Our Member Speaks… Anne-Hélène Scouarnec from Authentic Human Resources
We continue with our new blog section: Member’s Interview! In this section, we will be able to discover more about the ways companies find themselves on COBCOE Connects and, particularly, about their successes on the platform.
Today we interview Anne-Hélène Scouarnec from Authentic Human Resources.
Ann-Hélène is a freelance HR advisor, who delivers custom-built HR services to facilitate International companies’ settlement in France. This includes HR compliance, recruitment, employee relations, on-boarding, talent and performance management, training, HR administration.
Ann-Hélène is a member of the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce in Paris, which was how she learned about COBCOE Connects. She has found the platform “easy and straightforward” to use, and says that “Opportunities and Network are the most useful features for me”.
However, although the platform is a useful channel to new business opportunities, you still need to make it part of your regular business development programme to get the most out of it. Ann-Hélène admits that so far she has not been able to dedicate enough time to develop interesting leads and new opportunities.
She finds that attending Chamber and other business networking events are an important means of generating new business.
Personal contacts are of course one of the main reasons companies join chambers, though it can take up time. When you work on your own, it is often helpful to meet other business contacts face to face at a networking occasion.
However, we hope that soon Helene will be making the most of both ways of creating new business – we will be pleased to follow up with her over the coming months to support where needed – and to get more feedback as the platform evolves and grows.
