What we are about

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” 

(B. Franklin)

Encouraged by a strong network of personal and professional contacts, I set up Influent in partnership with my highly rated colleague, Latifa Khairi-Biri to respond more effectively to the changing needs of students and hosts around the world. 


The pandemic has hit our industry hard and changed dynamics and realities for good. Education, learning and sharing knowledge has taken a leading role in our lives, supported by heightened networking and collaboration capabilities. Influent builds on this trend, whilst at the same time invests in creating ‘learning experiences’ that are personal, distinctive and effective. Together with our network of quality contacts, we feel privileged to contribute to the education of the next generation.

20 years of experience in the language education industry, managing one of the former established language businesses in Monaco.

Having worked with Stephanie for the past years I am very excited about being on this new adventure. We have always worked very closely exchanging ideas and concepts, setting up Influent together has further developed this collaboration.

I myself am passionate about languages, travel and discovery. Unfortunately the pandemic has made it difficult to do all these things but I believe that it has allowed us to rethink the way we live and is pushing us to innovate. I am now more than positive about the coming months and years!
