François Lavallée, M.Sc. – Author, trainer and speaker
François is an organizational biologist.
Although his first career was that of a molecular biologist, working with DNA and the regulatory enzymes that control its expression, he quickly realized that molecules in organizations behave like his beloved enzymes! François worked as a scientist for five years before becoming a manager and trainer in the pharmaceutical industry for ten years. His unusual background allowed him to use colorful metaphors to explain the content of his dynamic and surprising training or conferences to participants. As part of his duties, he had to manage teams and transform the companies’ culture where he worked. Here is more detail about his career:
