Odile Bocandé-Koffi

Odile is passionate about People, Personal Development and Performance, whether individual or collective, and created OBK Performance in 2012, just after an Executive MBA at ESCP Business School in 2012.

This Executive Training gave him wings: the need to undertake, to give wings to his turn, to accompany on 360 degree subjects and to respect confidentiality. All this became obvious!

Odile is delighted when the managers she coaches often express how much they appreciate this “break” in their daily lives. Coaching sessions are a bubble where Odile’s fresh and neutral look and her open questions open up a real reflection on personal and professional experiences, past and future business decisions, action plans to reach objectives etc. Her success is to see her clients’ potential released and to see them “fly” towards their goals and what makes them happy.

Born in Senegal where she grew up in a multicultural family, Odile attended primary and secondary school in Senegal in a bicultural institution, followed by higher education in France and in the USA.

She then worked for 20 years in multinational companies in different countries in Europe, Africa and the USA, in different operational management functions.

She is continuously developing her skills in innovative and certifying courses.

Odile is a mentor to several senior female executives and speaks at international conferences. She runs master classes in higher education institutions.

Her DNA?
Dynamic and cheerful.
Live and encourage to do what you love.
Performance with the collective, differences and complementarity as a lever.

Her favourite quote
“You only live once, but when you live well, once is enough! “
