What an amazing video, i really love it but i must recommend Mrs Elena Gabriella, she has been saving lives, I make huge profits on my investment since I started trading with Mrs Elena Gabriella, her trading strategies are top notch coupled with the little commission she charges on her trade.
Don't think of a product as "quality" or not. Think of it in terms of its "qualities". What are all its qualities? This plays a part into its selling price.

Philippe Sails
Philippe Sails:
They identify relatively early in the 80's the so-called "Vendome Syndrome", by the name of the square where most French high-end jewelers were and are based in Paris.
It describes the change in behavior of salespersons of luxury goods who identify so much with their product that they believe that are actually potential buyer and tend to mimic the worse behavior of their more nasty clients, which turns to be contra-productive.
No idea why I remembered this when hearing this young lady dressed in white.

28:36, well well.. If the FED and ECB printing was "unbelievably high" then.. What would he say now?
Not the most incisive questioning from the union in the presence of the world's 14th or so richest man. "Which brand of champagne, made by your group, is your favourite?" Har har, let us toast!

about leaving euro: he made his company in france without the euro... lol
This man unlike Bezos, Zukerburg, Gates, and Buffet actually has some real class, etiquette, grace, and elegance, and hopefully contributes more
good for humanity.

I guess we’re in the “20% bad” right now 🤷🏽‍♀️
also, quality nowerday means its produced fairly, envrionmentally friendly, animal friendly. are lv products produced like that? i dare to doubt actually......
Arnault needs to fight for better wages and benefits for the workers that makes Arnaults products.

HH Schrader:
Incredibly focused, concentrated, knowledgeable, no-nonsense, inspiring man. I'd never be able to meet him personally but this comes close to it. Suddenly I felt I realized why he is so successful. People buy his products because they are good, refined, on top of our times and traditional in the sense that they connect to a past perceived as glorious and timeless -- which actually might - just might - mean eternal. They walk you the extra mile on the last few centimeters. Absolutely admirable. 😄

Dear Mr Arnault. I am not sure what ure gonna think about this idea? i.e. its about COLLECTORS ITEMS. Rare, the last piece/few pieces/survival piece, antiques in term of its age/production size, beautiful/artistic design, amazing materials compositions, with histories/legacy attached to it, highly sought/search for etc etc having said all these...imagining ure able to produce ur selected collectibles, modify/improve/retained few or all of its aesthetics and got potential market for it...or.....have u ever thought of the probabilities of ur products now (lmvh, remova, taq heur, tifanny co etc have millions of a different items) would one day become collectables item by itself, and so, the way u look at the collectibles item around the worlds versus what ur company sells...what would be the simillarities or important knowledges, or probably future visions for ur item nows extracted from the existing another words...what to be learn from collectibles of the past to make ur own produced future collectibles...slt 🙏

Diken Limbu
Diken Limbu:
He is really smart at choosing a job. Because, he could visualise the future of that career. One of the main weakness is his Language barrier of speaking fluent english. But, it doesn't matter to him. Because people wanted to work with him due to his ownership in massive brands not due to his language speaking difficulties.

A lot of people conspicuous coughing coz Arnault goes on a bit, as he should, given his standing as a biz genius.

The mediocre British middle of Oxford and everywhere no doubt sees him as an arriviste.

Achievement, meritocracy doesn't count in this country. It seems as though the plummier your tone of voice, the better thaat people feel about themselves in relation to others.
Handsome man.
