The feedback from our customers is precious and shows that our efforts pay.
Below you will find some testimonials from various missions we have carried out recently.
I have used Zakia and Link to France for a recruiting assignment in the spring of 2021.
Nature Planet was looking to expand our French sales force and was searching for a new colleague in the Eastern part of France.
The recruiting process was very smooth. Zakia presented her concept, and through her active search in her networks, we conducted several interviews via TEAMS with potential candidates. Finally, we decided to invite 3 candidates for a personal interview, and have now selected the person most suitable for the position.
Throughout the process Zakia shared relevant information with me, was very open to any input from my side, and we had effective feedback via online TEAMS Meetings.
If you are searching for a new colleague in France, I can highly recommend contacting Zakia and Link to France to assist you with this assignment.
One of the first things that became evident following our selection of France as our next market,
was our need for local on-site assistance.
Zakia was recommended to us by another Danish company and we took contact. Her French experience and network as well as dedicated work were exactly what we were looking for.
During our set-up in France, Zakia has assisted almost every department of NORMAL covering areas such as recruitment, examination of legislative issues, marketing VIP event and much more. The key elements in our successful and smooth collaboration are her positive mindset, the shared Danish language, her understanding of the Danish mindset and her ability to manage the different tasks across departments.
In short, we can happily recommend partnering up with Zakia when entering the French market.
Christian Bjerregaard Leonhard
Business Development Manager
We collaborated with Zakia on the organization of a learning expedition for the French "CLUB DES DIRECTEURS DE L'INNOVATION" to the Scandinavian countries, which was held in early June 2019. It included the conception, the search of outstanding companies and speakers, the search for contacts and visiting companies, the planning and the logistics.
The collaboration was a great experience and 100% successful. Thanks to Zakia’s network and insights, initial ideas were enriched, enhanced and facilitated. Zakia is clever, very professional, proactive and very reliable. She is a hard-working and supportive colleague. She is a problem solver and an anticipator. She goes beyond the job given with professionalism, attention and proactivity. It was a real pleasure to work with her as she is always smiling, diplomatic and pleasant.
I highly recommend her.
We collaborated with Zakia Schou, Link to France, at SIAL 2018 Paris, by far the largest international food fair of the year.
The collaboration was a great experience for us and 100% successful. I have rarely seen an "external" who, to such an extent, takes the concept, product and brand on and in such a natural way forms part of the rest of the team. After a few hours, it is as if Zakia has always been in the company.
Her vast network and knowledge of the French retail market and the local business culture, in general, makes her super easily "connect" with especially the French-speaking visitors, with whom we had a little trouble communicating, among other things because of the language. Highly recommended ... we are ready to renew the experience.
Area Export Manager
I recently had the pleasure of working with Zakia Schou. We contracted Zakia to work with us, at Maison et Objet AW2018.
Prior to the fair Zakia showed a great interest in getting to know our brand, products and needs. She has a good and solid knowledge of the French market and customers of interest to us. Throughout the fair, Zakia Schou provided highly competent and polite sales assistance. By contracting Zakia, we gained a hardworking colleague, who fully shared our wish for a successful fair.
I can certainly see us making use of Zakia Schou and Link to France another time, both in regards to sales and relationship management tasks in France and on fairs.

URTEKRAM INTERNATIONAL A/S
Scandi Bureau recently helped me recruit a Bilingual Office Manager, with the assistance of Zakia from Link to France.
After only a few days of collaboration with my new assistant, it appears that all the work done upstream by this team allowed me to recruit the ideal person for the job - it was definitely worth the investment.
Beyond the fact that it was nice to work together, I appreciated Zakia's professionalism, proactivity as well as availability and experience. I highly recommend.
Regional Director France & Middle-East
I want to give Zakia my warmest recommendations.
She is very passionate about cooperation and very dedicated to the task. Furthermore, she has the gift of being genuinely interested in the world of the customer, which puts her in a unique position to ensure the best cooperation.
Zakia is dedicated to solving the case to the satisfaction of the customer. She works very structured and keeps a good record/minutes of our meetings, which ensures that we follow the plan - and always on time.
It is also a pleasure working with her since she is enthusiastic, lively, cheerful and positive.
