A sociologist, Transactional Analysis therapist, fashion lover, food addict, and proud mum of Paul and Come and our energetic Australian Shepherd Willow. I was born and raised in France by a Vietnamese father and a German mother. Growing up with multiple cultural influences formed my open-mindedness and nurtured my curiosity to understand people for who they are beyond their labels.

I have always been passionate about the beauty and complexity of the human psyche, so I studied Social Sciences and Psychology. There is no day at Innate Motion where I do not put these skills to work. I am intrigued to help companies and brands to build a deeper and more genuine relationship with the people they want to serve. To do so, I use the power of empathy and deep listening skills to unearth what moves human beings and how we can engage them in the most meaningful way. A brighter human future starts one person at a time. As a Sage, I dream of a world free from misinformation and shallowness, where knowledge is king and drives advancement.

I am an open-hearted, boundary-breaking, society defying, yogi and champagne lover…one part yin and 2 parts yang. Over the last 21 years in marketing, entrepreneurship, and consulting I have learned that empathy is key to unlocking real meaningful change and growth. I have worked on brands and businesses in most industries from FMCG, retail, and beauty to pharma, the chicken industry, and technology. I have also created my own brands.

My belief is that we should use what we do to become who want to be. And I want to be someone who contributes to making the world a better place. Living in the most unequal country in the world, South Africa, I believe that if businesses could become more inclusive, purposeful, and regenerative the planet and its people would thrive. If you, like me, believe the same, then let’s chat. Together we can make an impact.

I’m a reductivist who loves to geek out on words, a passionate debater, and a cookbook collector. I am endlessly energized by finding that beautiful and elusive red thread that connects so many ways of doing and being across cultures. I thrive on the challenge of distillation, on simplifying the complex, and chasing perfection: the instantly obvious yet completely surprising.

I have spent 15+ years helping clients free themselves from the wallpaper, the jargon and cut through business as usual to shape something of value for the world — always through the eyes of people. I like to voice my strong opinions on Forbes Agency Council and Fast Company Executive Board.

Rulebreaker, imaginator, natural-born leader, writer, a multilingual and passionate dancer who loves fun, food, and travel. I believe in business as a force for good and drive the B Corp community in Indonesia. I passionately work with companies and brands to create a positive impact. I’m known as a person who challenges the comfort zones, walks the road less traveled, and instigates people to think out of the box.

I bring eclectic competencies as an engineer, brand strategist, researcher, parent, lecturer, speaker, and world citizen to the work I do, next to the 20+ years of experience. I share the power of hard work, positive thinking, and gratefulness in my social interactions. Today I live in Bali with Daniel, my partner, and Casey, my daughter. With Renoir & Rambo, our dogs, we enjoy the luxury of watching the sunset, walking on the beach, and being close to nature. I help organizations and people who rescue stray animals.

Active dream chaser, lifelong nomad, self-certified experience junkie, amateur yogi, and an innovative rebel. I have always found it easy to fit naturally in different settings and connect with people seamlessly. This ability enables me to view and appreciate the world from different windows. It fuels the spirit of curiosity and restlessness in me which exposes me to different disciplines, cultures, and countries. Getting to connect deeply with people all around the world brings me so much joy. 

I am passionate about improving systems that stifle empowerment and the pursuit of better livelihoods for people in society. You can refer to me as an activist of the sustainable or regenerative movement. My work centers on working with businesses to be beacons of change in the industry and with individuals to elevate their thinking and empower them to drive the change the world so desperately needs to secure our collective future.

Caring for people and boosting profits don’t have to be polar opposite endeavors. The traditional logic of business is that we can either prioritize people or prioritize performance.
