Our mother’s best tips and tricks

It’s a known fact, our mothers are usually right… to our greatest joy or dismay.
Let’s take a look back at the advice they’ve shared with us over the years, for better of for worse.

Geneviève E., General Director

My mother certainly told me too many things for me to only talk about one… however, I will always remember a tip my grandmother gave me when I was a teenager: « My darling, make sure that when you choose your husband, choose one who knows how to cook … because one day he will retire and if he doesn’t know how to cook, you will never rest ».

Ariane D., Accounting Assistant

My mother always told me to trust the process ?

Constance C., Content Marketing

Always make lists. Organization is the secret of a lifetime!
