    Thanks

  • I am a great fan of your website. I think that you have a very original approach to many topics. I guess that I share this approach with you, especially on my fairly public facebook page.

    To business though.

    I am an ex investment banker, with experience from Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan. After leaving mainstream banking I have opened my own boutique focusing on frontier markets, and so far have opened over thirty offices in Africa, SE Asia and Latin America. We operate in a global, but fairly partisan way to the current duopoly of various financial institutions. We avoid conflicts of interest and we at least try to work on various locally beneficial transactions changing the standards. For instance last year we advised a Polish company on the take over of the French company, and we are seeing an increasingly high volume of transactions going this way.

    In summary. We are doing well, but we would like to open many more offices in various emerging market countries. I was hence thinking if you could perhaps do an editorial about our company and our original approach to doing business in the frontier markets. We are keen on reaching the people who are conscious as they will be best placed to cooperate with us.

    Thank you for your time.

  • Dear News Editor,

    The Expedition is set in Latin America – The Expedition is a British independent horror / adventure film now in postproduction.
    If you think your magazine would like to interview the director Adam Spinks or the cast of this film, I can put you in touch with him for an exclusive interview.
    The film has a great cast Latinos: Dolores Reynals and Mexican actor Ernesto Cantu (World War Z) and already more than 6,000 twitter followers (in just a couple of months).

    Thank you in advance and Kind regards,

    Buenos días,

    Seré graduada en Periodismo el próximo mes de junio por la Universidad de Zaragoza (España).
    He pasado los cuatro veranos anteriores en Londres, los dos primeros años estudiando, y los dos últimos trabajando.
    Este próximo año llevo idea de mudarme a Londres definitivamente para establecerme allí por fin con un título universitario.
    Me gustaría saber por ello si ustedes ofertan alguna posibilidad de hacer prácticas para su empresa y qué requisitos piden. En caso afirmativo les enviaría mi currículum con todos mis datos profesionales.

    Muchas gracias por su atención.
    Un cordial saludo,

    Sara Piquer Martí

    Dear The Prisma,
    I know this may be a bit cheeky, but I wonder if I could ask you to forward information about my lecture on the Patron Saint of Peru,
    Santa Rosa de Lima (1586-1617) which I shall be giving in UCL at 6.00pm on Thursday 27 March. The event is free. There are more details here:

    If you could forward this information to your email list that would be wonderful.
    Many thanks!
