Exemplifying Excellence and Leadership
Corinne Bot is the Founder and CEO of Polyglot Group. She has an unfaltering will to leave a place better than she found it. As a true believer and supporter of equality and diversity, it was hard for her to face discrimination as a woman and mother in business. From that moment, Corinne knew she wanted to make a difference in this regard and create a culture that was fair to all.
Corinne believes in human-to-human communication and relationships. She states, “Businesses are run by people, for people. With this in mind, we strive to get to know the people behind the business and work with the people that make the business.” Her ultimate passion is to work with people and help them grow and flourish. Whether through mentoring or collaboration, she seeks to empower others, and regularly shares her knowledge and expertise at seminars and events, and also through podcasts.
Both of these passions were a defining motive behind the creation of her business and are still driving her in life. Having moved to Australia from France and been welcomed there with open arms, Corinne wants to continue enhancing the multiculturalism and diversity that makes up Australia’s DNA.
Corinne is also proud to have been selected as a French Foreign Trade Advisor more than 10 years ago. This role enables her to foster a more prosperous relationship between the two countries. For her enduring commitment, Corinne is deeply humbled to have been knighted with the Legion of Honor from the French Government in 2016. It recognizes French citizens who have demonstrated outstanding merit for at least 20 years.
With Business Development skills and over 20 years of experience in multicultural HR Consulting, Recruitment and Business Solutions, there is no surprise that her dream has now expanded globally across Europe, Africa & USA. Corinne continues to be a huge supporter of entrepreneurship as well as partnership. Starting out as a one-woman company, Polyglot Group now consists of brilliant cohort of individuals all over the globe and is ever-growing due to her passion and trust in others.
When asked about the future endeavors of her chef-d’oeuvre, Corinne says, “We want to be present on every continent, to be available for our clients in all time zones and be able to provide our support everywhere.” She also adds, “Another critical goal for us is to keep our family-business DNA worldwide internally while we grow.”
Polyglot Group believes in people, and its goal is to inspire businesses to see the value in their teams. The organization focuses on enterprises expanding beyond their borders, which need a unique form of support: answering the questions they don’t know to ask.
