I have no doubt that she will make sure they do reach those goals, about which they were serious enough to remove the old guard of clerks. Just watch this space!

Hardwicke are only doing what even those who know what needs doing and yet dare only whisper about.

I fully expect Hardwicke to go from strength to strength, they got a real catch there. Reply Link Anonymous 10 October 2009 at 20:23 Hardwicke’s gain is Matrix’s loss!

The real question is what Matrix can do to avoid sinking into mediocracy… Reply Link Anonymous 18 February 2010 at 22:13 Its not the job title but what people do that is important.
