Jean-Yves Bourgeois

The members of the BeautyFull Club have unanimously commended the four-year presidency of Charles-Emmanuel Gounod, during which most of the association’s objectives were met.

I was delighted to have contributed to the creation of this club initiated by Jean-Yves Bourgeois. These were four years of great satisfaction during which we had to indeed overcome some obstacles but where the passion of members never failed. Our almost monthly appointments have never ceased to attract a growing number people thanks to the quality of speakers and debates. The latest initiatives in this area, for which several members, including Philippe de Brugière and William Hitchon are attributable, enabled us to benefit from the assistance of grandes écoles and turned out being real successes. Of course, much remains to be done, but I’m convinced the new team has all the required qualities to take up the torch,” declared Charles-Emmanuel Gounod this week. He will remain an active member of the Club.

An equivalent tribute was made to Francis Camilli who contributed greatly, as Secretary General, not only to “keep the keys of the temple” as he liked to say, but also to the reputation of the Club through his enthusiasm and interpersonal skills.

And many thanks to Daniel Saclier, who of course remains an active member of the Club and who has actively contributed to its reputation within the world of brands and was instrumental in setting up the website,” emphasised Jean-Yves Bourgeois.

What is next?

Many projects and ideas are already in the pipeline: intensify with the grandes écoles the partnership and sponsoring actions, provide always more “food for thoughts” through news conferences and new surveys, intensify communication, thanks to, among other things, the website, initiate an offensive recruitment strategy, build bridging relationships with other professional groups by increasing synergies, create a great annual event that would bring together the entire profession, internationalize the activities as much as possible... There is no shortage of ideas.
