Impetus for Change

For any constant readers who don’t know, I’ve accepted a job offer and I’m moving on from Haemonetics. Moving on, once again, from Bisonweb. In order to do so, I’ve had to come to terms with how things ended at Gamesys, and basically, and as stupid as it sounds, had to forgive the notion of […]
