The Art of Shaping the Future is our Passion. 

That is what we have been dedicating our lives to for over 20 years. 

We, the Founders of the Shapership Academi, are unorthodox but we get results. Both experts in Creative and Strategic Thinking, invited University professors, we are a known, renown and appreciated "Hot Shop" in Creative Thinking and Strategic Innovation.

Working directly with Purpose driven people (Students, Educators, Entrepreneurs, Innovators, CEO's and their teams), we have transformative conversations and sessions that generate "shifts in Minds for shifts in action", broaden their perspectives, unlock their Imagination, open doors for new possibilities.

After the publication of our book, "Shapership. the art of shaping the Future" people told us : we know the future we don't want , but we don't know how to build the Future we want
So, we decided to create the shapership Academi so this vital 21st century competence could be learned. 

We are unorthodox, but we get results !

We are both super equipped with strategic methods (such as 4 Executive Certificates from M.I.T Sloan School of Management and Oxford Business School in "Strategic Planning and Strategic reframing"), Experts in the teaching and use of Serious Creativity Methods, TEDX speaker, professors of Creative Thinking in various Higher Education institutions and partners in Creative ConsulTeam. We are a known, renown and appreciated "Hot Shop" in Creative Thinking and Strategic Innovation. 

As Creative Thinkers, catalyzers of Vision of the Futures, experts in personal and organisational transformation, we are also fed up to live in an era where a word unpolluted by Bullshit comes as a surprise.

We are passionate about what makes us human truly be "Humour Beings": Creative Thinking, Imagination, Hope and Serious Fun. We are actively involved in opening minds and eyes capable of imagining new forms of Life.
We are in favor of Education and opposed to the various forms of "formatting" that have replaced it!

Our commitment is clear: More Imagination, more Courage, more Freedom to create the Next Appeal: the "Erotica" of the Future. Ultimately, we stands for building the Future on Hope and Radical Wisdom rather than on Fear or Despair.

Shapership is the name we have chosen to give to this capacity to look at the world "as it is" and "as it could be" with Radical Authenticity, Creative Imagination and Unconventional Wisdom to make alternative stories of the Future(s) visible rather than continuing to solve problems within the same paradigms.

We are committed to people and working communities wishing to face their challenges with Imagination and Creativity, ready to challenge the current paradigms and aspiring to create a radically different and desirable Future for themselves, their families and communities

Our Passion for purposeful Change(s) led us to write our first book "Shapership, the Art of shaping the Future", published in 2018 (French and English versions), later followed by the creation of the Shapership Academi, an original educational project dedicated to learning the Mindsets and skillsets needed to Shape the Future. 

All our activities are the embodiment of our Passion, based on the same spirit.

What our clients appreciate

As our clients put it, what differentiates us is our powerful capacity to generate the "unexpected" and to identify plausible and credible future opportunities which lead to Success.

They also appreciate the immediate and long-term return on investment that our customized projects and approaches generate. Why? Because they go to the very essence, i.e. the profound - not cosmetic - transformation of mindsets, Thinking and perceptions in the perspective of their pertinent contribution to the Future.

These capacities are the result of a rare combination of Imagination and Logic, i.e. an association of provocative and innovative Thinking taking place in living, fascinating and focused processes.

How does it work? 

The Art of Shaping the Future is based on the association of our concepts and approaches, the capacity to challenge the current ways of Seeing and Thinking -perceptions, world views, beliefs - to make new "Possibles" possible.

All the activities and services we offer are linked by a shared state of minds.

They are designed to help you become an "I Opener", an "Eye Opener" , an "Eye Hopener" and a "High Hopener", able

  • to think BIG and radically DIFFERENT
  • to consciously try new points of views to transform the way you see the world and your place in it
  • to put your Imagination, Inspirations and Aspirations at the service of your Life and Life in general!
