Thank you for joining NML and welcome. It is always an honour to have people accept a job at your company and grace you with their energy and some of their time on this earth - time being the most precious commodity of all. My hopes are that you make a bigger contribution than either you or I could imagine, make friends, learn a lot and most importantly have fun.

We have a very talented group of people that work at NML, I hope they inspire you and that you can reciprocate and inspire them. My wish is that you always try your best and that you prosper at NML.



We commit to ethical, honest and moral behaviour and will always do the right thing even when no-one is watching.
