Happily married since more than 30 years - Happy father of two kids " Happiness as a parent is when you realize that your children have turned out to be good people! "

Deeply convinced that to meet our sustainability and impact goals: 

we all have a role to play as entrepreneurs, companies, associations, politics, individuals

and  we not only need gender but also generational, competency, cultural background etc...  diversity, or even better complementarity,  at all levels. 

At the initiative and to the benefit not only of women but also companies and above all future generations. 

Deeply inspired by quotes like: 

" I always wondered why somebody had not fixed the problem yet, until I realized I am somebody ! " – unknown

" If ever you think you are too small to make a difference, you have not spent the night with a mosquito yet ! " - african proverb 

" It is not about ideas but about making ideas happen ! " - unkown
