In a nutshell
Dear friends and partners,
As you know, on Friday 13th November night, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks killed 129 people. France is in shock and still mourning its victims. We received many messages of support and kindness from all over the world, we are very grateful and we sincerely wish to thank everyone.
The recent events may have turned upside down the political and diplomatic agenda but Cop 21 is still top of world’s leaders’ priority. More than 130 Heads of state are attending this conference and thousands of people are expected. Although, for security reasons, French government decided to put restrictions on gathering of people. Both marches, organized on 29th November and 12th December are not allowed.
Wellcom is at the top and reached its target for 2014-2015. We are ready to start a new year and expect great opportunities.

An ETI (Entreprise de Taille Intermédiaire in French) is a medium-size company, 250 to 4999 employees. Those play a major role in the French economy, 3 millions of people work in an ETI and a third of the national turnover is achieved by medium-size businesses.
So far this survey has been published in more than seven media in specialized and non-specialized press, and several interviews are under development.
Three main lessons:
Communication is a key element in the life and growth of medium-sized businesses. In a dematerialized, increasingly competitive world, it is a top priority
The spirit of transmission, collaboration and sharing experiences is becoming more integrated. Communication consultancy firms are respected partners if they are able to combine strategy, creativity and production at a competitive price/service ratio.
Digital communication has become a priority for these businesses, which now have to enhance their ability to interact with their publics.
