Anthony is the CEO of SAS company Augment, an architect, a product designer, and an artist. He creates conceptual art when he's not organizing diner parties at his home or visiting art galleries or exhibitions with his family.
Not surprisingly, his library consists of many art books. A book by Rik Coolsaet and 'Walk through walls' by Abramovic lie on his nightstand. Intellectually voracious, Anthony wants to learn and fully understand how and why the world turns, which motivates him.
"People on point" is his motto: putting the right people in the right places at the right moment.
Anthony doesn't believe in heroes. He believes in the complementarity and compatibility between people.
Young Anthony, he'd advise to be less greedy, take things step by step and not take on too much. He should be more vigilant about himself.
Why is Anthony into mentoring? Because sharing knowledge is a form of learning. "You give something, and you get something back, which I call positive opportunism," Anthony says. Mentoring strengthens the intellectual ecosystem. Supervising master's students in architecture for 15 years, he received a lot in return. A good mentor does not act as a classical coach by forcing a particular methodology into someone's head. Helping people to mine their talents and confront them positively is what constitutes a good mentor.
And with a philosophical note, Anthony closes this short introduction: "You have to build a world around you to be able to focus on the core of your professional life. Doing things well requires that you are doing other things alongside. You can only focus on something when your world isn't empty when you stop focusing."
