Elle MacPherson and Qittle


Yesterday I was meeting with one of our investors for lunch at the base of Aspen Mountain at Ajax restaurant and we were discussing what Qittle is up to.  I started to talk about a recent presentation we had given to a magazine and on the cover of this presentation was the magazine featuring Elle MacPherson.

I held up the sheet of paper and was showing the copy when I kid you not I looked directly over the sheet of paper and there stood Elle in person. Of all the luck in the world, I’m talking to our investor about this presentation featuring Elle and there she is!

So we have a great lunch, wrap up our work conversation and start heading out the door of Ajax. I had to take the chance to complete the story.

I walk up to Elle’s table and say I’m sorry to interrupt your lunch but I have to share this story with you. I was meeting with one of our investors and was showing him this presentation (I hand her the presentation with her picture on the magazine)

She replies “Oh yes that’s my feature, and this is your business?”

Yes I reply.

she asks “How did it go?”

I say it went really well.

She hands the presentation back to me and reaches out her hand to shack mine and says “Congratulations”

Just another great moment in the life and times of Qittle!
