It’s Monday, February 13, 2012. I decide at 15:00 to take a late break. Just a breath of fresh air on this cold winter’s day. In a shop I discover a missed phone call from Edwin Nunnink. I call back right away. Edwin cross directly from shore, but I interrupt him and ask: “How are actually with your, Edwin?” He is passionate about ‘ his ‘ new acquisition Ferry Aaftink, the farewell of Mart and the new plans that they have cooked up for QM (even at night which brainstorms by, he entrusted me!).
To borrow from it directly I told him that we have a few strong formats have figured out for the next four ‘ Gelderland ‘ specials. One of them is an exchange of a day between two hotels, in which two general managers assess each other’s company. “Eérlijke journalism so”, I say, “that I am missing in other sheets still sometimes. You are an exception to this. QM is as far as I’m concerned the only trade magazine that really content. By current topics, great interviews and good professional photography, it is a sheet that I receive each month with great pleasure and read! “. Edwin is excited about the Exchange idea. He is coming back tomorrow afternoon.
Almost we hang on. Until Edwin realizes that he actually called me, with a special question. Or I sometimes something nice-he called it myself a testimonial I believe-would like to say about QM. But of course! When should the ready? “Eh … this week, actually”. “No problem!”, I say. I write the occurrence of even earlier on. My testimonial I have done!
