Emmanuelle Marcos

Love in Leadership’s Founder

My background

After obtaining my Master’s degree from the European School of Management in Strasbourg, I devoted the first 18 years of my professional career to exploring consumer behaviors, needs and beliefs and transforming them into business development opportunities. Marketing Manager at Bacardi-Martini France, then Research Director at Cadbury Western Europe, then EMEA for the chewing gum category, and member of the Executive Committee, I contributed to the definition and successful implementation of numerous growth strategies.

5 years spent at the Nestlé Group’s world headquarters in Vevey, gave me the opportunity to lead very innovative projects allowing me to measure the real impact of different marketing & communication actions on the image and commercial performance of brands. I also played an advisory role for Nestlé marketing teams worldwide, on brand issues and digital communication strategies.

It was when I took over the General Management of a Swiss chocolate factory that I was able to understand the company in its entirety.  I successfully experimented with a leadership approach inspired by the definition and implementation of a relevant purpose and nourished by strong corporate values. I have moved the organization towards more professionalism, authenticity and caring, with a very positive impact on collaborator engagement, quality of decision making and financial results.

As a certified holistic coach, I awaken business leaders to the intelligence of the heart and the mind, in order to liberate their potentials and increase the economic performance of their company. I am based in the French speaking part of Switzerland where I created Love in Leadership.

My partners

My professional career and my commitment to different communities have given me many opportunities to collaborate with professionals in the field of business support, both in human resources and in strategic development consulting. I thus have a vast network of experts with complementary experience and know-how, which allows me to put together tailor-made teams, bringing together all the skills required to make each project a success.

  • Through the MOM21 network, created more than 10 years ago and inviting to explore new management methods for the company of the XXIst century, I have the opportunity to work with different professionals in the field of business support (coaches, psychologists, experts in change management …), sharing similar values to mine and having complementary know-how in human resources. I am happy to call on their skills when necessary.

  • Rocket Thinking is a very innovative French consulting company, specialized in the deployment of sustainable growth strategies, based on the redefinition of brand purpose and fed daily by the intelligence of data and digital. I am part of the Rocket Thinking adventure by accompanying its leaders on strategic and organizational issues and by co-managing its network of 35 senior consultants spread over Europe and Asia. They come with pleasure to put their respective know-how at the service of Love in Leadership and its customers if necessary.

My favorites

Magnificent books, written by beautiful people, deeply authentic, generous, inspiring and loving. To be read with passion!

If there was only one book, it would be this one. Through the sublime and moving story of a sick child and his brilliant mother, an oncologist, Dr. Serge Marquis makes us explore the depths of the ego and the immense richness of the heart. A journey full of suspense, surprises, fears and twists and turns that gradually leads us to the discovery of unconditional love. A magnificent book to heal one’s wounds and learn to love oneself for real.

Christophe André, a psychiatrist with a passion for meditation, Alexandre Jollien, a Swiss philosopher with a passion for spirituality, and Matthieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk with a passion for neuroscience, invite us to their home in the Dordogne for an open discussion on all of life’s major topics: listening, the body, emotions, wounds, ego, coherence, forgiveness, freedom, simplicity, and more. Let yourself be inspired by the crossed perspectives of these 3 friends in search of wisdom.
