Julia Noyel

Entrepreneur, trainer, consultant, speaker, teacher, innovator, writer – I (Julia Noyel) am the creator of Art of a different, happy & healthy & successful life, specializing in happiness, health and success.


Born in Munich, it was my heart that has driven me to the South of France in 2002 during my studies.  After having finished my studies in Austria and gained some professional experience, I moved back to France where I have been living in Lyon permanently since 2006. I work worldwide (and particularly in France and Germany) as an Expert and trainer for living a happy, healthy & successful life.

Passionate and specialised in Difference, Self-confidence, Happiness, Success, Body-mind approaches, Energy work, best parenting practises, better relationships, leadership, authentic communication & Personal Branding I am focusing my research on those topics in order to help people to be happy, healthy and successful in life.

As a highly sensitive and creative, I have long-time wondered how to survive in a society, especially in the corporate world, which operates so differently than I do. Since I was young, I have been enthusiastic about difference, creativity and individuality. As a child, I always helped the children who were not accepted by others and I wanted to become an artist, in order to express my creativity and difference, but my reason and especially my teachers and father told me to do a more reasonable job ‘with my good grades’.

“I love people, diversity, creativity, the difference!
I think it is the acceptance of our difference
that makes us grow, mature and let’s move forward to happiness, health & success.” – Julia Noyel

So after my studies of International Economics (focus on Strategy & Change Management) and International Labour Law and Mobility I decided to work as a consultant for a huge consultancy. For several years, I have gained experience in various topics, such as business consulting, change management, leadership, people management international HR management, HR development & HR marketing (Employer branding) with various industries such as retail, luxury, IT, service, pharmaceuticals, automotive and power working for various consultancies and multinationals including ABB, AT Kearney, Cartus. My combined experiences as an HR manager and Consultant have enabled me to develop expertise in both strategical as well as operational aspects.

During my years of experience working as an employee, I quickly needed to deal with the stress I suffered from as a highly sensitive and creative, and I was interested very early in methods of personal growth, emotional management, authentic communication and leadership integrating body mind approaches. It was the opportunity to know very well the challenges of highly sensitive and creative people they face in the corporate world. I gained good money, however, my heart and body were stronger than my reason and told me to STOP. I wanted to have more time, more money and be independent. So I followed my intuition and quit against my family’s advice after only 4 years professional experience and with only 30 years to become my own boss. I created ZenExpat’ (www.zenexpat.com) specialised in Global Mobility and started working freelance Consultant in 2010 and felt for the first time really happy. Within one year my revenues increased drastically, I had more time and more fun, however working in HR consulting still was not my mission. So I started a coaching certification and created Art of a different, happy, healthy & successful life in 2013. You can find more information about my mission, values, approach and philosophy here.

Today, I am entrepreneur, writer, innovator and Coach & Trainer, expert in the art of a different, happy, healthy & successful life. I am passionate about my work and enthusiastically share my experiences and techniques in order to teach people how to create a happy, healthy and successful live despite of our differences. I am author of the book ‘Black sheep live better’ as well as various articles, two novels and lecturer at Business Schools (ESDES LYON Business School-Université catholique de Lyon, Skema Business School, etc.). I speak fluent English, French and German.
