A chance to learn from a successful leader

Some career tips shared by François

"If you don't love people then you should not be a CEO, because most of your time is spent working with and learning from others," shares François. "Be humble even if you've been successful. Know that there are a lot of people that know a lot more than you know, that you will always be learning, and use that humility also to learn from the people who work for you every single day."

"Nobody gets anywhere on their own. Always be learning because if you want to be a digital leader in technology, know that it [technology] moves faster than you."
