Hi Michael

Thank you for getting back to me. Not much in terms of complaints but more
on improving the design and layout structure. As you know it looks a little
out dated I am sure I can revamp it and make it more appealing, add strong
call to actions and use latest technology such as HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript
to improve the UI. Not just on the aesthetics but I am a keen advocate of
web standards all my coding are always of high quality that meets
regulations and meets accessibility guidelines.

I know what you been by constraints. I worked for large organisations before
such as Hitachi, Panasonic, Nokia, Lexmark, CISCO and many more. So I am
well aware of branding guidelines and restrictions.

Do you currently allow outside freelancers to help work on your website? As
I am very keen in helping, my way of contributing back to the community.

Kind regards

Steven Wu
