Fred COLLAY

Entrepreneur, Communications Skills Trainer and Consultant

Fred’s entire professional life has been based on learning and discovering new things. He has always been interested in languages and helping people communicate better. In 1994, in France, he graduated with a major in Communications and Journalism, and then a year later, in Public law. In 2000, the adult education centre where Fred was following a course on Internet Marketing decided to hire him as a trainer. This was the start of his career, first as a career coach, and then as a language trainer. Fred started his own business in 2005 in Paris, and sold the customer portfolio in 2007 when he decided to emigrate to Vancouver, BC with his wife and children. There, with a fellow Frenchman, Fred launched ByNature Design, a living wall and live indoor decoration business – the first of its kind in Canada. During that time, he also became more involved with translation (several websites and applications, 7 books published). Since his return to Paris in 2015, Fred has joined LingoFacto and has focused on helping small businesses and future entrepreneurs prepare for the international market in the Paris area.
