The program will be hosted by a team of local and international practitioners:


Nancy Bragard (France/US)
I accompany individuals and teams of diverse cultures (national and organisational) through systemic transformation. I am a firm believer of the empowerment conferred through participatory methodologies, bringing people together in conversation to initiate change. The soundness of the tacit and often unleveraged collective wisdom thus released brings forth sustainable actions, as they are identified, crafted and coordinated by the actors of the system themselves. I brought the Art of Hosting seminars to France in 2010 and, since then, have stewarded the evolution of the community of practitioners. (Fluent French and English)

Caroline Rennie (Switzerland)
I work with executives and executive teams globally to deliver sustained alignment and heightened effectiveness in the environmental and sustainability domain. I have served as coach, advisor and strategist to senior teams in multinational corporations, government, and international & local NGOs in the US, Europe and Africa. I am currently founding partner of gen-h, a consultancy that helps teams and organisations that feel frustrated and stuck, leap forward together; and managing partner of ren-new, a company that works with people in organisations to make sustainability profitable. (Fluent English, French and Italian).;

Jany Barraut (Switzerland)
I partner with organizations and teams to help them work effectively across cultures and boundaries. Specialized in facilitating organizational change, developing teams and collaborative cultures in multicultural environments, I genuinely enjoy helping people and teams grow and flourish. Supporting multinational companies and international NGOs bringing meaningful change to life globally and regionally, I co-created Gen-H to help organisations and their people unleash energy and live the future they are aspiring to see; I am running as well my own consultancy in Organization Development and Change with a focus on enabling sustained transformations in multicultural contexts. (Fluent English, French and German).

Anita Paalvast (Netherlands)
I am a trainer, coach and consultant in change processes. I support managers and teams with increasing their effectiveness in communication, leadership and cooperation. I am passionate about letting people discover and mobilize their inner power via their physical intelligence, a dimension that is rapidly growing in the area of behaviour and culture change in organisations.
I am a practitioner of the Japanese martial art Aikido since 1992 and have a fourth degree black belt. I have worked as an internal risk manager at a multinational bank. Since I founded Aikido@Work in 2009, I combine my experience in the business world with my training and experience on the Aikido mat. (Fluent English, French, Dutch)

Pamela Ann Burkhalter (Switzerland, HongKong)
Originally a lawyer, I have been running my business as an executive coach and facilitator, designing and delivering coaching, leadership and change programs since 2003. Life has led and continues to lead me to many places, geographically and metaphorically. My work is very much about partnering multi-cultural clients on their journeys in today’s complex and constant change environments as individuals and groups, raising consciousness, challenging them to find power and potential from within. I love holding space with stillness, passion and play, so that people can show up fully and meaningful conversations and extraordinary results can happen. (Fluent English, German, French, Cantonese, Mandarin)

Florence Rigneau (France)
Since 2007 I help people come up with tangible solutions by helping them see afresh. As a graphic facilitator I help organisations and communities navigate complex situations through visual representation and meaningful questioning.
As a painter, I capture and cristalyze the present moment during workshops: as with a mirror, my paintings allow people to see situations and relationships differently and access new insights. What I love about my work is sharing pieces of wisdom that I uncover on my personal journey. (Fluent English, French).

Stephan Krajcik (France, Switzerland)
I am a man who wants to contribute to making this world a better place. Sounds familiar? Naïve? Idealistic? Common? Well, it is all of the above! Beyond the tales and narrative that we all live in and contribute to, there is a simple truth: we are all humans! As such we all have the same needs, desires, fears and the same true nature. Organizations are no different since they are all made of humans. As a coach, and facilitator my mission is to help organizations clear the way to make room for their own true nature to be revealed, and find their righteous place as conscious living organisms. I am a multicultural cosmopolitan, a sculptor, and a Haiku writer. As an artist, I believe that creativity comes before love, and that love is our most wonderful creation. (Fluent in French, English and Italian)

Beate M. Schulze (Switzerland)
I work with people, teams and organizations to discover and tap into hitherto hidden resources and potentials to enhance creativity, collaboration, leadership, and performance. As a coach, I combine strength-based, solution-focused approaches with the sharp analytical eye of the systemic perspective. Trained in sociology, psychology and economics, I started out as a researcher, lecturer and assistant professor, fascinated with the mechanisms at play in the formation of stereotypes and available to dispel or prevent them. Heading the Zurich Empowerment Programme at the University of Zurich, I studied resources and stressors in the workplace and developed interventions to prevent de-motivation and exhaustion. I am convinced that positive relationships at work are key to both employee wellbeing, innovation, and results. (Fluent German, English and French)
