How Curious!

September 6 · Issue #51 · View online

A short monthly newsletter packed with awesome new discoveries and personal recommendations! #Books #Podcasts #Tech #Humour #Psychology #BestOfTheWeb


Happy September and welcome to the 51st issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
Last month in Ireland was eventful! Catching up with family and friends is always special. Adding a Gran Canaria reunion and wedding festivities into the mix topped it off nicely.
I then hopped over to London for a music festival. With 50,000 in attendance, the UK certainly has embraced living with Covid. The continued disparity in attitudes and approaches between countries intrigues me.
On the work front, I’ve started an exciting new role with DWF, an innovative publicly-listed Law firm. It’s awesome working with a smart team that truly gets the future of work and how to enable people to perform at their best. I’ll continue to work remotely as I travel and have the flexibility to explore my various life and consulting pursuits. 🗺️
