MY BACKGROUND AND JOURNEY
I am a graduate of the University of London and the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales Paris, with an international career in Institutional Finance, working in the business fields of securities and financial trading, investment management and in financial education for the Financial Services Industry.
Earlier in my career I started working in the Securities Industry and in Capital markets in Tokyo, towards the end of the 1980s, in a variety of front office roles such as Equities Sales, Research Analyst, Proprietary Trader – arbitrageur and Currency Trader. I also worked in Private Banking as an Investment Specialist before moving to Australia at the end of the 90’s.
I spent 6 years in Sydney, specializing in trading Fixed Income products such as Samurai, Emerging Debt and EMTNs as well as Global and Private placements between Australasia and Europe. I was also an Investment Technical Editor at the Securities Institute of Australia (now FINSIA), for the dissemination of professional knowledge and sound financial practices.
My international career took me back to Europe where I worked in Asset Management in Paris for almost 10 years as a Product Specialist in Asian Equities Strategies at Société Générale Asset Management. During this mandate, I travelled to Japan, China, Singapore and Hong-Kong as an Ambassador in charge of the Institutional marketing of our local expertise, and as the bridge between the local Fund Managers and the international Sales teams and Consultants. My final assignment in Finance was in Hong Kong as a Senior Product Specialist in 2015.
I STARTED LOOKING FOR DEEPER MEANING AND PURPOSE IN LIFE
I dared embark on a fascinating journey of transformation and self-discovery.
I studied Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and Confucianism with the Catholic University in Paris and revisited my Iyengar yoga practice.
AND BECAME A CERTIFIED COACH AND A CERTIFIED NLP MASTER PRACTITIONER
I am a Certified Coach with the Institut des Neurosciences Appliquées in Paris and a NLP Master Practitioner 2.0 certified by Coaching Quebec in Canada.
The training one undergoes at Institut des Neurosciences Appliquées in Paris, by David Lefrancois and his team, is unique and allows, through a personal growth marathon, to cover the full spectrum of the fundamentals of motivational neurosciences.
It is a fascinating process to transform oneself. Deciphering limiting mental beliefs and identifying one’s own shadows and fears on the path to self realization is indeed very empowering. Self esteem is a state of mind and the culmination of such memorable journey.
NLP provides powerful communication tools, to understand the verbal and non verbal expression of the mental map. Highlighting beliefs and filters will allow to recalibrate, and by tapping into the individual’s ressources, to better harness changes and therefore be able to transform oneself.
GREETINGS FROM THE ANTIPODES
I started my life growing up in the colony of New Hebrides in South Pacific, thanks to my grand mother, who had arrived from the Red River Delta in North Vietnam, to work as a coolie on the coconut plantations there.
My father was a French explorer who settled in the New Hebrides after the Second World War, he was one of the first Europeans to settle in the island.
From Vanuatu to now living in Paris, there was a quite exotic journey of living in Paris, Tokyo, Sydney and Hong Kong, first as a student, then as an Executive in Institutional Finance, for more than 25 years.
BETWEEN MELANESIA AND EUROPE IS THE ORIENT WHERE EAST MEETS WEST
Throughout my entire life, the urge to travel regularly to bond the gap between my South Pacific – Vietnamese – French roots, or such antipodes within me, took me back to Melanesia and back to Europe throughout Asia countless times.
OVER TEN YEARS IN ASIA
Asia with its emphasized harmony and philosophy of the Daoism, Confucianism as well as Buddhism has always fascinated me and such Oriental cultures have a strong influence in my life. I was to spend 10 years living in Japan. This immersive experience of the senses where one can easily loose oneself, in an amazing culture, language, philosophy and spirituality of life will stay with me for ever.
AND FINALLY PARIS
I came back to establish myself in Paris in 2017. What more natural than to come back to the city of enlightenment to enjoy its esthetics, arts, most beautiful museums, theater and music performances, wonderful lectures and intellectualism? It is a privilege to be able to enjoy “l’art de vivre à la française”.
My interests include swimming, walking, photography, reading, travelling, meditation and Yoga.
