Edgar's word

Ski? I fell into it when I was a kid… I was born in the mountains of Jura and grew up in the Alps under the proud look of my parents who had a passion for ski. They gave me the “virus” and let me experience competition as a school of life… Several Olympic medals, a few world titles in my pocket, I retired at 26 years old. That school of life and high-level sport allowed me to forge myself a spirit of a passionate worker, seeking pleasure in the perfectly executed move. Today I am doing the best job in the world; I accompany people (sport & companies) in the development of their performances. Through conferences on the theme of motivation or through education and coaching programs, I pass on my expertise and my knowledge with authenticity, reasoning and humility.
