The professional world has been, for several decades, developing steadily. The legislative and regulatory environment which surrounds it is ever more complicated and its interpretation and application pose daily challenges. Respect for the rights of everyone is at the heart of my concerns, whether it is the members of an Order or the people responsible for enforcing rules. That is why I am pleased to offer prevention and counseling services at all stages of the application of the Professional Code.
Throughout my career, I have been involved in the field of financial institutions (administrator of a financial institution), hospital institutions (administrator of a hospital center) and the arts (administrator and president of a non-profit organization in the field of contemporary art). I also invested in training and professional information activities.
