Christian de Boisredon


When Christian was 24, he travelled around the world, looking for men and women who were moving the world forward and after this “World Hope Tour”, the book written by Christian and his two travel companions (L’Espérance Autour du Monde - Hope Around the World) became a bestseller. While a consultant in strategy and change management in the consulting firm BearingPoint, he co-founded a social business, Reporters of Hope (Reporters d’Espoirs) and encouraged a large group of media CEOs (TV, Radio, Press and Internet…) to focus on solution-based information. In 2007, Reporters of Hope (Reporters d’Espoirs) became the first and only press agency specialized in the treatment of initiatives and solutions. In 2006, Christian co-founded a production company to produce a feature film based on the life of Professor Muhammad Yunus, inventor of Microcredit and in 2011 he created a social business start-up with a similar underlying philosophy to "Reporters of Hope" but with an international approach. Sparknews is a TV and press reports aggregator focused on solution based content.
