Sébastien Baert joins the firm as a Senior Consultant 

Bignon De Keyser, a strategy consulting firm dedicated to the legal professions, continues to grow and welcomes Sébastien Baert as a Senior Consultant to strengthen its intervention capacities and also to develop a leadership and change management offer. This addition to the existing consulting offer is in line with the firm’s development strategy to offer its clients expertise to strengthen their leadership, performance and long-term impact.

By offering a new range of services in the area of leadership and change management, Bignon de Keyser intends to strengthen its ability to support its clients in their willingness to build organizations with solid fundamentals that are catalysts for long-term and collective performance. 

Sébastien will bring to the firm an expertise and a perspective that combines a detailed understanding of the strategic issues facing the firm’s clients with a pragmatic, global and multidisciplinary approach to their challenges. 

Patrick Bignon, founding partner of Bignon de Keyser, emphasizes that “Sébastien’s arrival is in line with the firm’s growth dynamic and its desire to strengthen and expand its range of services for its French and international clients. With this new skill set, we are strengthening our capacity to intervene and our leadership in the market by being able to develop new, creative solutions adapted to the evolution of the market by drawing on the diversity of profiles within our team of consultants. Sébastien’s background and hybrid profile brings real expertise to the firm and its clients, enabling them to strengthen their leadership and co-develop a coherent, balanced and successful corporate culture.”

I am delighted to be joining the teams of Bignon De Keyser, a reference in strategy and organization consulting for the legal sector, with the mission of accompanying its clients in this dynamic of change and market evolution,” said Sébastien Baert, senior consultant at Bignon De Keyser. 

While the strategic and operational management of professional services firms is becoming more mature, new challenges require the mastery of performance levers that are still too often ignored by the leaders and management teams of these organizations. Acting in concert, for example, on the levers of leadership and corporate culture can allow these organizations to address their major transformation issues in their entirety and to bring out sustainable solutions.” explains Sébastien Baert.
