Where Big Brains Meet Big Hearts!

By Mette Bruyant-Langer

 
Today, 50 years after the Youth Revolution in Paris and 30 years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, we need again to fight protectionism, populism, and polarization. We must work from a both-and, not an either-or perspective. We must include, not exclude. We have the freedom to choose and the responsibility to act.

 
On April 12, 2018, The Personal Business Plan hosted a very special summit meeting:

 

“Where Big Brains Meet Big Hearts!”

Also, of course, about the tips and the tricks of the trade. This is exactly what this article is about.

10 Ways to Success and Happiness

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

 

 
In March 1996, I reinvented myself.
I wrote my own Personal Business Plan, and I went from being a Chief Marketing Officer at L’Oréal and Coca-Cola to becoming an executive search partner at Korn Ferry. This all happened because I was fired back in 1996 – there’s always a catch!

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

 

How are things really going in France?

Having just returned from my beloved France, my second home country, I still wonder how the recent leadership changes will affect everyday life.

We all go through the same life phases. We all live through the same existential challenges. But when it comes to age it is as if half the population uses the ostrich strategy and buries their head in the sand.
