Our differentiation

Societal and environmental impact



Our structure defines who we are:

  • Individual & collective impact

  • Business driven focus

  • Company DNA compatibility

Audrey Hanssen

Audrey Hanssen accompanies executives to mobilize all their resources in order to adapt effectively to the complexity of their environment. By committing them to leave their comfort zone, it allows them to put an end to mechanisms and conditioning that have become limiting. She acts as a facilitator to transform anchored and inadequate strategies into a dynamic that promotes the emergence of new solutions.

Audrey’s coaching services are only provided in French.


Nathalie Ville

Nathalie Ville accompanies executives (and high level athletes) to help them discover new resources within themselves so that they can evolve with authenticity, agility and creativity. The originality of her approach lies in the possible combination of coaching sessions in the Paris region with sessions (one or two days) in Biarritz, to encourage stepping back from complex situations.

Nathalie’s coaching services are only provided in French.


Laurent Chouraqui

Passionate about accompanying men and women in their professional roles, Laurent has been coaching since 2009.
