For the first time, I am really impressed by the quality of the work and the dynamics of the group. Bravo and thanks to Violaine! She managed to make our inner self vibrate, and liberate our creativity, to make the child within us speak. We need this free child to be able to innovate socially. For me, it was a moment of great truth, authenticity and collective healing.

Violaine is an authentic and empathetic leader, who brings all of the skills and expertise in strategy design for driving social and humanitarian causes to the non profit sector. I had the pleasure of working with Violaine for over 4 years. She is a creative and innovative leader, who has a genuine interest in aligning the human element with business strategy. She leads with a balanced heart and mind. I partnered with Violaine on several team development areas and I witnessed her zest for learning, curious mind and openness to trying new things that leaned her out of her comfort zone. She is meant to elevate the humanitarian and social causes that she believes in to new and innovative heights.

Violaine is a dynamic, experienced and innovative facilitator. During civil-military cooperation trainings, in collaboration with the Pearson Center, she kept the interest of all participants by using multiple participative techniques and tangible examples. Participants from all continents managed to understand the principles of cooperation thanks to her multicultural knowledge and ingenuity. She has a keen sense of observation and has improved participants' skills during simulation exercises by offering them different perspectives.
