The team

Docteur Guillaume Zagury

I am a specialist in international public health, I have worked in China for 20 years, I experienced the SARS 2003 episode in Wuhan (!), And I am currently a part-time practitioner in Shanghai (with my Chinese and foreign colleagues) on top of my activities in Health Innovation and Public Health Expert.

Dr Zagury, Dr Guillaume Zagury, Sir Guillaume or Gui-gui for me, is as visionary as experienced; is as stubborn as hardworking; and is as mobilizing as groping (the devil is hiding in the details it seems).

If I have the good fortune and the honor to be woken up every morning (French time requires) with 30 messages, emails and countless requests … It is obviously thanks to the daunting work that has delivered Guillaume.

FYI, what you have just read is a bio and not a novel. Bachir and Guillaume knew each other when they were (beautiful) young people, and the love story has not stopped. Their romance is so important, that they talk every night about (supposedly) the subject that will be covered in the next day’s analysis. So when you have a question for one, guess who answers it? I believe you have the answer.

Flavien Palero

Coming from the world of football (5th national level in France & Spain) / handball, I did an MBA in sports management. After working as a business developer for international vacation centers in the United States, I decided to explore South America in a backpack. Then, I came to China to develop and market international sporting events (Football World Cup for lawyers / World Health Games). It was during this stage that I met Doctor Zagury. After countless exchanges around cappuccini, we decided to collaborate …

The Rocket Team

Laëtitia Bernard Granger

Previously, I had worked for 1 year and a half, in a Parisian start-up, specialized in automatic language processing. I took care of setting up AI projects with clients and I made sure they were satisfied.
At the beginning of January, with my husband and my 2 children (7 & 10 years old) we leave the Paris region to settle in the north of China (Shenyang).
I “made the acquaintance” of the doctor, at the end of January, through his daily posts covid19 on Wechat. It was my main source of information that kept me from panicking. In February, back in France, I joined the team to help set up and feed social networks and document together with Carole Gabay the CovidFlow database  with desk research on lockdown / restrictions elements.

If you receive notifications on your phone, it’s because of Laëtitia. The publication on the various networks is his fault. You can also blame her for liking your messages when they are relevant (it’s rare, we know), or for the comments of your comments.

Even if you have everything not to like it, we love it. Because we are entitled to a daily report of the posts that have caught your attention so that we can annoy you even more regularly.

Richard Coffre

Richard is a software engineer EISTI. He has worked in IT for 25 years in all types of structure: from startups – his own – to large groups, for example at Orange.
Although he retained his soul as an IT developer, Richard evolved into managerial positions in service companies or with clients. Lately he has fully recognized himself in the agile culture he has always practiced and has added agile coaching, even if he defines himself more as an agile hacker.
His professional experience places him as the link between people who have problems to solve and those who have solutions: he is a facilitator.

Don’t trust the photo, this guy is a geek! As soon as arrived, as soon as the new site created. A coincidence ? I do not believe. And it’s not over !! Lots of little surprises will emerge thanks to our Bill Gates.

We’d like to thank for their past contribution :

Marie-Christine Hugonnard

Several lives, between IT, ISO 900 quality, writing and training in human relations, several countries, between France, US and UK, several adult children remained in France and a single husband whom I have followed in China since September 2019. Facing this unexpected new life, participating in disseminating a factual and low-anxiety analysis within a friendly team is a new adventure!

We are all a little in love with Marie. The careful work, the kindness, the availability … We are clearly on her detailed description. When I have a little slack, I give her a phone call, and after that, it rocks !! We owe her a lot. And in the end, we all have to be a little in love with Marie.
