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.
I read the French financial newspaper, Les Echos, & the New YorkTimes extensively.
What are your favorite books and why 📚?
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.
