What a refreshing delight to work with a commercial partner who understood my business, and had regional awareness, a handle on the market, an effortless connection with candidates and could tolerate my Everest-like expectations. No doubt I would work with Debbie and Jo (White - her partner in crime) again on my incessant drive to solve the talent conundrum of the coming years. Keep up the great work, you are a credit to the industry.
