The Salon de la Sagesse is a non-profit association created with the purpose of uniting the pioneering voices of our young generations, to leave a lasting impact in the world. Through the organisation of events, discussions and collaborations, the Salon brings together a group of creative minds, visionaries, pioneers and change makers from all fields and from all over the globe, into one thriving community. The Salon is the mother association of the Journal d’Ambroisie and the ACMC.
“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”
Quote by Goethe
I am Alexandre Moll de Alba Galic. I come from a multicultural family (Spanish-Belgian-French) and have lived in foreign countries since I was born (Luxembourg, Austria, UK). I consider London one of the most important cultural, social and economic hubs of the world and have therefore chosen it for my bachelor studies. I graduated in June 2021 with a BA from KCL in German & Management, where I strongly focused on marketing-related subjects. My studies and exposures have led me to pursue my professional career with a leading marketing sector player (Buchanan, WPP). I am thus working with the world’s biggest packaged goods brands and interacting with some of Europe’s greatest marketing minds. Outside of work, I am developing a platform for creatives designed to make distinctive, lasting and substantial improvements in the industry. My previous work experience with my partners has helped me gain managerial and coordination skills: we created and launched our events and conciergerie business where we hosted over 120 events and designed/launched a successful internet-based reservation platform covering 90 premises around Europe. I am firmly committed to creating a great firm very soon that attracts, develops, excites and retains exceptional artists around the globe.

Hi, my name is Tamas, I am a software engineer in Fin-Tech and Cyber Security based in London. I have been working alongside and after my studies as a researcher at the University of Cambridge, working on the intersection of machine learning and materials modelling, which lead to academic publications. On top of the science and technology interests, I am curious about a great variety of fields and arts that I am pleased to discuss at Salon meetings. You will find that I am happy to ask the seemingly stupid questions as well and speak my mind about the topics on such meetings, I particularly value that the group welcomes this and others are like-minded as well.
