Who we are

Since more than 15 years, we consel the most beautiful brands in luxury, cosmetics and selective distribution.

Our survey and consulting demarche is based on:

  1. The scientific rigor of our demonstration: the model that analyses brand performance comes from university researches initiated by Pr Philippe Jourdan.
  2. The objectivity of our analyses: thanks to our knowledge of practices and markets, both in France and abroad to provide you a useful clarification for your brand’s strategies.
  3. The operability of our recommendations: all our consultants have an experience in institute and at an announcer, which make their clients appreciate their double culture.
  4. Inquiring mind: a worth the price survey has to be usefully clarified with a precise knowledge of the issues and actors in a permanently evolving world.

Our methodology Monitoring Brand Assets® has been acknowledged as particularly innovative and awarded several times as it provides:

  1. An evaluation of your brands based on the only view that counts: your clients’.
  2. A customization of the survey to perfectly meet your needs and take into account your activity’s specificities.
  3. An individual ("disaggregated") measure of your brands’ value, which allows a sharp targeting for your action plans.
  4. A synthesis of brand equity’s main indicators that reconciles the two main Anglo-Saxon currents of research: Aaker and Keller.
  5. An easy reading of the results thanks to indexes that can interpreted by everyone.
  6. A normative database with more than 1.500.000 questionnaires.
  7. Sharp image levers to act on corporate, retail, offer and digital.
  8. The elaboration of KPI that can be interpreted by every Department in your company and favor a better transverse piloting.
  9. A simulation software of your marketing action plans to make the survey’s lessons operational with your teams.
