The Company

As we enter the digitalization era, the world of business and industrial relations is becoming more and more tense in our society. These tensions, far from freeing speeches and ideas, constraints, parasitize and weaken them.

The Progressive Company experience offers a creative and engaging break-off. It is a source of thinking, emotion, mix of cultures, cross-approaches to triangulate the problems of our guests.

We do not have "customers" and we are not a "supplier". We welcome guests in search of a benevolent and protected universe, to confront the diversity of approaches and opinions, in order to allow them to apprehend otherwise what occupies them.

We do not promise them the truth translated into an invoice. We guarantee that they will be able to come and exchange ideas and concepts, deepen their thinking, compare their approaches or find new ways of connecting with their target audiences.

Values

The Company was created by three partners, with 25 years of experience in recognized communication agencies or having served major institutions and the government.

Europeans and humanists, entrepreneurs, they decided to break free from the codes of the profession to create more than a company, a new model of professional human relations based on emotion, kindness, respect and listening.

Feed, feed oneself intellectually, is to forge a deeper and lasting relationship than to carry out a simple performance.

In our Company, there are no more rankings or hierarchy, there are no more customers, suppliers, prospects. Everyone brings along his stone to the building.

At our table, there is a human community willing to progress, collectively and individually. The expression is free, respectful and virtuous.

It is the essence of a progressive structure as the Progressive Company wants to be.

Expertises

Our approach to create a story is based on a multidimensional analysis that integrates our clients' identity, vision, ambition and goals. We confront them with the needs expressed by their target audiences and the different stakeholders who influence their environment and their projects.

This triangulation allows us to build a narrative background that we decline according to the needs, the targets but also the transmitters of the story. As a matter of fact, there is no credible story without being truly incarnated.

We imagine, create, tell, write and then train the women and men who are destined to embody this narrative.

The speech of the evidence is no longer sufficient. The story adds an emotional, human density to this proof: the identity of each company, institution, brand or leader is an invitation to its public to come live a singular experience.

This experience must be defined, built on a credible rationale because it is based on evidence, tangible elements and commitment through action.

The Progressive Company develops tools and deployment plans that are in line with the story, allowing it to offer its partners a vision and operational set-up: from idea to engagement.
