Madara doesn't take no for an answer & does so most charmingly.

Signe can communicate anything to anyone anywhere.
If you hear someone shouting "Kails gnigethe!", the odds are it is our crazy little Signe who speaks Old Prussian, a language long extinct. She also speaks four more languages, plays a violin, sings in a choir and handles some of our largest accounts. Yeah, we know...
Zanda is young and talented. By God, we try not to be too jealous.
With her international background in management and anthropology, Zanda amazes us with her drive and social skills. You could say that perhaps that's the reason why Zanda is so damn good at what she does. But perhaps it's simply because she is ace.
Elvi is a young talent with a great potential and grit to match it.
What do you make of a Latvian girl with an Estonian name, Spanish looks and a British accent? Yeah, well we don’t know either! But the one thing we do know is that ever since Elvi has joined our team, she's become a skilful Strategist who is not afraid to stand up for bold ideas.

Dace knows how to keep creative minds running.
The creatives' hate for numbers is inversely proportional to how much they love spending their salaries on useless junk. So it's good that we have Dace who makes sure that most of our cash monies are spent on real adult stuff and only a little on fidget spinners and fluffy slippers.
