by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Dec, 2014
I always appreciate a well-run meeting, and, these days, many of the meetings I attend are not only well run, but well-walked too. I’ve recently become a devotee of walking meetings, and I join an ever-growing contingent dedicated to getting up and out of the office to meet on-the-move.

by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
Recently I published a post about midlife (or other) career change.
