    TRAINING: MINES DE PARIS
    CONSULTING FIRM EXPERIENCE: BCG
    AVAILABILITY: FULL TIME

    YOUR CAREER IN BRIEF
    After graduating from the Mines de Paris engineering school, I joined the Boston Consulting Group in 2010, where I spent four years. I then worked for three years as Deputy Managing Director of an aircraft catering company. I have been an independent consultant and member of the OMS pool since 2017.

    WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT?
    I chose to become an independent consultant as a transitional phase between two professional projects; it enables me to keep an ear to the market and be on the lookout for opportunities in the industry, while earning money and working on some really interesting assignments. Being an independent consultant also enables me to gain professional experience by carrying out assignments in a range of sectors.

    WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH ONE MAN SUPPORT?
    First and foremost, a larger network, especially in sectors complementary to my own. Thanks to the high volumes of assignments proposed, OMS also enables me to find projects that correspond to my needs: part time, the possibility of working without being based in Paris, etc. Being a member of the network also, of course, enables me to delegate part of the commercial side of things, while continuing to work with my own network of clients.

    TRAINING: ECOLE NATIONALE DES PONTS ET CHAUSSÉES / COLLÈGE DES INGÉNIEURS
    CONSULTING FIRM EXPERIENCE: BOSTON CONSULTING GROUP (BCG)
    AVAILABILITY: FULL TIME

    YOUR CAREER IN BRIEF
    During my engineer studies at Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, I specialised in Financial Mathematics and realised 4 projects at OC&C strategy consulting firm in retail and consumer goods. I then joined Engie’s Global Gaz and GNL Strategy Direction in parallel of an MBA at Collège des Ingénieurs. In 2010, I joined the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) where I participated in around 20 projects in various sectors. The 6 years I spent at BCG allowed me to get used to various strategic and organisational issues.

    WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT?
    Being an independent consultant allows me to choose the projects I’d like to work on. I rely on the experience I acquired at OC&C and BCG to bring high value to my clients. And as an independent consultant I have great flexibility in my future professional choices.

    WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH ONE MAN SUPPORT?
    When I chose to become an independent I was afraid about the commercial effort I would need to do. Meeting One Man Support team has been a key factor in my decision. One Man Support build a unique clients’ and consultants’ network in the market. Their projects’ and clients’ portfolio are fully adapted to my profile and the sectors I like the most.

    TRAINING :ESCP EUROPE
    CONSULTING FIRM EXPERIENCE: KURT SALOMON / BEARING POINT
    AVAILABILITY: FULL TIME

    YOUR CAREER IN BRIEF
    After obtaining my Masters degree from ESCP Europe business school, specialising in Entrepreneurship, I turned to consulting. I started out with Kurt Salmon Associates, which at that time specialised in Retail, then with BearingPoint, again in the Retail teams. I then worked on entrepreneurial projects in the fast-food sector, creating 2 concepts (Chilk and La Fromagette), opening 5 points of sale. With the benefit of this experience, I decided to return to consulting but as an independent consultant.

    WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT?
    I have now been an independent consultant for almost four years, even though the idea of starting a new business continues to appeal to me. This situation offers a lot of advantages including the ability to pick and choose one’s assignments, adapt one’s schedule while earning a good income. It also recognises the value of the consultant, as they are chosen for their individual profile, background and experience. It is a good solution for supporting a career transition and taking the time to make the right decisions.

    WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH ONE MAN SUPPORT?
    One Man Support differs from other independent networks in a number of ways. Firstly, there is real transparency vis-à-vis the consultant, both from a financial point of view and as regards the relationship with the client, from the sending of the CV to the end of the assignment. Secondly, the sales team is very much involved throughout the assignment to ensure its success: the consultant is not left to their own devices with the client once the contract is signed. Lastly, One Man Support represents a real community in which you can spontaneously request expertise on a number of topics and receive a rapid response.

    TRAINING :CENTRALE PARIS
    CONSULTING FIRM EXPERIENCE: ROLAND BERGER
    AVAILABILITY: TEMPS PARTIEL

    YOUR CAREER IN BRIEF
    After graduating from Centrale Paris engineering school, I spent two years at Roland Berger before founding Co-assist, where we develop innovative alarm watches for the elderly. I am particularly in charge of financing, business development and management of support functions.

    WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT?
    As the technological development of our product is a long process, we felt that my time would be spent more usefully for Co-assist if I managed to bring in an additional source of income during the development stage, in order to limit our cash consumption. I therefore spend half my time on consulting assignments and the other half managing Co-assist.

    WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH ONE MAN SUPPORT?
    One Man Support has offered me a varied range of interesting and well-paid missions. They have also managed to constantly assign me work, thanks to the quality of their sales network.

    TRAINING: ESSEC
    CONSULTING FIRM EXPERIENCE: AT KEARNEY
    AVAILABILITY: PART-TIME

    YOUR CAREER IN BRIEF
    After graduating from ESSEC business school, I opted for strategy consulting and joined AT Kearney. I wanted the opportunity to discover various sectors and the key issues facing businesses. It was a remarkable experience which I continue to draw on every day. In particular, it helped me to develop an analytical way of thinking and a sense of rigour in my work.
    After six years, I felt the need to invest my skills in a particular company on a more long-term basis, so I took up the position of Strategy Director for the Casino group. This experience only lasted one year as the person who had recruited me was promoted to Chief Operating Officer of Cdiscount and asked me to join his team.
    At Cdiscount I took on the roles of Strategy Director and then Marketing Director. I was managing a team of a hundred employees and was in charge of customer acquisition (natural referencing, advertising, CRM), merchandising (PC website, mobile website, applications, algorithms, benchmark, web analytics, etc.) and customer loyalty.
    A year ago, I decided to launch my own start-up, ArtPhotoLimited (www.artphotolimited.com), a website specialising in the sale of art photos and vintage photos on the Internet.

    WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT?
    Alongside my entrepreneurial adventure, I also decided to take up consulting again, on the basis of one day a week. Running one’s own business is very time-consuming and I felt it was important to be able to take a global view while continuing to explore other subjects. This activity also provides me with an additional source of income to finance the development of my start-up.

    WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH ONE MAN SUPPORT?
    Joining One Man Support has two main advantages:
    Firstly, I don’t have to market my services. This is essential, as it is extremely time-consuming
    Also, One Man Support allows me to adapt the time I spend on consulting assignments according to the needs of my start-up, which remains my number one priority
