What is it with society today? Is it something to do with instantaneous communication where transmitted messages can be discarded with similar ease and people move unceaselessly on?

I would say that approximately 5% of my communication have been acknowledged and less in Korea. M

However, most notably I would like to thank Mandalina Stricevic for joining B2B to help with fund raising in the UK. Her work has been magnificent and has truly pricked my conscience as I have a propensity on occasions for being a little lazy. M
