Insights and convictions

Forseeing the strong development of compliance in France, after having observed it in the United States, Blandine strongly believes that « strategic protection » is becoming an essential lever for companies’ sustainability. She co-founded the Cercle de La Compliance and was its Vice-President for 7 years.

She helps listed and non-listed firms organise cutting edge legal, compliance and risk management teams. She also advises firms on governance issues and their impact on human resources.

She is a regular speaker at conferences throughout Europe and takes part in several think-tanks in topics such as the organisation of governance, empowering boards of directors, or the evolution of strategic protection functions in companies.

She regularly writes about the evolution of these functions, the management of legal and extra-financial risks, as well as the culture of performance and change management.
