Ce qu’ils et elles disent à propos de moi

“Florence has a vision. As Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation, she helped bring the organisation one step further, from a small non-profit to one of the major actors of the non-profit scene today. She is a compelling speaker, as well as an excellent pedagogue. She knows how to captivate her audience and bring forward the important challenges of collaborative work, as well as help people understand how to apply her teachings to their everyday issues. She's your best bet to bring your organisation forward in the area of collaborative practices.”
Delphine Ménard

“Florence provided us with leadership and a strong community spirit during a period of extreme growth and change. I would recommend her for any position involving independent thinking a willingness to challenge the status quo.”

Her understanding of structures is very good and quick. She understood quickly and internal rules of both private and public partnerships, bringing high added value in digitally-driven projects.
