One occassionally receives emails asking generally about jobs etc and on the whole I don't tend to reply to them but on this occassion I was inclined to do so and it appears to have been wel received so here it is in case there is anyone else out there who harbours the same - strange - ambition to work for a company like mine...

I LOVE your response! Straight up, clear, precise, tangible. I'll take this to heart and press in an these things. You are an encouragement.

Best Regards,
