Vielen Dank für die Freundschaftsanfrage. Ich sehe, dass Sie ICI gegründet. Wir stehen erst am Anfang unserer Reise in die internationalen CI-Arbeit. Hat ICI einen bestimmten Kurs auf das Sammeln von ICI Intelligenz auf dem internationalen Markt? Wenn ja, bieten sie es in den USA?
Hoffe, dass wir irgendwann in der Zukunft zusammenarbeiten können. Ich habe 7 Jahre in Deutschland, so dass mein Deutsch sehr rostig ist.
Congratulations on the Award, Rainer! Too bad we didn't get a chance to talk at the conference - it was so busy, and I think you were on the phone when I saw you. Glad you are now one of the Fellows ... Best, Claudia
