It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to sit down and write a blog as I’ve been focusing on finishing off my assignment for my CIPR IC Diploma.
Late last year I finished listening to Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes book after it was recommended to me by the fabulous Gemma McCall and it may seem a bit dramatic but it had quite a significant impact on the way I approached situations in my life.
