Her professional experience

The concept of growth has always guided Bénédicte’s journey.

Over 15 years in business, the sales positions she has hold led her to successfully open and develop significant accounts such as L’Oréal, Procter & Gamble, Danone, and new activities (Digital, New Business).

On a personal level, she has successfully initiated her career change, leaving the corporate world to put her skills into developing managers’ careers.

Finally, as an entrepreneur, she first worked for an outplacement firm in Paris before moving to London to create her coaching method, Dare-Yourself. There she assists members of the French and international community in their professional transition, job search, and career development. She has also developed a strong network and now offers her French clients her Anglo-Saxon know-how regarding self-esteem and job search techniques.
