Welcome to our world of all things Exploration and Curiosity.
Curiosity Company was founded to equip individuals to navigate a fast changing world or work by conserving the instinct to explore. Francois likes to call himself a Chief Curiosity Officer for fun, and also works as a career coach and Fjällräven explorer for Africa. He was also awarded membership to The Explorers Club, the world centre for exploration, based in New York.
We truly believe that curiosity is the superpower skill that will equip us for the future- because it takes you where you need to go, to learn what you need to learn.
Antoine de Saint Exupery once wrote that "if you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
With the spirit of exploration as our guide, we help people build a relationship with that 'unknown.'
And if it's not 'random' enough- we are also very passionate about using the ancient art of tracking wild animals on foot to help young explorers better understand the principles of curiosity- which in turn helps them tackle their their own unique process of self and career exploration in a fast changing world of work- where solving complex environmental problems IS the future of the world of work. Full circle. 🐾
Yours in Exploration,
Curiosity Company Crew
