It’s been a while. So… a lightening catch-up before you’ve had time to eat and digest any food vended to you in weak moment by Burger King:
- New people include a French accountant who, we’ve just realized, hardly speaks Dutch or English (and as I speak no French, I’m left wondering if he speaks French).
- Other new people include a consultant for
Amsterdamwho appears to have flown to a flying start and a second consultant for operation. This will help manage the client pressure there but, alas, will not help George spell better. The Hague
- Reshuffle in
sees the role of Commercial Assistant launched. Great things are expected of this role but we’ve not really defined it in detail yet so it could all go horribly wrong. Amsterdam
- Sparrow has been warned for lack of output. Now, amazingly, he is the top scorer in June. When asked to what does he attribute his change in fortunes he really has no idea. Still unclear if we can really build on this guy.
- Frank is keenly watching costs which is nice as for five years we’ve not had the tools to do this. Bit irritating that his suggestions regarding process efficiency are either “(s)he should work faster or longer; or (s)he should let someone else do that stuff.”
