Specializing in talent management (competencies and career) she will offer member companies her in-depth knowledge of different company practices and of organizational and cultural models, as well as her expertise in community management.

This allowed her to create, among other things, a job and competency mapping, the first essential building block in the group’s future mobility policy, and also implemented a management professionalization program.

Known for her energy, her ability to communicate and to bring people together, Odile will run the International Talent Management Club and the Institut Magellan's training programs .
