AcrossLimits - June 2010 - Vuvuzela Fever
Dear friends,
 
FlagsI guess, like myself, you are alternating between working, and being glued to TV stations and websites in order to follow the 2010 World Cup. Of course I make no attempt to hide the fact that my heart belongs to the Italian team (Forza Azzurri!), but it's wonderful in a way to see national spirits being revisited every 4 years, creating a bit of unity even where none is normally to be found. So let's all enjoy the games and behave responsibly.
 
Here at AcrossLimits we're getting into the high production season, with summer being a time where we have slightly less travels, and therefore can do a bit more of in-house work. These past two months we have also started the refurbishment of our Malta offices, so as I write this I'm hearing drilling, hammering and workmen chattering. I hope to be able to show you photos in a few months!
 

This month we have a bit more 'men' in our newsletter,  as a tribute to the fact that most of us are anyhow looking at 22 athletic guys running up and down chasing a  ball!  So have a read on what has happened in SME week 2010, our "I am your Guide" project and our man in Sicily ... all actions that bring about more networking and collaboration between our company and the big world out there.

Take care and talk to you next month!

Hugs,
Angele



SME Week 2010
European SME Week 2010 Lorenzo Mule' StagnoThis year’s SME Week was held from the 25 May 2010 to 1 June 2010.
