Serge GRUDZINSKI AKA Manager Max

Companies have taught me that being able to laugh at themselves allows them to make considerable progress. you need to see it to believe it

His Career

A graduate of the Polytechnique School (a prestigious French engineering school) and of Stanford University, Serge Grudzinski (aka Manager Max) started his career as an industrial engineer and later became a consultant in management (Booz Allen Hamilton and A.T. Kearney). During his 12 years of working in the Corporate World, he grew an intense interest in the comedic arts and became a performing comic in 1991 (with French celebrity Philippe Bouvard and several One Man Shows at the Théâtre de Dix-heures in Paris).

In 1993, Serge decided to combine humor with business consulting to unify professional teams by helping them overcome the difficulties of seeking progress and motivation. This innovative method turned out to be so effective and so efficient that he founded the “HUMOUR CONSULTING GROUP”.

His Presentations were immediately successful. Over the years, he developed "Irresistible Collective Laughter”, which was a breakthrough in the unification and motivation of a company. To accelerate the international development of his unique expertise, Serge decided to culminate all of his experience into his character, Manager Max, who comes to life during his Humorous Management Presentations.


His Experience

Manager Max has completed over 1,000 motivational Presentations with all kinds of companies, facing all sorts of situations: transformations, "cultural revolutions", expansions, mergers, restructurings, growth crises, sentiments of low morale, etc.
Manager Max has unprecedented experience in communicating change, inspiring leadership, building teamwork and motivating employees. Manager Max transmits such an impressive enthusiasm and energy to his audience.
