Testimonials

« My first COLEAD-21 was very stimulating: effective introduction of the concept, inspiring and authentic testimonial of an amazing leader, and breakout with two amazing leaders I had never met before, and who helped me to reflect and build on the session. So powerful… that I can’t wait for the next event! »

« I loved the testimony from Nathalie Ross, the guest on January 20, 2021, and the format you chose with a kind of speed dating – fun and different. Nathalie came across as a truly inspiring female leader, modest, charismatic, with great humour and fantastic human values. She spoke openly and simply about her difficulties, and the importance connecting with herself. It was a great moment. Thank you for organizing this event.»

«Intrigued at the beginning on how to co-create tomorrow’s world. Then, charmed by the network of like-minded leaders from around the globe. And finally, convinced by the possibilities of collective power, disruptive intelligence and performance to make transformative progress happen.»

«I started participating in COLEAD in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic. As an entrepreneur who was trying to find a certain direction and a vision in this very particular context where it was difficult to project oneself, these meetings were a real breath of fresh air. I appreciate being able to rub shoulders with leaders who want to build a more serene and human business world. The challenges we all face are just beginning, and I could not do without these inspiring meetings.»
