Guest speakers:
Murielle Lona, owner of Food for Thought, and Chantal Samson, founder of Business Writers

Murielle Lona was an economist for 17 years, specialized in Health Economics. In 2008, she decided to change radically by starting her own business Food For Thought. She organises and animates debates on different topics (business, economy, psychology, spirituality…). Besides, she works as a journalist, collaborating with Chantal Samson.
She was one of the 10 finalists of the prestigious Award : Business Personality 2009.
Murielle has just published her first novel “Je change de fréquence”, a book which gives some keys to anyone willing to change his/her life. Her novel is published in Canada by the psychologist Yvon Dallaire.

PWI are delighted to announce that Murielle will be signing copies of this latest book at the networking dinner!

Chantal Samson was a journalist at Trends-Tendances from 1986 to 2002, where she covered many economic, financial and political issues.  From 2003 to 2004, she assumed the responsibility for the banking and insurance sectors at L’Echo.  In September 2004, she founded with Marie Brandeleer the writing and editorial consulting agency Business Writers.

Chantal has co-authored with Livio Serafini « De la Chrysalide au papillon », an unauthorised political biography of Elio Di Rupo (Editions Luc Pire, 1997).
Since 2008, she wrote four books with Bruno Colmant, Deputy CEO Ageas :
“Economie européenne : L’influence des religions” (Anthemis, 2008)
“2008, l’année du krach” (Larcier-De Boeck, 2008)
