Closing notes
This week, the news in the UK has been dominated by use being hit by two names storms, only days apart - Dudle and Eunice. Probably the most British names that you can give to storms. I won’t lie, the weather this week has been terrible and I don’t remember wind speeds like this since 1987, but that’s meant plenty of Netflix, reading and time with the family during the half-term/mid-term holiday. The dog hasn’t really been enjoying his walks though!
I’m hoping that this newsletter keeps building and improving with every issue. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and ideas of what you want to see by DM on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok (not that I have worked that one out yet!).
