Christmas Greeting 2020
2020 has been a challenging year for everybody. Since March, the COVID 19 coronavirus has managed to disrupt people’s lives in very many ways as governments tackle the spread of the disease. Almost all companies in the energy sector switched to teleworking, which was especially noticeable within company training. Suddenly courses were moved to distance learning or cancelled altogether. Some students even found themselves furloughed and economic hardship became an uncomfortable reality for far too many.
Still, there have been a few positive events this year. The translation and writing activities in my business have remained as strong as before. And I was lucky to be able to use the free time I gained as a result of cancelled trainings to work in a secondary school for a term.
The opportunity I had to help pupils requiring extra support gave me a great insight into modern teaching methods and new tools for learning. And I was very impressed with the dedication and professionalism shown by all the teachers and assistants that I worked with there. I will certainly be using many of the new skills I learnt when company training courses start again in the future, which I hope will be possible in Autumn 2021.
I would like to wish all my customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
