    Des marques media premium avec une présence en 360 sur le marché. Accès à l'industrie du luxe. Une société internationale avec une approche locale.

    Cons

    Une structure relativement petite pour une société qui souhaite réaliser des produits digitaux haut de gamme. Une transversalité quasi inexistante et une dépendance aux acteurs majeur du web trop forte

    Advice to Management

    Une synergie intertitres plus forte, une vision stratégique européenne plutôt que nationale. Une force commerciale plus regroupé pour des réponses plus globales aux problématiques des groupes de luxe.
