Looking forward tomorrow

Le 8ème Jour is the day after

A blank page, a day for new possibilities, the day to think out of the box,
to create your own set-up.

Meetings, conversations and inspiration, conferences, seminars, collaborative workshops and learning trips… come and take a step aside with us to invent your own special Day 8.

Le 8ème Jour is an agency of a new kind that brings curiosity, lifelong learning and storytelling together to support our transformations as individuals and organizations. Our way is about testing, experimenting in order to step in and do. We deeply beleive in collective intelligence and participatory leadership as the best lever to build a more collaborative and positive society.

Le 8ème Jour brings together those who want to prepare the world for tomorrow.

Building tomorrow up

Because each organization is unique, and your needs are specific, we adapt to you, with a tailor-sized design in a spirit of co-construction.

Because of the complexity of the world and the challenges you have to face call for a diversity of approaches, our programs are based on the practice of collective intelligence.

Because we believe that in order to help you building tomorrow up, it’s better to build on your strengths and your successes, we anchor our practice as facilitators in the Appreciative inquiry.


  • Educational engineering: Design of training programs and development paths;


  • Design and facilitation of team seminars (team building, participative leadership, change management, facilitation of collaboration and collective creativity…).


  • Learning expeditions and interactive conferences focused on your specific themes.

Thinking here and now

And what if we decided to slow down a little ?
The Nowifi breakfast is a monthly invitation to log out and take a moment to observe and try to understand the movements and transformations that are shaking our world.

It’s an opportunity to share inspiring moments and conversations with specialists of all these transformations we are interested in and concerned about : from the impact of the digital tide to the all the changes we are going through in our lives, emotionnally and physically.

Since 2015, the Nowifi Breakfast is an invitation to explore the subtle art of serendipity, in a warm and friendly atmosphere, without any other aim than spending an interesting and mindful moment at the very beginning of the day.
It gathers curious and openminded people every month to meet special personalities and reflect on various topics and questions. More than 30 speakers, mostly women, already came to share with us on their personal journey, worldviews and expertise.
