One of the really wonderful things (for me) about events like #GoFurther is the chance to spend time with colleagues from all over Europe.
I’m lucky that after 13 years with the Company in a variety of roles I have got to know so many people – and certainly I’ve been catching up with many already this morning!
But also events like these hold the joy of meeting new colleagues, like Bal from our Transport Ops team who was kind enough to point out the Dagenham estate as we flew over it this morning (and who gave up his window seat also – thanks Bal!).
Bal is an RS fan so I wonder what he will think of what we see today..?
Our start this morning was really early – leaving Dunton just a little after 5am – and in typical fashion getting up early meant a rotten night’s sleep for me.
The welcome at Sugar City, then, just outside Amsterdam, was itself welcome. Coffee, cake and a game of Scrabble with colleagues gave us a break as the buzz began to build…
I’ve been taking part in a really special @forduk event this week, sharing all the excitement with you on Social Media. Be Social with me using the icons below #GoFurther
