Note: This post was inspired by two posts recently published by Dave Ashton of SnapCar. It, like Dave’s “Why I hired you” and “Why I fired you”, is a fictitious note to a fictitious employee.

Dise & Company Lincolnshire International does not have an existing business relationship with Dave or his firm.
