  1. Cristobal,


    Obvious your focus on "being nice", and ability to Hug Your Customers has lead to this wonderful news for your ambitious company.

    I hope that when Jack Mitchell comes to Spain to promote his new book Hug Your People, he will have the opportunity to meet you (and give you a huge hug!).

    Best of everything,
