Michäel Bendavid is a certified Blue Ocean Strategy Practicioner.

We have links that are non-capital, but based on a long-standing working relationship with a number of key partners.

This ecosystem is a key component of our way of working: when we are exposed to a client problem, we seek to put in place the best approach to respond effectively; we are “agnostic” in terms of method, we are only interested in the solidity of the methodological approach and its ability to provide the answers needed by the client.

This openness allows us to master a broad set of approaches and techniques. Even if there are many capabilities available internally, it is often the case that we have recourse to more specialized expertise that allows us to better execute the entrusted mission.

Our regular partners are the following:

Michel Sara, General Manager of ROI\Marketing, with whom we collaborate on topics of marketing effectiveness. We have jointly developed an exclusive approach, the “Touch Point Model” which includes the MCA® tool, brand modules and a workshop to build an integrated communication plan with the client stakeholders. The goal: optimize the allocation of marketing and communication resources to best assist the brand strategy.
