Olivier Thomas is a French Coach, Consultant and Trainer who specializes in the acquisition, deployment and transfer of strategies for intellectual and operational excellence.
A master practioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and with 13 years of experience as a school teacher, he co-created a school for gifted children in an Educational Priority Zone (ZEP) in Nancy in 2008. One of the challenges he overcame for this prpject was to manage multi-level classes, without children feeling limited in their learning capacities.
He has based part of his teaching work on his personal experiences as a schoolchild, valuing cognitive processes and the questioning process implemented spontaneously by children. He explored how to transfer the cognitive strategies of the brightest students in his class to those less gifted.
Today, as an entrepreneur, he continues to explore cognitive processes in the learning process. This is what Olivier Thomas shares on the stage of TEDxIsèreRiver.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
