Testimonies - Digital Transformation

Frédéric Dupont

After a brief experience in the food industry, I worked for Sony and Samsung in the fields of marketing and sales. I was able to evolve in the ultra-competitive market of consumer electronics in positions such as Product Manager, Senior Key Account Manager and Sales Director. Having expertise in both sectors has allowed me to acquire an in-depth understanding of different distribution channels (pure players, mobile telephones, GSS, GSA, wholesalers and furniture).

My goal in following the Executive Certificate in Leading Digital Transformation was to work on concrete examples of digitalization in companies, to understand how to support change within organizations, and become a source for proposals in my current company.

The certificate program at HEC Paris was a truly satisfying experience. I particularly appreciated the numerous case studies on companies that we discussed and analyzed, the diversity of the speakers, the interventions in English, the faculty, the curiosity of the participants and the working atmosphere.

“Discovering how agile companies operate - how they interact, collaborate, and work in project mode to be more efficient and responsive - has motivated me to rethink my working practices."

I have been able to share the skills I developed during the training program within my company and take on a higher level position, which involves managing a bigger team.
