Born and raised in Essex, Christophe along with his wife Julie, currently runs a successful entertainment’s company in Jersey while also keeping up a full time office role as Head of Staff Engagement for a local company. When not in the office, as a passionate communicator Christophe can often be found teaching dance classes in Jersey to children and adults as well as coaching local business owners in the fine art of public speaking. Contagiously positive, Christophe firmly believes that everyone has an abundance of talent and opportunity and simply needs to learn how to unlock the secrets. When not performing himself, Christophe advises and produces various professional and amateur productions as well as judging for the largest dance competition in the world, the Dance World Cup. Through his love of all things ‘performing’ many people assume Christophe is extremely confident – however he is always quick to point out that he believes that confidence doesn’t actually exist – it’s simply a collection of fears getting in your way, stopping you achieving – remove the fear or concern and you will move forward – without ‘adding’ any confidence.
