‘It’s wonderful to have everything in place, like cleaning facilities, a kitchen with coffee, tea and paper towels, a photocopier and data network that is kept in good nick, as well as an alarm system and reception desk that welcomes visitors, signs for packages and much more. It means that we focus on what we do best.’
