I am very pleased to announce that I am teaming up with Time & Place Consulting, a flexible network of independent European consultants and experts with complementary talents. The idea of this platform is simple: to offer our respective clients and partners, if they wish, a more complete, integrated and personalised service in the field of European public affairs, representation of their interests and management of European projects, while keeping our statutory independence and our respective client portfolios.

Human beings are at the centre of our activities, and it is by cooperating that we go further

During the first few months of working as a consultant, I really noticed the importance of interpersonal relationships in order to best meet the expectations of my clients and partners and secure new opportunities. Human beings are at the centre of our activities, and it is by cooperating that we go further. Every contact – IRL or online – I have had in recent years, and even more so in recent months, has brought me more understanding, more insight, more wisdom, on subjects I knew first-hand or from afar.

Because I have the interest of my clients and partners at heart, since I am an expert consultant in specific fields, I have to know when I need to step down and advise for the best professionals to take over and respond to different requests that I alone would not have been able to answer. Splitting into a multitude of tasks is not a viable solution. We must surround ourselves with the most talented people in order to achieve the best results together. This is also why, you, friendly reader, are or will be using one or more external consultants and experts to answer complex questions for which you do not have the answers, resources or expertise in-house.

In practice, this platform will be an excellent tool to deepen existing and future relationships with my clients and partners, provide the best tailor-made solutions, and will open up new development opportunities. Me joining this network will not change anything for my clients if they are not interested, but I may be able to offer extra services and recommend additional trusted experts for alternative assignments.

I hope you’re as excited as I am about this new opportunity and in the meantime, feel free to contact me, I am always open to more challenges in projects related to energy and climate, consumer empowerment and energy poverty, dispute resolution, mediation and EU affairs.
