Marie-Hélène Dembour: organisation, relationnel et concrétisation
Après un bachelier en sciences humaines et sociales et un master en sciences de gestion, Marie-Hélène a complété ses études par un master complémentaire en sciences et gestion de l’environnement. Ces formations diverses mais complémentaires recouvrent les 3 piliers du développement durable : le social, l’économique et l’environnement. Plusieurs stages en entreprise dans le domaine de la responsabilité sociétale et le management environnemental ont confirmé son intérêt pour le développement durable et la RSE. C’est avec ce background que Marie-Hélène a rejoint l’équipe de CAP conseil où elle y apprécie la variété et qualité des projets ainsi que l’échange avec les différents clients et autres parties prenantes de CAP conseil.
