CIEL Group

Jean-Pierre Dalais, Group Chief Executive : "We can all be intrapreneurs!"

Jean-Pierre Dalais, CIEL Group's Chief Executive addresses the notion of intrapreneurship at CIEL.

Entrepreneurship has always been part of CIEL’s DNA since its origins. Generations before us have seen and embraced opportunities, first in the Sugar industry and then in Textile. We have since then ventured in other industries and grown significantly by fostering intrapreneurship and empowering our teams. As intrapreneurs, we allow ourselves to think out of the box whilst remaining committed and engaged towards the group’s core values and organisational structure. In a world that is constantly evolving, acting as intrapreneurs has always been and remains a key competitive advantage to stay ahead of the game. We must thrive to go beyond in everything we undertake and develop.

We must dare to challenge the status quo, to benchmark ourselves against the best and constantly improve.

Today, each and every one of us can act as an intrapreneur. You don’t need to own a business to think like an entrepreneur. You don’t need to work in Technology to innovate. Each and every one of us can bring an entrepreneurial mindset to our job on a day-to-day basis. 

Now, imagine what 30,000 CIEL intrapreneurs can achieve !
