When his son turned 6, Camille realized his professional life had hijacked most of the time he spent with his son. Disappointed he had missed out on his son’s most formative years, he decides to shift the way he perceives and experiences his fatherhood. In this inspiring talk, he shares the exciting things that happened after he made that decision.

Camille is an engineer and the Managing Partner of Digital File, which provides electronic document management solutions and services, based in Beirut with regional operations.

When his professional life hijacked the time he spent with his son, now 7 years-old, he rediscovered what matters most to him: his role as a father, and decided to do something about it. He now shares what he loves with his son, from drawing to tinkering.

He decided to get involved in the school's Parents Committee, initiating and leading projects beneficial to the learning community.
He also volunteers in delivering financial literacy courses to public school students.
