Hello everyone,

International business development expert with over 12 years of experience in project development/management, training and coaching, ecosystem building, innovation & digital solutions deployment. I have been providing tailor-made advisory services & trainings to companies, international organizations, entrepreneurs/ startups, and Governments.

I support my clients in terms of technology and innovation management, access to finance & markets, projects & businesses structuring, as well as digital transition with a particular focus on the African & European market in which I have extensive knowledges having worked in over 15 countries. As a strong advocate of inclusion, innovation, and technology, I have developed with my partners the concept of the “Last Digital Mile” which brings plug & play (light) digital solutions to facilitate the deployment of connectivity, e-commerce solutions, logistics and supply chain management, branding and packaging even to the most remote areas.

Prior to funding and heading Y.H Consulting, I have served the United Nations in various capacities for over 8 years with a geographical focus on Africa, allowing me to grasp and understands the main challenges and opportunities the continent faces.

Feel free to connect, it would be a pleasure to exchange and engage in building tomorrow´s businesses together.
