François through a few questions…
1. What makes you get up in the morning?
The desire for a job well done clearly, but also often Eliot (my 2 and a half years old son).
2. What is your greatest personal and professional achievement?
Difficult to choose. An achievement is never eternal. I constantly take up the challenge of a happy family, who can thrive in an environment that is always improved. Professionally, I would quote an anecdote. By choosing a window frame for my house, the seller told me about the exceptional qualities of a new product. It was one of my patented inventions …
3. What does your wishlist contain for the next 5 years?
The world we live in has plenty of challenges, inclusive energy transition, for example. Increase your skills, your network and then say you are satisfied with your contribution to improve the world!
4. When was the last time you laughed until you cry?
Many things are a pretext for laughter. I often laugh. Nothing specific in mind.
5. What is your motto or philosophy?
We are not on earth to bother.
6. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you like to be?
Myself, 20 years younger. Or Jacques Brel, but only for one hour.
7. What's your favorite quote from a movie?
" Jour, nuit. Jour, nuit … ”(Christian Clavier in “Les Visiteurs”, who discovers the electric light…) Otherwise, I also like: "It's half an hour from here. I'll be there in ten minutes." (Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction).
