“To establish a horizontal power”; such is Léa Thomassin’s creed. She is the co-founder of HelloAsso and of the Social Good Week, two essential coordination instruments for the associations and community groups involved in solidarity actions. Owing to her innovative initiatives, Léa Thomassin has shown that digital technologies can be the foundation of a true power revolution. By interconnecting citizen’s initiatives and putting them within reach of the public, she is contributing to the reversal of the orientation of power, which is still, all too often, top to bottom.


Power loves light, yet, it cherishes obscurity. Power likes to show off and seeks hidden paradises. The dark corners of hallways, of bank secrecy, of shadow companies, all too often serve to hide the raw material of power: money and cronyism. But can a power based on obscurity claim any form of legitimacy? This is the question raised endlessly by the ICIJ (International Consortium of Investigative Journalists), of which the Panama Papers have recently shaken many powerful players, in every domain. To discuss this issue, the Napoleons are happy to welcome in Val d’Isère Mar Cabra, in charge of the “Data & Research” team of the ICIJ.

Yet, Martin’s lens acts as an equalizer, since he addresses all the subjects in the same manner, from the powerful to the destitute, from Barak Obama and Paris Hilton to the Los Angeles homeless. Inspiring a true discourse on power, using images instead of words.



Cindy defines herself as “I like to blow shit up. I am the Michael Bay of business” (the director of Bad boys, Armageddon and Transformers); needless to say that she likes to break conventional frameworks. Therefore, she has founded two web sites that shake the boundaries: (a platform to link people of goodwill with brands who wish to bring about concrete changes in the world that make good business), and (a social sex platform designed to counter the impact of porn as default sex education). As a consultant, Cindy Gallop is a long-time advocate of Action Branding and of demonstration marketing, which consider that a brand (or an individual) is no more than the sum of its/his actions. And our actions have the power to change things.
