Our agency

We support corporate and institutional leaders at the crossroads of their identity, strategy, management, and communication challenges.   
As a corporate communication consulting agency, we provide strategic consulting, content creation and production, event conceptualization and implementation on transversal challenges of identity, engagement, and influence.



Building a strong and lasting identity and brand; expressing and staging it in a unique, attractive, and engaging way; embodying it and bringing it to life through the executive and managerial team. 
In the long term, from history to the distant future.   


Structure and express the challenges, ambitions, and content of key projects, integrating them the right way and dynamically in the organization’s mission, purpose, and the current context of its environment.   
In the short and medium terms, and in the near future.   


Listening, speaking up, and making a stand; creating opportunities to nurture a constructive relationship with stakeholders, making them active ambassadors of an idea, cause or project; anticipating and managing crises where the organization is questioned, sometimes deeply challenged.   
Day-to-day, here and now, sometimes in emergency.
