When we wrote our book on the future of work "El ocaso del empleo" we sought the opinion of a number of specialists in a variety of domains who could illustrate us on the emerging trends that are transforming the world of work. One of the names that rapidly came to our mind was Ariane's. As a global trends expert she provided us with insightful information on emerging behaviours and attitudes that are likely to influence and reshape the employment market, how organizations manage their human capital, and the world of work in general. Ariane also demonstrated to be very responsive, open, and collaborative. It was a pleasure to work with her in that project.”

Ariane made a brilliant explanation on the key global trends that affect our industry and facilitated the group discussion. The attendants were senior marketing executives from different regions. Thanks to Ariane deep knowledge, capability to explain and passion, the meeting was a great success. Everyone really appreciated her contribution and leadership in the meeting and made enthusiastic comments on her performance and contribution.”
