"I attended Sophie’s workshop ‘How to Successfully Enter a New Market’. We learned the crucial steps to build a powerful expansion strategy: from market assessment to strategic positioning, from choosing the right market entry mode to implementing your strategy. Sophie clearly showed her expertise and engaged the audience with stories and examples. The combination of having a clear framework and applying that to our business case was extremely powerful. What a fantastic experience!"

"Sophie was my mentor during my Prince Albert Fund year in San Francisco. Her talk ‘expanding to the US’ was a great kick off for my project. Not only was it fun and engaging, it also gave me a clear overview of the opportunities and challenges I was about to face. I truly value her international business experience and strong local network. It was a real pleasure to work together with Sophie"
