According to the French saying, things can be as easy as « bonjour ». Bureau Bretagne wants to make your communication with the French just as simple as that. Whether it’s your choice for the right kind of support, or the organization of an official visit, it is always important to have an eye for cultural differences.

Bureau Bretagne was created by Dutch-born Karen Meirik, who has been living and working in different countries for the past twelve years (China, Australia and France). Karine Madec adds the French touch to the mix. Together we offer you a broad range of services in international communication, especially in the maritime and tourism sectors.
