TDX job – 6 September deadline

Hello Mark and Marc,

Trust this finds you both well.

As you know Alan Titchall has assigned me to interviewing Colm – and the window for that I’ve been given is to speak with Colm in August for a 6 September magazine deadline.

I have been getting familiar with the company via your website and located some background for Colm via initial web search.

He must be keyed up as anything for this weekend’s Irish V ABs test!

Depending on availability I was wondering if the week starting 8 August might be a contender for arranging a phone/zoom or similar interview? Earlier can be good. No pressure on that suggestion as I’m sure we could aim for subsequent weeks in August.

Look forward to establishing contact on this.

My background includes journalism on daily and community papers (as far back as the 80s) through to having worked with Contrafed’s preceding company TPL Media and regular freelancing on various topics – one recent piece here in support of a local Wellington trust.

Hi Stephen

Can you do this one thanks?

Phone interview 1000 words – chief of our major advertisers.

Don’t know what he wants to talk about – but make sure it’s not climate change please! Leave that subject to climatologists!

But these guys are experts in heavy machine sales and servicing.

Have a look at their website.

You will need to contact Mark and arrange a time in second half of August for a September 6 deadline (October Contractor).

Have any questions let me know.

Hi Alan,

Would you be interested in a one on one chat with our new CEO Colm to get some of his insights about our industries, business and people?

Please let me know if this is of interest and if so we can arrange a call.
