General Manager at WooElse and Visiting Lecturer at Edhec Business School
Cyrille Comole-Theveniaud helps people and firms
propel themselves into the digital economy and be
ready for the next transitional challenges.
Her areas of expertise are rooted in Digital
Marketing and Emerging Techs where she
nurtures her inspiration, both from the business
worlds where from she brings 20 years of
experience and the academic fields where she
holds several masters from prestigious Universities
such as HEC or the University of Oxford.
Through a very unique approach that resulted from a 20 months applicative research, she proposes
a very unique way to accompany technological challenges where she places emotionalities,
identity needs, value of knowledges, transparent communication, and transient leadership at the
heart of the transformation strategy.
An approach which has appeared to be both surprising and very efficient to unlock complexities,
accelerate adoption, and spur self-learning mechanisms.
