Who is your biggest source of inspiration?

I don’t have a single inspiration source. Instead, I am inspired by a mix of our customer’s needs, emblematic entrepreneurs, and other renowned experts.

Among these experts, I include a mix of soldiers, researchers, and artists.

How do you keep learning on a daily basis?  What are your learning routines?

I learn by reading and observing. I observe my business partner and some of our staff members. I also belong to several boards, from startups to banks, where I learn from other markets & entrepreneurs.

What is your favorite podcast, and why 🎧?

I listen to several but do not have any favorites. I find the quality very heterogeneous. 

Favorite articles?

I read the French financial newspaper,  Les Echos, & the New YorkTimes extensively. 

What are your favorite books and why πŸ“š?

Hands down, my favorite management books areΒ  Blue Ocean Strategy, “The Hard Thing About Hard Things,” and Designing the Future.

If you were stuck alone on an island and only be allowed to bring one item, what would it be 🏝?

It depends on what is on the island. If nothing else, probably a water purifier. Otherwise, I would bring a satellite-connected computer. 

The last word

We can learn a great deal from other disciplines. Be it the arts or martial arts; they can have business implications.

As an aviation enthusiast and light aircraft pilot, I have learned much from this demanding and strict discipline that I have applied to my business endeavors.
