A Very Happy New Year from Sivin Communications

First of all, a Very Happy New Year to all of you from Sivin Communications.

The 1st of January always marks a moment for reflection, and as I look back on 2017, I can be nothing else than proud of the advances we have made, the projects we have done, the opportunities I have been given and the prospects we are having. In case you have missed any of the highlights from the past year:
