Milestones of our history

2003 : Birth of a meaningful name

Two societies in the field of international communication, Unilangues and 4T, directed by Laure and Charles Rostand, gave birth to Akteos.
Akteos is the combination of words with Greek origins indicating the place where the earth which evokes the roots, meets the sky, symbol of movement and of travels.

Akteos was then a small team convinced that intercultural can become a decisive advantage on a world market becoming more and more competitive, at a time when nobody believed in it. Akteos started by organizing trainings to prepare the expatriates to succeed in their missions.

2004 : a decisive year

The year 2004 establishes Akteos’ reputation, with the organization of conferences on China, with intercultural coaching, Japan, the “Global Managers”, etc.
The country trainings represent the essential part of Akteos’ trainings with top list: China, France, the United-States of America, Brazil and Japan. Sales figures have increased of 100% in a year. It will increase of approximately 60% each year until 2009.


2005-2008 : Strengthening

Akteos grew in size and structure, consolidating its expertise and its reputation. Pascal Baudry’s conference on French and Americans is a great success.

In 2007, Akteos separates from 4T and Unilangues to take off, develop and put on line more than 200 training programs. The country trainings represent 92% of the trainings where half of it concerns preparation for expatriation.  India comes in second range behind China, and then comes France, USA and Japan.

2009 : Bearing or a springboard?

 The 2008 crisis provokes a slowdown in Akteos’ growth which nevertheless stays positive. It is the occasion to make a balance sheet and implement new projects including the launch of the  Nomad’ Network

New programs start to emerge, as well as the catalogue of inter-company trainings which then represents 10% of the revenue. The most requested courses cover India, China, Transversal Intercultural subjects, the USA, and France. The country trainings represent 75% of all trainings.
