Maria and I negotiated the security and content protection requirements between some major UK services and the US Studio I worked for.
Having now moved on to work directly for services similar to those that Maria was responsible for, I appreciate even more what a great job she performed. Her ability to propose language in agreements was always technically correct and creative. This is especially difficult when dealing with pioneering TV technology where the supposed risks are not yet fully known and the guidelines very strict.
Maria would always move negotiations on positively. I hope to conduct my business in a similar fashion to her.
Maria is fun and fantastic to work with.
