Julien is one of the best managers I've worked with. His great interpersonal and communication skills aided in developing productive working relationships within the Firm. He always provided me with clear instructions along with the full background of projects and/or details from senior management discussions. He always provided constructive feedback and advice on my work, which helped in my professional development.
Julien was the best project / program manager I had the pleasure to work with during my career with Cagemini in Germany and Australia. In Capgemini, he was without a doubt a well recognised leader of complex and large scale strategy and transformation projects.
Julien uniquely combines analytical excellence and strategic thinking with a customer-focussed and collaborative consulting approach and masters balanced and effective stakeholder management.
Julien has an outstanding professional attitude and consistently puts his customers in the centre of his work. He builds and manages relationships on senior / CxO level that are based on trust and respect.
Personally, I very much appreciated the opportunity the work together with Julien and to learn from his experience and professionalism. He is smart, honest, caring and generous and he has that rare but so important skill to build and lead high-performance teams and to set up highly productive work environments. I would always return to work as part of one of Julien’s projects as it is fun and there is a lot to learn.
Julien gave outstanding presentations on medtech and digital healthcare at seminars hosted by Baker & McKenzie in Tokyo last week. Julien provided fascinating insights, and had our clients and our lawyers buzzing.
Julien is an insightful and innovative thinker, and when recently engaged for business consulting and advice, Julien's ideas resonated immediately from both strategic and operational perspectives. He was extremely prompt in his followup, and we were delighted that Julien exceeded our expectations in the information and insight provided, as well as by his easy and engaging style of communication.
Julien advised me on opportunities and challenges for financing of expensive Health Care treatments in emerging markets. His deep knowledge and expertise in finance, emerging markets and pharma industry was invaluable to answer my questions and evaluate different scenarios. I was most impressed with Julien’s “real world” expertise and ability to judge and articulate what it takes to implement a novel business in the different emerging markets.
Julien is an inspiration to all those who worked for him at Capgemini Australia. He has the values and integrity that all consultant should embody and installed them in those he worked with purposefully and through leading by example. Julien prepared thoroughly, thinks strategically, delegates practically, commits to development, anticipates and mitigates project risks and ensures projects are effective.
Julien was the driving force of the Transformation Consulting practice bringing deep consulting knowledge and obvious experience that developed the people, practice and business. Working on engagements with Julien I witnessed his uncanny ability to maintain control of large and complex Transformation Projects. Here he became the trusted advisor of the senior client at CxO level, organised a joint team of 30 staff, trained stream leads in context and content and developed junior consultants.
Personally, I appreciated the opportunity to learn and develop under Julien and still refer to his way of working long after he had moved on. He is honest, intelligent, and generous.
I whole heartedly recommend Julien to any employer and relish the opportunity to work with him again.
Julien provided us with insightful information and strategies based upon his substantial experience in business and marketing strategy. His inputs contributed to a total redesign of our business plan and his ideas have helped to shape our new approach to customer engagement and marketing. I would thoroughly recommend Julien's knowledge and experience in projects relating to business plan development, market analysis and segmentation and strategic planning.
Julien is able to quickly and effectively advise a company's business model onto a track to success by giving practical and meaningful advice on every aspect of starting and growing a business.
