Happy December and welcome to the 15th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
I’ve embraced the London festive season early with trips to Southbank Christmas market and ice-skating. Seeing Roger Federer in the ATP finals was also a particularly memorable highlight of an eventful month.
The month has been full of travel, with trips home to Cork & Dublin either side of a few days training in Deloitte University Brussels. The Eurostar was a novel, if slightly underwhelming experience! 🚄
I write this month’s edition from sunny Lanzarote, relaxing and getting fresh air before returning to London tomorrow! ☀️🏊
