Christophe is a natural convention buster. He can never stop challenging narrow-mindedness. Born in Belgium, he grew up in South Africa where already at a young age he started challenging de-humanizing systems like Apartheid, power abusers and social injustice.
A psychologist with a drive for impact, Christophe uses business as a tool for creativity and community building. He is a serial entrepreneur, impact investor and senior adviser to some of the best companies in the world. He has a wonderful ability to shift silos and connect dots in ways that very few business leaders can.
To better share his passion for humanizing business, Christophe has co-authored several books like Creating value people to people, Activists Dare to Care, and Beyond the power girl. He serves as a board member for African Drive, The Beauty Revolution and is on the advisory board of B-Corp Europe, ImpactNow and Onehome.org.
Core to his leadership across all these businesses is the belief that business becomes infinitely more valuable for everyone when humanized.
