Optimal Ways is staffed by a team of specialists who all share a common passion for Digital Analytics and E-commerce, and who bring a wealth of experience from various backgrounds in web publishing, agency and advertising services.
Nicolas has been involved in the web ecosystem for more than 20 years and has developed a good understanding of e-commerce issues. After several years as Production Director at two Paris-based web agencies (BDDP then Havas Advertising), he was hired by Oracle in Silicon Valley as the Operations Director for all of the company’s sites. From there, he moved to Montréal where he was responsible for the executive management of the e-commerce website operated by the Canadian telecommunications company, Vidéotron. On his return to France, he directed his focus on Digital Analytics and, with Jacques Warren, co-authored the book, “Web Analytics : mesurer le succès et maximiser les profits de votre site Web”. In 2011, he founded Optimal Ways, a consultancy specialising in Digital Analytics training and coaching. Driven as always by his passion for the web, he provides his customers with meticulous service, and has earned numerous certifications. He also lectures at EDHEC Business School (of which he is a graduate), Ecole Centrale Engineering School, IAE de Lille, and the University of British Columbia in Canada.
Nicolas brings all his experience to bear in supporting customers and building relationships based on trust.
