This demands a lot from us as a communications agency. We must constantly ask ourselves: What is our added value?
Do our services still meet the requirements of our clients? Which new products, services and partnerships do we need to develop in order to keep one step ahead of the competition? A great challenge which Monique and I, together with our office partners, would like to make a success of. ”
