Why Work Smarter: Live Better

Bonjour, I’m Cyril. In short, my team and I help transform people’s lives by changing their work habits.

As you will guess from my accent if we meet, I am originally from France. In 2001 my wife and I emigrated to Australia. So, this makes me half French half Australian. I support the French team when it comes to football, but I am a big fan of Australia when it comes to the beauty of its outdoors and the friendliness of the people.

In France I worked for a few large corporations. I was lucky to get promoted quickly and became a senior manager in my early thirties. I still remember the day I got the job. I was so proud and so excited. Unstoppable. Then it hit me. I was part of the leadership team and involved in many meetings. I was getting more and more emails every month. And I had a team of 15 people. I got completely swamped. I was getting busier and busier, working harder and harder, and not enjoying it.

This planted a seed which led to 2006 when I launched Work Smarter: Live Better. From the outset many people think this is about clean desk (or desktop), zero inbox, ways to manage your tasks, time and meetings, and better prioritisation. It is and it’s not. Of course, we challenge people around all these and more. But the real focus is about living A RICH LIFE, both at work and home. By changing your work habits, you will transform your life.

It has transformed my life and the life of so many people my team and I had the pleasure and privilege to work with. That’s why I am so passionate about it. That’s why I love why I do.

Having said that, I am far from being perfect. I am a constant work in progress as my wife would say. For my 50th birthday she and my close friends offered me a book called ‘Work Smarter: Live Better - the alternative version’…. This book is not for sale…

Here's what people say about us

I didn’t realise the impact of my work on my stress levels. Since working with Cyril Peupion I am less stressed. I sleep at night. He changed my life!
