Is there a better recipe for disaster than changing career, dive headfirst into a new industry, meet a new team only virtually, leave your home and move to a new city - all while in lockdown in the middle of a pandemic?
Going back one year to February 2020, I would have never imagined what was about to happen. I was – and probably I still am – in love with the City of London. I love its narrow alleys, its old buildings which seem ready to tell a unique story of trade and people from all over the world. Ilove its corners and squares, the coffee shops. Hence, it’s not hard to believe that, at the beginning of March 2020, as the Governmentannounced the first lockdown advice, I feltsomehow in despair. Yes, I knew what wascoming – butI wasn’t emotionally prepared for that!
