Thierry Chamayou VP MEA Schneider Electric IT business unit.


Wake up and start the day with some light warm-up exercise and a swim at home.

I hit the office and go into a catch up meeting with the regional team. I look through my mails to follow up on the initial scan on my handheld during breakfast.

Followed another catch up session with my regional team to review updates and progress on issues. Spend rest of morning preparing for afternoon meetings.


The two hour French lunch break is a myth for me! However, I ensure my lunch break lasts for 30 - 45 minutes. Despite my best efforts to steer clear of business, we end up talking about how we can do more.

We had a regional call during which each country presented business highlights, potential opportunities and growth avenues.

We conducted business review calls with African country units.


Wrapping up my work at the office, I head straight to an awards ceremony in the evening where we were nominated for our seventh win for this year!

The banquet over, I left the venue to pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers for my lovely wife who is an integral part of my career and success. The flowers were to make up for staying away from home in the evening. My wife is a true ‘Cordon Bleu’,  I would never miss dinner with her.
