Passionate about teaching, I now dedicate most of my time giving back to the younger generation the experience I acquired throughout two amazing decades at the forefront of complexity in Finance, having faced the most thrilling booming markets … and also the deepest turmoils in Financial Markets.

My 20-year career in Finance has all been about building teams and systems, integrating complex businesses, leading change and innovation, embracing new clients, new products and new technologies.

The challenges continue in my teaching and coaching ventures, where I get my clients, my students and my teaching partners to embrace new market environments, new technologies, new regulatory frameworks and new types of jobs.

Educated in France and Japan, having worked in Tokyo, Paris, London and Frankfurt (for European, American and Australian Fortune 500 companies), and now teaching in Paris, Beijing and Tokyo, I am at ease with local cultures, clients, authorities and markets.
Multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-national, I operate globally or locally, and feel at home interacting with global organisations, having matrix reporting and international management.

My current study fields include: Finance 2.0, FinTech, Cryptography and Blockchain technology, as well as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence applications in Finance.
