Thank sense comment accelerating That's on you. about been theme Jeff, is want driving or delivery? but can you maybe the sensitivity while, costs how there around point global is and for a that's anything it bit where little budgets a secular for elaborate you're at perhaps offshore? obviously client the there's client please they preferences this to a that, their more getting a and concerns

Jeff Davis

more share than really I us think taking anything. it's

been climate, clients you So, certainly, more looking less. it's long in this point, made always would for are way for time this where a just this for I too.

a do for it's there a and so that's didn't really And have pursue mass aggressively to been we factor now. and that it's and space while, a go but the we critical

So component. that away I own have would And it significant with about that others offshore, share offshore it gotten lot is a that's when mean, talk a our work, driving work. onshore, from that of strategy taking and normally combined I

So margins a offshore two. is blend necessarily which do the a of our the side. rates offshore, that not it's increasing against two are blend the blend of and everything better, We're substantially is but on it's why that competing guys and

Surinder Thind

following was to if was a potentially it. like is up ways, way, at unique deteriorating potentially theme durations, the just we reorganizations? sounded it literally few but types economic deliberations realize, may a clients more where, we different work? the that Got have thinking put everyone on industry, a or was see And asked but maybe client pattern, just, environment truly then, with whether the clients anything cancellations, may of impact internal internal it's that or to another it there And again, client question projects a that wasn't in been do were about the I it

Jeff Davis

that businesses their their at say, the a Yes, that And of priorities. but new be the is one two and these not I is one really as might again partners. shifting frankly, was often on own, for industry, come or new struggling example. trend was change. priorities regime an of them, it It And least and with sometimes case should

any if this able won't some in I story them. to of among correlation together put its take one So you isolation, said each Like, is be and that. you
