A pioneering voice in engagement leadership, Celine has been recognized multiple times for her large-scale innovative engagement initiatives in the corporate world. Prior to her 17 years’ experience in the pharma industry across business operations, marketing, and industrial quality, Celine worked with communications, defense, and trading companies.

Hanoi, Vietnam, Beijing, China, and Boston, USA were once called home. From Boston, Celine led a transformation movement at pharma giant Sanofi, impacting a change population of 10,000 people across industrial operations and quality functions worldwide.

Celine now works from France as an engagement leadership consultant, helping clients with new leadership strategies that mobilize internal or external stakeholders, enable corporate transformation, and boost business value.

A TEDx speaker, Celine was made a Knight of the National Order of Merit by the French government for her workplace change efforts. She has just been awarded the Jay Cross Memorial Award by the Internet Time Alliance. Lessons from her journey in change are captured in Celine’s first book, published in June 2022: Dare to Un-Lead: The Art of Relational Leadership in a Fragmented World. Celine and her husband Leo are parents to Gustave (17) and Violette (12). In her free time, Celine loves to row on the beautiful Saône River, nearby her home.
