Pascal Karsenty 2019

Provides advice to ORCHANGO’s co-founders; formerly Principal and Chief Learners Advocate.

Pascal started working with ORCHANGO in 2003. As Principal of our firm, he provided master guidance to our program delivery team; facilitated learning programs; acted as “Chief Learners Advocate”; and took a lead role on challenging client assignments. He now provides advice to our co-founders while managing his own learning business.

Always energized by new challenges, Pascal was the very first ORCHANGO consultant to go to Saudi Arabia for the Islamic Development Bank Group (IDBG): he delivered our flagship learning program on nimble change management to a group of change agents working on the bank’s SAP implementation. IDBG was so impressed with Pascal and the ORCHANGO Method™ that they reached out to our firm again a couple of years later while embarking on a group-wide strategic transformation. For over a year, Pascal and Edmond traveled back and forth between Canada and Saudi Arabia. Their mandate was to advise the bank on all the change management aspects of its ambitious Vision 1440H (2020G) Reform; and drive the strategic evolution of IDBG’s institutional culture. You can find out more about this project by reading the related Impact Story; or by looking at some pictures Pascal & Edmond took in Jeddah.

Psychometric tests say Pascal is an ambivert, i.e. a person who is intermediate between an extrovert and an introvert. It’s true. Pascal is as cool, calm and collected as they come. Yet, when it comes to leading a workshop he’s a dynamic force to be reckoned with, both in French and English. He’s extremely focused and, some say, a bit obsessive. As an example of this, when the team is meeting to talk about the design of a client’s workshop, when most agree on an idea, he’s known to say: “It’s a good idea. Now what would be an even better idea?” Detailed oriented doesn’t even begin to describe how Pascal works. Having delivered workshops in 14 different countries, his finger is always on the pulse of what’s trending around the world.

Pascal loves dancing with his wife in the dining room of their Montreal home, crossing things off his bucket list, and making his son giggle to his own rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
