One of the jobs I did while over in Canada, was to take a tour of the Rapido Trains offices, having a chat with all the guys.

 

Bill and Gareth are the very models of discretion - they aren't going to give anything away about future projects. The boss however, well he just can't shut up.

 

We did our best, but if anyone fancies a little lip-reading, you might learn something about a major announcement.

 

The interview will go out at the end of the month in out free BRM Express e-newsletter. If you aren't receiving this, sign up for FREE now. Either that or don't take part in the speculation afterwards, and you wouldn't want to miss out.

Jason is, sometimes as the saying goes, “giddy as a schoolgirl” when it comes to company projects and models. I think his unfettered enthusiasm is no small part of why the company has done well and grown in the decade ish that Rapido has been a going concern.

I wish some days I had half his get up and go to do my own thing, but I don’t and I’m content to just plug away and go home at night and not worry about building a business.
