Introducing

A Developing Story

Self-Reflections of a Progress-Guided Consultancy
For 12 years, we’ve prided ourselves on being a consultancy guided by progress. But what does that really mean?
This annual report is an attempt to formalize what has always been a gut instinct at SYLVAIN, and to take stock of our performance (and progress) so far. It's a story of how we got here, what we're doing, and where we hope to arrive. Consider it SYLVAIN’s take on an Impact Report.
