After graduating from the renowned business college HEC Paris, Laetitia made the logical decision to go into business. As an idealist at heart, however, she soon became disillusioned with its limitations. She had always dreamed of a job where everyone was free to give their best. So she decided to return to college and become a teacher. While teaching American politics at the prestigious Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po), she became fascinated by new developments in the world of work. As a result, she made another career change, leaving her job and moving to London to join the HR department of an American company’s European offices. This experience opened her eyes to what she truly wanted to pursue: innovation in the way people work. After launching her own consultancy firm, Cadre Noir, she now explores the future of work through her observations, research and writing. Successfully juggling the roles of author, journalist and speaker, this committed feminist loves different languages and cultures too. At Welcome to the Jungle, she offers advice to decision-makers using her experience and expertise in management and human resources.
