Markus Sandmayr

My mission is to use business as a driver for building a sustainable future, believing in the power of change and renewal to create a better world. As a Board Director, I created a space for freedom and experimentation to identify and execute strategic opportunities for growth and impact. I’ve achieved the BCorp certification for two companies in France, Blédina, and Nutricia, demonstrating their commitment to environmental and social responsibility.

I also support young start-ups as a business angel, helping them scale and make a positive difference by constantly pushing for new ways to think, be, and do. My passion for swimming keeps me focused and reflective, providing the clarity needed to lead effectively and inspire change.

Christophe Fauconnier

I’m a Welcome Change practitioner and a natural-born silo shifter. I am passionate about sports and my family. I love to use business as a tool for creativity and community building. Hence, I operate best as an entrepreneur, impact investor, and advisor, helping others build brands and using business as a force for good. Most recently, with Dr. Andreea Vanacker, I wrote The Human Growth Code, an actionable guide to embrace change by enhancing human growth.

To better share my expertise in humanizing business, I’ve co-authored several books about the power of people to change. I also co-founded Innate Motion, African Drive, The Regenerative Alliance, and Innate Active. Core to my leadership across all these businesses is the belief that business becomes infinitely more valuable for everyone when we create value together as people for people.

Mai Huan-Maury

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. 

Marcella Nigro

Creator, Daring, proactive, sometimes very stubborn, lover of animals and life. By the time that I was 22, I had already lived in 6 different countries; which for me was always very exciting. I had an easy time sucking in all that was new and adapting to my new surroundings and in a way, I believe this was a crash course to understanding and decoding people and cultures as well as practicing the power of empathy.

I have a father who inspired and exposed me to the world of business and a mother who taught me the tricks of life.  I have worked in a couple of different fields, graduating in law, later working with art, and now putting brainpower to help companies define their purpose and be better contributors to the world. My degrees and trajectories have helped me to join the practical, theoretical, and poetic visions of business.
