Feedback on the support won by Aurizéo, winner of the WeImpact 2023 competition

We feel that each of us has mastered his or her area of expertise, responding to a specific problem. We're well listened to on the perimeter that concerns the practice we need to develop together. It's not redundant with what might already be in place elsewhere. Whether it's industrialization, global strategy and vision, sourcing, competitive intelligence or other issues... We feel that it opens doors and makes us more receptive to the market in general. Generally speaking, we're well looked after and we're well resourced.
