November saw the team in Tanzania sell their first International Report. Well done, to Andrew Carter, Dave Kahwa, Edwin Urasa,Shane Moldenhauer & Pamela Uriyo, the first of many we’re sure!
Congratulations to Remy Damato, Melissa Pace & Antonio Di Bari, for already breaking all records regarding the creation of D&B reports. Even with another month to go, they are already 10% up on last year in not only the number of reports but also on the total revenue. This is big indication on the quality and speed in which these reports are delivered by the team. There has to be something said for their teamwork as they also won the bridge building contest at the last Values Seminar in Malta.
From the photo, we’d advise them not to swap their day jobs for construction!
