Hi, I'm Margaux Pelen. I am currently serving as the Chief Operating Officer at CodeControl.io. I've also been an independent consultant specialised on community-based lifelong learning since 2015.

collaborations & contributions

Consulting and building

I have been working in adult education since 2011 - both as a practitioner and an advisor.


I collaborate with new education providers or companies to design, test, and launch new  meaningful learning experiences. For example, I led:

  • the relaunch of the Entrepreneurship Center of HEC Paris (one of Europe's best Business Schools) as its Executive Director

  • the launch of Berlin-based CODE University's Corporate Partner Club (from the offer design to customer success management) as its founding Head of Partnerships. Clients: Facebook, Porsche, Burda Media, trivago and 6 others

  • the venture design experiments focusing on corporate learning (Luxury brand CHANEL, Architect Dan Pearlman, Innovation Space Factory Berlin, Photography platform Meero, coliving space Urban Campus, and more) as an advisor and prototyper.

​I also work with corporate partners to design and implement new internal trainings. 

Training, writing, and speaking

Teaching. I started a series of Entrepreneurial Talks for HEC Paris and Google with top French entrepreneurs in 2012 and launched and run the "Entrepreneurial Bootcamp" for the Center for Interdisciplinary Research's Edtech Master Program (Paris) in 2017. I also design and run custom trainings myself in the field of "New Work" and "New Learning" to help organisations take a pulse with those trends.

Writing. I shared a few ideas about:

Speaking. Latest (big) Stage: "Learning in the age of exponential learning" (API Days - Paris - December 2018). 


As the illiterate of the 21st century are those "who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn", how can we best design new learning systems in organisations?
