A celebratory look at the news before we close for the holidays
This week’s news is unashamedly festive.
Starting off with a heart-warming tale of how a determined group of carolers returned to the empty streets of London to restore cheer and hope for a return to a Dickensian Christmas. We offer some help on what to read over the holidays including: Deloitte’s Insights’ 2021 suggested reading; The Aspen Institute’s predictions for 2022 and the WEF’s best business books of the year. We end with a heart-warming story of a house in the Isle Wight that, with some outrageous Yuletide decorations, is raising spirits and funds for suicide charities.
Wishing all our community ‘Happy Holidays’ and thanks for your support this year. We will be back with more news and views in 2022!
