ABOUT Global Business & Management Consulting (2)
A small company, GBMC provides a very personal, customer oriented, high quality service. We value theory but our consultants are practitioners at heart: you will get practical solutions to real issues. Senior Consultant, Founder and CEO, Philippe Huysveld, started his extensive Business Development career in Japan in 1995, when joining the Belgian Electronics group BARCO's new office in Tokyo. Using his double engineering and business background acquired in Brussels, he developped his Technical B2B Sales & Marketing techniques in the very competitive & demanding Japanese domestic market, where service requirement levels are the highest worldwide.
After a very successful start in Japan, Philippe went back to Europe in 1998 in order to join PANASONIC's European HQs in London, as European Marketing Manager for a wide range of Professional Products (Broadcast, CCTV, Professional Audio & Video, Display, Plasma screens, Airconditioning & Medical). There, he acquired skills in Strategical Marketing, European Policy Making & Coordination as well as Business Planning. In 2002, he joined a Japanese parts manufacturer and worked at the London office as European General Manager responsible for the European Mobile Phone and Automotive Market development.
In 2005, Philippe moved to Paris for the same parts supplier as Managing Director & President for the European Semiconductor Business. There, he set up from scratch and ran the new European office for 5 years, being the bridge between the HQ in Japan and its European customers as well as being multilingual (6 languages, including Japanese).
Finally, Philippe Huysveld is a graduate of Brussels University (Engineering), holds a Master in Foreign Trade (Brussels) as well as a MBA from Kyoto University (Japan) and has specialised training in Transition Management and Public Relations.

By listening, by recording and analyzing corporate interactions carefully, GBMC helps its clients succeeding in their strategical projects, overcoming their organizational challenges, as well as improving their overall corporate performance. Key factors of efficient management are usually internal communication , incentive management, as well as optimization of staff and corporate interests. Our approach is pragmatic and aimed at delivering concrete & visible results in a worker- friendly & team-building environment.
Through Interim missions of typically three to nine months, GBMC assists organisations trying to implement a critical strategy or looking to plug a critical management gap. By doing this, we give you instant access to an "all in one" project manager, consultant & senior executive, with a proven track record matched to your needs. An organisation may choose to pursue the interim management route because the role in question is not a permanent position or a permanent executive/manager cannot be found fast enough. Whatever the reason, the major benefit are: speed of implementation, qualified managers, results based, objectivity and focus on the assignment.

Transition or Change Management:
Change is inevitable and is a constant opportunity to evolve the business. GBMC helps organizations to re-invent themselves (in order to remain competitive) and to respond to change in ways that create advantage, minimize risk & sustain performance. Communication & people involvement are paramount. Resistance to change has to be decoded & managed by professionals. Transition Managers are CXO-level executives and generalists equipped with a methodology of Intervention and Change Management. They intervene in problematic situations (conflict, crisis, restructuration or transformation) following a specific procedure and inducing change. Our Vision of Transition Management is based on Palo Alto's Systemic Approach applied to Human Systems under constraint (the organization's hierarchy). That is, we carry out a screening of the organization from a communication and interactions point of view. Our Transition Managers are CXO-level executives and generalists equipped with a methodology of Intervention and Change Management Process. We recommend the Transition Management Certification delivered by "Transition & Changement" in Paris (http://www.transition-et- changement.fr/#/nous-rejoindre/3213966 ). Our professional Transition Managers intervene in problematic situations (conflict, crisis, restructuration or transformation) following a specific procedure and inducing change. They are experts of Regulation & Transformation Processes, committed to use all their management tools & skills in order to help their clients and fulfill their mission. They fully respect client's confidentiality, are supervised by peers (experienced Transition Managers) and have all subscribed to a professional liability insurance.

Transition or Change Management:
We see Transition Management as a true and honnest Partnership between an organization(the client) and an external & independant professional Transition Manager. His mission includes the following tasks:
find out and clarify what the client really wants to achieve in order to finalize a mission agreement based on measurable targets.
analyze in depth the organization, or part of it, conducting a wide range of Interviews, in order to identify the inner working rules at the root of the problematic situation.
summarize the research results in a report and produce a Diagnostic to be submitted to the client for him to face his responsabilities
present the client with a set of options and agree together about a Strategical Action Plan aiming at unblocking the problematic situation.
accompany the client in the execution of the agreed Strategical Action Plan.
By working with us, our clients are better able
to achieve their business goals !
Confidentiality, Customer Satisfaction & Professional Ethics
are 3 essentials which govern our work.
