Serial Entrepreneur on the French Riviera
We’re approaching the Palais des Festivals, home of the Cannes International Film Festival.
“You said the secret of your success is a combination of things, can you name some more?”
“You could say, my sense for people, my people management skills, are part of my success. I seem to find the right key people for my organization. And when I have the people in place, they are very loyal. Some of the people have been working for me for more than 20 years, which is not at all the industry standard.”
“Why is that, where does this ability to create loyalty come from?”
“I think it’s my cultural background. Family and friends are very important to me. Doing business for me is not only about making profit. It is about creating stakeholder value as well. For my partners, my suppliers and my employees.
“It’s about building relationships, which makes the people I work with valuable assets… and at the same time it creates value for the company.”
