La bonne communication… un des conseils de Olivier Caré-ActionCoach Québec!

Passionné par l’aviation depuis son plus jeune âge, Olivier Caré a suivi des études d’ingénieur en mécanique aéronautique mais son goût pour l’entrepreneuriat et les technologies de l’information l’ont conduit sur une autre voie.

Ces 25 dernières années, il a donc évolué dans ce domaine, tout d’abord comme Directeur Technique Associé, puis dirigeant d’une entreprise spécialisée dans les Services informatiques pour les PME en France. Le développement de cette structure lui a permis de vivre plusieurs projets d’acquisition, fusion et cession dans un contexte international.

En 2014, il quitte la France pour le Québec afin de rejoindre l’équipe TI d’un grand groupe financier Canadien. Ayant occupé différentes fonctions de gestion dont celle de Directeur de la Sécurité de l’Information, et désireux de lancer un nouveau projet en tant qu’entrepreneur, il quitte le groupe en 2019 pour créer sa structure spécialisée dans l’accompagnement des dirigeants d’entreprises en s’appuyant sur une franchise déployée dans plus de 80 pays (ActionCOACH).

Sa priorité pour la suite de sa carrière est d’associer recherche de sens, respect de ses valeurs et actions en contribuant au développement de l’entreprenariat au sein de sa communauté. On le décrit comme étant rigoureux, professionnel, humain, loyal, curieux, et doté d’une forte capacité d’adaptation.

Marié et père de deux adolescents de 16 ans et 18 ans, il saisit toute l’importance d’avoir un équilibre entre sa vie professionnelle et personnelle.

Muraly Srinarayanathas is the Executive Chairman of 369 Global Inc., a rapidly growing business conglomerate based in Toronto with interests in education and training, financial services, creative and entertainment, venture capital, and more. Having lived and worked in North America, Europe, South Asia, and Southeast Asia for over 25 years, Muraly possesses not only a strong business acumen but also a unique global perspective and the ability to bring together diverse groups of people around a common goal, which he has termed “The Maestro Mindset”.

Muraly is a strong believer in the power of philanthropy. Ever since he launched his first social purpose business under the guidance of Dr. Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Muraly has continued to harness his networks to create social change. Inspired by nearly a century-old tradition of philanthropy that first began with his grand-uncle in Jaffna, Sri Lanka and continued with his father, Muraly also oversees the Srinarayanathas Foundation, which supports a wide variety of causes in education, health, and economic empowerment – both in Canada and around the world.

Muraly has a B.A. from the University of Manitoba, an M.B.A. from Southeast University (Bangladesh), an LL.M. from the University of Toronto, and has studied Digital Strategy at the Harvard Business School. In 2017, the Canadian Board Diversity Council named Muraly in its Diversity50 cohort as individuals with the greatest potential to impact Canada’s corporate boards and improve global competitiveness.

Muraly firmly believes in civic responsibility, public service, and the promotion of Canadian multiculturalism. Married with two children, Muraly hopes to build a strong future for his family and community; one where young Canadians (and new Canadians) can fulfill their goals and dreams together.
