularly for women working in the tough FMCG world.

Tailor-made programmes - Leadership & management
Matthieu M., HR Business Partner, consumer goods sector.
Monique designed and facilitated a comprehensive programme to all of our managers on how to deliver an effective feedback.
Initially briefed on a training, we highly appreciated her suggestion to build a long-lasting initiative : the programme lasted 6 months and was made of training workshops, peer coaching and regular e-newsletters and videos. This was key to raise awareness and build a stronger Feedback Culture.
Anne P., HR Business Partner, food industry.
We experienced the workshop "impact & influence transversally". We appreciated the relevance of Monique's input, during the workshop and between the 2 sessions ( with articles, web conferences, etc...). Participants liked the very concrete and operational examples they've been able to share and discuss during the 2nd session . It created a nice emulation within the team. We recommend this workshop!
