Summer has been so nice and smart, meeting beautiful minds and challenging all kind of elements to bring you back some thrilling interviews ! I hope you enjoy each bit of it and that these innovative and creative mindsets can inspire you in your daily business or as you are planning for new adventures. I was glad to share some time with Cedric Lescop (CEO of Jet Fly, pictured above in front of one of the airline’s Pilatus PC12 designed by Philippe Starck). I made a choice for this Autumn 2014 to discuss strategy, design, and much more with men mostly. Among them entrepreneurs and executives such as : Bruno Dubois (Dong Feng), Richard Mille, Alexis Trichet (Orange), Arnaud de Saint Exupery (Andaz Tokyo), … I am not even sure yet wether I can get a chance to seat down with Olivier Fabre (Maison Fabre), Guillaume Davin (Moynat), Jean-Marc Drut (Appartement 54, Cité Radieuse) … but these are some of the makers whose take on business caught my attention lately. I let you know if I actually do.

Of course Business Madame’s lifestyle features includes : design (Kuntzel + Deygas, Be-Poles), sport (Icebreaker, Rei, Asics, Hoka One, …), travel, …  As promissed we go deeper in understanding motivations behind the most challenging and sought after off shore race in the world : the Volvo Ocean Race as I’ve just been back from Alicante covering Leg 1 (Alicante to Cape Town). I cannot wait as well to say more about Jeux de Design by Marie Jocelyn, a new project exploring connections between design and children (furniture, toys and beyond).

New interviews are to be online through out the month so please let’s keep in touch. Stay tunned !
