Job Title:
Innovation Manager Europe - Class of 2015

I was lucky enough to join this programme to consolidate my position as an all-round leader. I’ve developed my channels of influence and communication with the main job sectors (marketing, finance, RH, supply) that I come across in the context of my work. The course helped me to prepare and reinvent my future as a leader.

Job Title:
Financial Director Leader Group - Class of 2015

Meetings in the professional context often revolve around an identical circle to the one you work in, with the same size business, similar activity, and the same jobs, which is very limiting. The diversity of participants, the many contributors and the courses means that the AMP allows us to significantly extend our field of knowledge. A year of ‘intellectual sustenance’ which helped us to grow!

Titre: Arnaud CIOR
Job Title:
General Manager – Fitness Academy Group - Class of 2015

The National Marine course was an extraordinary highlight of the AMP programme. The absence of internet, etc. meant that I had to delegate the operations in my company. Life on board involved identifying priorities and stressful situations, and brought out the best in me. These offbeat situations made a whole lot of sense in my life as a business owner.
