Speaker on innovation

Anticipate change to transform it into opportunity

Practitioner, Speaker, Enthusiast

Entrepreneur, consultant and investor, I am passionate about innovation and vulgarisation. I give talks on the impact of technologies on business and society, to help organisations anticipate on major disruptions.

40 conferences given each year in Europe and around the world, in French and English


100% tailor-made talks, each event is different, each presentation should be too


0% jargon, technophile blindness, or fear of change

A digital technologies entrepreneur since the mid-1990s, I founded the Lift conference series and the digital agency 200ideas. Investor in twenty startups, I sit on the board of directors of Monito.com and Vanguard Internet.

Insatiably curious, addicted to unexpected encounters and new experiences, I have hosted TV and radio shows and written a series on the history of innovation broadcasted on Arte and SSR. You may also sometimes find me on the stage of a well known French-speaking humor festival.
