Led by Justine Laurent, Brieuc Saffré & Fabrice Sorin
Co-founders of Circulab, Circulab Academy Manager

Your customers are increasingly aware of the need to transform their business model. However, you find that most of the assignments you sell miss the point and end up as micro-initiatives with no real impact, or as resource optimisation without any in-depth rethinking of the business models.

You're beginning to wonder whether your expertise is the most efficient to embark your clients on a genuine transformation of their activities.

You're constantly looking for "the trigger" that will make your clients tick and allow you to fulfil your role as a "change maker". In short, you're fed up with selling assignments that don't suit you and you want things to change.

45 hours over 8 weeks to get to grips with a toolbox and master an innovation methodology to solve your clients' complex problems and support them in their transformation.

With this course, you'll have the tools you need to make a difference and take action in an ever-changing world.

"Circulab is a high-level, high-quality training programme, with the right balance between the acquisition of theoretical concepts/knowledge and "doing", with the application of what has been learnt to a real problem and at each stage of the method. Collective intelligence enriches research, reflection, analysis and possible solutions. Goodwill and the quality of the human relationship are also at the heart of the training, encouraging expression, sharing and creativity, and valuing each member of the group"
