Laurent en quelques mots

I am a former Tech entrepreneur and researcher turned consultant on topics of digital transformation, strategic agility and innovation.

With a background in management consulting (Deloitte) and research (INSEAD, Stanford Graduate School of Business), I apply my unique combination of strategic thinking and hands-on approach to drive business insights, identify growth opportunities and build capabilities to help companies navigate the sea of technological change and embrace the future instead of being disrupted by it.

Some of my work has been published by Harvard Business Publishing and used in business schools/universities and corporations around the world including the Boston Consulting Group, CEIBS, ESSEC, Harvard Business School, IMD, Intel, the London School of Economics, McKinsey, Roland Berger and Yale.

A long-time advocate of the ecosystem approach to innovation, I recently developed a case study on Zhong An, China's first digital insurance and world's largest InsurTech, in collaboration with INSEAD.
