“Amélie est une coach et une mentor exceptionnelle! J’ai été bluffée par son charisme, son énergie et surtout sa bienveillance. Elle a su me donner les clés pour me faire confiance et foncer. Elle incarne à la perfection les mots de la poétesse Maya Angelou:« People will forget what you said or what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel » Amélie tu nous fais sentir que rien n’est impossible et pour cela MERCI.”
Moufida Mohamed Abdoulhalik

“We were blessed to have Amelie on board of our mentors’ team for our first acceleration program in Thailand. She coached our start-ups and gave them key practical techniques to manage stress, to structure a powerful pitch and to convince the audience. Two extra and added values I like from her work are (1) her ability and experience to coach and interact with people from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, (2) she brings concrete and precious examples from her stage experience as a professional speaker. If you want to convey an impactful message in a limited time, convince your audience and communicate with confidence, I highly recommend you hire Amelie as your coach.”
