Our Team


Françoise Carbonnel has over 20 years' experience in Human Resources consulting, mainly in career transition and mobility challenges. She is a coach with a proven track record in supporting people to reach their potential, including helping them to assess and analyse situations, manage change and achieve objectives.


Convinced from the outset that mobility is the key to succeeding in professional life, she decided to help manage the career transitions of ‘expatriates’ and joined the team setting up Harmony & Mobility Consulting in 2008 in Beijing.

In 2009 she set up Harmony & Mobility Consulting in Singapore. In parallel with her administrative and development roles as manager and co-partner of the firm, she remained strongly committed to delivering programmes of career transition and executive coaching.

Since September 2014 she has been located in London, where she developed the Harmony & Mobility Consulting business whilst also being a Volunteer at Shaw Trust UK - the largest third sector provider of employment and employability services for long-term unemployed people. She is also an associate at Wickland Westcott for outplacement.

Françoise began her career as a consultant at Sénanque, a recruitment company in Paris, where she built up recognised expertise in outplacement, recruitment, headhunting and career coaching for a broad range of clients with different backgrounds and working in various professional sectors.

Happily nomadic by nature and drawing from her expatriate experiences in South America, Europe and Asia, she knows what she is talking about when it comes to mobility and professional adaptation.

Françoise holds a master's degree in Management specialising in Human Resources from the French University Paris-Assas. In 2008, she decided to focus on coaching and participated in different individual and group programmes in Paris and Singapore, accredited by the EMCC and ICF . She is a Mediat-Coaching Coach and certified in two personality inventory tests: SOSIE and Hogan.
