  1. Dear Mr. Koss,

    I am a big fan of you and your career. Therefore I have written before about a year a letter to get an autograph with an original signature. I’ve been waiting so long, but to date no letter has arrived.

    Perhaps you could send me in this way an autograph? You would make me very happy.

    Thanks in advance and you well.

    Yours sincerely,
    Lars Weber

  2. Dear Mr Koss,
    I would like to invite you to give an inspirational speech at a management meeting in Oslo on Thursday the 23rd of February 2012. Around 200 people will attend.

    Would you be so kind as to inform us whether you want to tell the management of Airplus (a daughter of Lufthansa) about developping Talent? And could you tell me what your fee is for such a presentation?

    Best Regards,
    Bart Verhaagen
