Christine Cayol
Founder of Synthesis and Yishu 8 (Beijing-Paris)
Knight of the Legion of Honour


Philosopher and writer by training, hypokhâgne and khâgne graduate, third cycle in philosophy alumnus at the École Pratique des Hautes Études, Christine Cayol began by teaching French at the Complutense University of Madrid, then back in France, she became a professor of Philosophy for final year high school students.
For her, “culture is what aims to make people more open, more sensitive, more human.”
In 1994, she founded Synthesis, a firm specializing in supporting managers using an original method: a detour through art and culture. The challenge of this approach consists in sharpening one's gaze, one's listening, and all of our perceptions, in order to develop a sensitive, more creative and thereby more effective intelligence in action.  
Since 2004, she has lived in Beijing, where she learned about Chinese culture by getting involved, among other things, in learning Mandarin.
