Behind les mots ?

Behind les mots, you will find Gaëlle Miani

I do not hide behind the words. I love them passionately; they are my friends and have always kept me company on my journey through life. I think that words help build bridges, create bonds and give meaning. My intention is to help you tame them so that they can serve you in the best possible way.



Continued professional development (CPD)


A training, a diploma, an experience… just the beginning. They are elements that help you give the best of yourself.

You will find beneath a short list summing up the main points of my CV. But, first of all, I’d like you to know that I consider professional training as a path. On a daily basis, I read, watch videos, conferences, do exercises, have discussions… that feed my professional practice and I am always looking for new ways to give you the best wordwise.
