WHY EMEA MATTERS
Workplaces matter. And they tell stories too. In these ancient behaviours of recounting and listening, of offering words – whether image or written testimony – and of wanting to conserve them because they are unique and communicate them because they are precious, in all this resides one of the highest values of a firm that has made the whole world its horizon.
