I had worked with Dominique already in the past and we kept a warm and personal relationship.
In the summer of 2017, the question of a career change was raised for me, and she was available to help me. I was coming out of a very busy 11 years working for the same employer and did not really have bearings for my next step.
With Dominique, I was able to consider many different options without censoring myself. It helped me reformulate my professional life in terms of opportunities – not constraints – and to consider what I deeply wanted to do. I finally decided to start my own business. I was at first surprised, I thought it was still too early, but no. Her faithful support in the start-up period has been invaluable to me.
Making the decision to undertake [the new business] was an important turning point in my professional life, and the accompaniment of Dominique allowed me to make this decision very calmly.
