Team Lead, Expanding Agency

+33 6 65 27 08 35

Vincent leads the team focused on Expanding Agency in decarbonisation, one of the key leverages identified to propel societal transformations towards a fair, sustainable and joyful next era.


He has been a practitioner, a consultant, and a writer on the topic of organisational innovation and societal change for over a decade.  Prior to joining Demos Helsinki, Vincent’s already international career focused on innovation and spanned most of its value chain, from research & development to growth management, with experiences in venture capital, entrepreneurship, large corporate and governmental change management.


He is the author of Bridge Builders: Learning from those ushering the future of society (2017), a personal essay following a year-long international study on post-industrial transition. Of dual Franco-New Zealander nationality, Vincent is based in Paris, France. He holds a Msc in Management from HEC – Paris and is an alumni of the Institut supérieur de l’aéronautique et de l’espace (ISAE-Supaero) in Toulouse and the National University of Singapore (NUS).


When not doing so with colleagues, Vincent is happiest walking to-and-fro the kitchen counter and dining table, during an evening of rich conversations, good food and good cheer. On rare occasions, he has been known to ramble on a little too long… which is why he has been asked politely to stop writing this bio now.
