Key topics include teleworking, flexible working, days off plans, employee savings, loyalty tools, and collective performance agreements.

Many of her clients are innovative players in a broad range of sectors, including tech (collaborative platforms, digital marketing, AI, data, ecommerce), hospitality, mobility & transport, and health & wellbeing (ethical and responsible organic cosmetics).
