Professional Services firms Jerome advises professional services firms in defining their strategy and in aligning their organization with their strategy. He frequently contributes to seminars for partners.
His in-depth knowledge of professional firms has led him to advise numerous corporate functions such as legal, tax, internal audit and compliance functions, since they often face very similar issues as external firms, like positioning and valuing the function, dealing with clients (internal), managing human assets, optimizing knowledge, and improving organization.Jerome regularly advises corporate functions for audit and reorganization, as well as project management training.
