Your most recent private trip went to?
Last year we visited family in Australia which was a simply amazing. We walked through a rain forest in the morning, sat on a beach in the afternoon, we got to swim on the Great Barrier reef and fed Kangeroos. We ticked every box on the bucket list (although the credit card took quite a beating).

I have the usual range of Smart devices. Alexas, a watch that tells me when to stand, breath and make me feel guilty that I should have done some more exercise.

Initiating the graduate scheme. Graduates often have all the technical abilities but don’t have the experience to apply that knowledge. Over the 2 year programme we give them that experience and train them to be true Proactivists.
