CEO & Business Humanizer
As a white South African growing up up under the Apartheid regime, Christophe was often viewed as a little troublemaker. He could never stop challenging narrow-mindedness. It got him into trouble on several occasions, and the age of 18, after a State of Emergency was declared in 1985, Christophe was encouraged to leave the country and seek wisdoms elsewhere (many who know him question if he found it). In Europe he studied psychology and economics, but his personal mission became ‘liberating’ himself and others from the institutional- nonsense and self imposed limitations that stop us from creating more value people to people. (he even wrote a book about it) This mission was transformed into an (ad)venture with several other fellow travellers, and it gave birth to the creation of Innate Motion. Bringing human sense to business in a world that applies too much business sense to humans is what he and the folks at Innate Motion do best, and they are happy to do this with people who work for some of the best brands and companies in the world. Christophe is always a system challenger, except at home, where he understands that it makes more human sense to conform.
