    Advice to Management

    -Encourage brands to think long-term and enable them to focus on strategy rather than delivery -Incentivize top talent to want to join Pernod Ricard rather than the competition, and cultivate them once they join -Start investing more in some of the smaller and NBV brands and start planning for what comes next when the momentum slows for the big brands. Do not expect the status quo to remain forever
