Christelle Dechambre ACE Training

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your career?

My name is Christelle DECHAMBRE and I work for a London-based group specialised in paper and packaging.

My role has recently changed and I’m now responsible for Internal Communication Employee Engagement, which means that I’m in charge of implementing projects which come directly from our corporate headquarters in London across France, Iberia and Italy and adapting these programmes on a local level.

As far as my career is concerned, I’ve worked for just over 20 years in human resources in Recruitment Management and HR Development roles, mainly in manufacturing industries, for pharmaceutical companies.

Why did you choose ACE Training?

At first, I chose ACE Training because I felt a good connection with the team. I believe it’s very important for there to be a good relationship between the trainee and the trainer and so what made me choose ACE Training to begin with was Lesley. As I’ve also had Spanish lessons, it’s thanks to my Spanish trainer too. So, it’s mainly down to the people.

What have you appreciated most about your two training courses?

What I appreciate most is the conviviality, that and the fact that the training is adapted to my needs and my requirements are clearly understood. It’s very important for me to be able to work on all kinds of themes – not just job-related topics – it’s exactly what I was looking for.

If you had to sum up ACE Training in just a few words, what would they be?

Professionalism, adaptability, reactivity and conviviality; four simple words but ones which I think describe ACE Training perfectly. Like the informal side of the discussions we can have and the fact that it’s all strictly confidential. It’s really a place where we feel comfortable talking about a lot of different subjects knowing that everything will remain within those four walls.

What could we do to improve?

Honestly, I can’t think of anything, I’m really satisfied with the lessons I’ve been having with ACE for the last year or so.
