Élan CONFERENCE

I was invited to participate in Élan, a conference organized by the SDE (Société Économique de Développement) to celebrate the Francophone Entrepreneurial movement in British Columbia.

It is a one-day conference where speakers, experts and panelists from across the country met. It was great to “remotely” take part of it and give my insights about the Millennials in the workplace, amongst other great information on the latest trends in technology, innovation, people management and sustainability. The video is in French.

FACEBOOK LIVE WITH AMBROISE DEBRET

I did a live interview with Ambroise Debret on Facebook recently and we had a wonderful time chatting with each other.

We talked about my experience as a digital nomad, my background, what I do now, how I got started, how I live as a nomad and some tips and tricks about living this lifestyle.

This one is in French again. I hope you'll find something useful out of it!

Enjoy!

The Power of Change: does change sets you in motion or paralyses you?

Last week, I participated in a lecture around the change in the brain, a very interesting discussion on the challenges of processing change. The lecture started with these 3 questions:

1)     What does change mean to you?

2)     When you hear the word change, what feelings come to mind?

3)     How often do you experience change in your life?

Everything is possible and it’s super fun!

Some of you may be very dubious about that because it can be scary to think that everything is possible. Thinking that everything is possible means that you don’t have any more excuses to make things happen, it also means that the world is open and that you can just pick and choose what’s best for you.

Entrepreneurial Life: A Fearless Roller Coaster Journey

Why is it important to me to become an entrepreneur? You don’t decide to become an entrepreneur because you want more freedom, more money or because you want to do things your way. You become an entrepreneur because you want to make an impact on your own little world. Your purpose is 100% connected to who you are, what motivates you, what sets you in motion. That’s what gives meaning and direction to your life. That’s what starts this fire in your belly to jump into entrepreneurship; this “gulp” feeling. - Click View Post to continue reading the article.
