<p><p>really cared about those customers and</p> </p> </p> <p><p>01:51</p> <p><p>very challenging times the collaboration</p> </p> </p> <p><p>01:53</p> <p><p>between our client and MW HS is what I</p>

<p><p>around partnership which was significant</p> </p> </p> <p><p>02:19</p> <p><p>for us and ultimately allowed us to work</p> </p> </p> <p><p>02:21</p> <p><p>much closer together to develop the</p>
