PLD Consulting was founded by Aurélie Foulon to provide a platform for sharing the experience gathered in both her private and working life with private individuals, leaders and companies who are interested in naturally develop their potential as individuals, as team players and as leaders.
Born in France in 1980 Aurelie Foulon has always been passionate about horses and was riding from the age of ten. After studying literature and foreign languages she studied biotechnology at Marseille Polytechnic. She graduated in 2006 with an engineering diploma in biotechnology. That same year, she started her career in biotechnology with an appointment at Hoffman La Roche (a pharmaceutical company based in Basel in Switzerland).
2009 saw Aurelie Foulon buy her first horse and at the same time take on her first management position. Both were challenging and exciting for her and when she discovered Natural Horsemanship (natural approach to horse training) this changed everything. As a manager leading a team she soon realised that natural horsemanship offered much more than just leadership experience and partnership with horses, it also offered a natural way to manage and interact with people.
In applying management training and horsemanship training to her life, Aurelie Foulon learned how to put the relationship first and adapt leadership strategies to the person or group she was dealing with. This involved taking into consideration their various personalities, strengths and natural qualities. This is crucial in achieving challenging goals. Success was not long in coming. The leadership strategies she applied were successful and in less than two years she was given an additional team to manage and was asked to lead a global team in parallel to the local teams.
Aurelie Foulon obtained her certification for carrying out horse-assisted personal development and leadership training (Licensed HorseDream®Partner) and joined the European Association for Horse Assited Education (EAHAE). Aurelie Foulon founded PLD Consulting to share what she had learned from working with horses as well as how to translate it to professional and private life.
PLD consulting is pleased to offer a range of seminars to share this experience and help you to naturally develop your potential as an individual, as a team player and as a leader.
