After three decades in software, an entrepreneur at first, then an international executive for fast pace Big Tech corporations (Lotus, IBM, Peoplesoft, Sun Microsystems, Sage, Salesforce, Oracle), former EMEA Vice President of Marketing and Global Chief Product Officer, I am thrilled today to help teams of any size thrive in complexity, speed, and change as an optimist trusted advisor, mentor, and coach.

Optimist Trusted Advisor, Coach & Mentor
Emmanuel Obadia & Partners

Let me share my passion for how sustainable development transformation combined with accelerated digital disruption is fostering a new world. Growing a profitable business isn’t contradictory to infusing People and the Planet to your company’s purpose and business blueprint. To that end, leveraging innovation and technology is a powerful strategy when co-designing it with your employees and customers creatively. Make it desirable, feasible and viable. I started as an entrepreneur, founding my own software company, and then served major global IT vendors in international roles providing executive leadership for fast pace High Tech businesses in Marketing, Communications, Digital, Business Development, Product Management, M&A, and Alliances roles.
