Meet the current Committee members


Marie-Hélène GODINOT has been a member of the committee since 2012. It is essential for her to offer her three kids  a bi-lingual and bi-cultural education in France for them to leverage on their fluency in English gained during their 12 years abroad. She was happy to find a dynamic and serious international section in La Celle-Saint-Cloud where they then decided to live. After more than 10 years experience in all strategic HR aspects, mainly Training and Career Development, for telco companies in Paris and Singapore, she started to work in London for various voluntary organisations. Since her return to Paris in September 2012, she is a career coach for La Ligue contre le Cancer and other charities, helping people going back to work after a long disease.
