"Pascal's contribution to our Leadership Meeting was incredibly fruitful for bringing up for discussion the 'never normal' strategies of the world's leading countries, in particular China, due to his vast experience with it. He has shown our company through a very engaging and interactive keynote that leadership is more than social skills and ambition, and that it is also about artificial intelligence, rapid development, solution-oriented thinking and taking risks. What most appealed to us during his speech were his applied examples to each argument and his guidelines that we could further implement within our own culture."

"At several events, Pascal Coppens managed to inform and inspire our customers and partners on China’s ‘New Normal’, and how European companies can play their role."

P&G

"Pascal inspired the full PG organization with his keynote that was delivered in Sept19. After the keynote a group of young, talented people teamed up to relook at some processes, principles, way of working to challenge those and update them based on what they had learned during the presentation. 

On a regular basis the PG New Normal team comes together and presents the plan to the Belgium Lead team to further optimize the way we work!

Thanks a lot for inspiring us!"
