- Frédéric is an extremely positive personality, he was President of the TPF design office, TPEAF. He has also been a real coach for me. He accompanied me, especially last year, in a period that was complicated with the Covid crisis. We exchanged a lot. I hold him in high esteem in terms of personality, because he has this ability to remain constructive in all circumstances. This characterizes many entrepreneurs but I think that lately we have all needed this state of mind and that Frédéric really wants to transmit it. He is a brilliant and radiant personality who brings a lot of good to both his professional and personal ecosystem. As Frédéric says it so well, the loneliness of a leader in the face of challenges and events is not a myth. It is pleasant to exchange with actors with whom we have a natural understanding, because they have gone through the same stages. It is important to have peers with whom we can exchange and share, with whom we will find empathy through our common experience. Source (Podcast - Radio.immo): https://bit.ly/37DaqiG
