Nov 5, long time no see. I have been quite busy seeing relatives, old essec friends, and meeting new people potentially related to what could interest me in the future. First of all, im taking a few to visit my ex boss and good pal Jean Pierre who lives in the nice city of Nantes , south of Brittany known for being the former capital city of Brittany, but also the place where trade of africans slaves used to happen. Its also the home town of Jules Vernes and the biscuits factory LU where the crispy BN (biscuiterie Nantaise) used to be made. Jean pierre has developped a fundamental role in orienting my life on investment banking when he coached me in Scandinavia (Copenhagen) and then gave me some help to join the trading desk of Abn Amro in France, known as Banque Neuflize Schlumberger Mallet (NSM). These two years I spent at NSM were the trigger of my long carreer around the globe (Holland, Ireland, Luxembourg and finally Brazil).
JeanPierre is now teaching business english and german in business and engineering and military schools in the Loire region , Brest, Rennes and Nantes and commutes every two weeks between Nantes and Olso in Norway where his partner works and lives. He has had a strong inspirational role in my life.
We always come across people like that in our lives .
Throughout these days i met my nephew and godson Julien and his daughter and is a specialist in massages in the Paris region.
I had to go back again to Viroflay to meet my bnp paribas branch manager who tried to convince me to invest in new structured products….anyway i passed by the old post office which i loved and which was behind my school.
Then an interesting interview at Santander Consumer Finance where they may have openings as from july 2017 in Paris and another fascinating meeting with a life coach Catherine Fouilland who explained to me her career and gave me good tips and opened the world of coaching to me in the old premisses of Renault HR building, avenue victor hugo in boulogne. Coincidences or not as she used to eork in Renault some time ago.
Also had good exchange of experience with my two good friends , Richard Lawrence and my business partner Thierry from Investimage Rio.
Last but not least my god mother Huguette, 93, being the confident of my stories with whom i had to store a suitcase before coming back and heading to next destination Beyrouth, Lebanon.
To be followed
Here we go
