WE HELP OUR CLIENTS CAPTURE THE IMAGINATION OF THE PEOPLE THEY SERVE.
Of course, crafting the Perfect Pitch is about business and communication strategy, but more importantly, it's about people. We help people capture the imagination of the people they serve by enhancing their capacity to tell a compelling story. It's our art and we love it!
Dominique’s passion is to help organizations innovate their strategy and business models, and strike wins with investors, clients and audiences of all kinds. A signature approach in his work is storymaking - using the power of narratives to uncover purpose, mobilize resources (internal and external), deliver performance and facilitate change for the better.
Dominique began his career in France in construction and shipbuilding, running a business unit that contributed to some of Europe’s landmark architectural projects - like the Bibliothèque François Mitterand in Paris and the European Parliament in Strasbourg. He built on this experience - facilitating and leading teams to seize opportunities and overcome challenges - when he made Montreal his base camp in 2001. He eventually became CEO of Mercuri International in Canada, a global strategy, sales and performance advisory firm headquartered in Sweden. But then inspired by his experiences with C2 Montreal - first on a mandate and then as an ambassador - Dominique now focuses his energy and work on reconciling economic performance and sustainable development.
He is an active member of the HATCH Experience community - a network of changemakers dedicated to facilitating a better world - as well as the MADE collective, and was invited by Mr. Piccard to join his new initiative to save the planet: the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions.
Dominique is passionate about his work and never misses an opportunity to engage in inspiring conversations with changemakers. He is pleased to contribute to UP’ Magazine as a global correspondent.
