No, being naïve and candid does not suit me. I prefer the term « optimistic ». One does not succeed by being ingenuous.
Perhaps you should ask my wife and my collaborators. I like to think I am tenacious rather than stubborn. Tenacity implies resolutely and confidently pursuing your dreams, while being obstinate often means a refusal to acknowledge one’s errors.
Keeping calm under pressure?
I have often been reproached for having an exuberant character and making hasty decisions. I am working on this with a personal coach.
Quality of networks…
I am a man with many networks. I enjoy creating a sense of belonging, of adherence. This is likely due to the Scout values I picked up as a child but also my experience as President of the Student Body at the ENSAIS and President of the CCE (Conseillers au Commerce Extérieur), to my belonging to the APM (Association for the Progress of Management). My friends and collaborators are vital to me. I accept their criticism, which I believe can only help me improve.
One who perseveres is one who remains firm and resolute when making a decision or carrying out an action ; he displays consistency, tenacity. It describes someone who, regardless of obstacles, continues to work towards achieving a goal. This is undoubtedly a quality that is representative of who I am.
My motto is « Make your life a dream, and a dream a reality ». My dream was to create Natec Medical: twenty-one years later, we are diversifying our activities with the help of a laboratory, Abiolabs, and Umbrella Corp, our business solutions provider company (Finances, IT, Communications and Facilities Management). In the near future, I would love to make Natec a liberated company, a managerial concept based on the “No Rule, No Regulation” concept. It is however essential that my collaborators share and encapsulate my vision.
This is my « Trust me, I’m an engineer » side. A quality that is, without a doubt, tied to tenacity. My failures and successes have taught me that by fighting for your convictions, you can achieve your goals.
A sense of opportunity
My biggest strength is my ability to identify, create and hunt down opportunities. The growth opportunities for Mauritius in the manufacturing of medical devices are immense. Mauritius has the ability to implement a field in the production of these medical devices, a medical devices cluster. We are working on convincing the Government. It’s a matter of playing your cards right.
For a long time I served as the leader of my company, embodying its sectoral expertise and colossal projects. Envisioning things that others don’t yet see, being capable of motivating others, possessing the acumen to build and develop a business as well as the courage to make the right decisions. I remain the Captain of the Natec ship but have delegated more functions to my team so that I can wholly dedicate myself to personal projects.
