2014 – London

I left from Graz on a Wednesday to head over to our London office for a quick visit. It was my second trip to London previously in 2006 when I worked at ValueClick. I was able to see a different side of London on this trip. It was short, but well worth the visit.

On Wednesday night after the days travel I met up with Alex and his senior leadership team at a nice restaurant titled M on 2 & 3 Threadneedle walk. I had some excellent Sashimi and a very Steak coming directly from their very own aging room.

We all got the opportunity to give toasts, a bit tired and feeling sick, I used my dual passports as my lead into my global shared services team. It was not my strongest, but I did get a few laughs. I was able to see some of London the next morning as I got a nice run in the wee but hours

I stayed at the Apex London Wall hotel, which was very nice.

I visited the lynda.com London office that day and attended a few meetings with the local team followed  by the company meeting. We also visited the new possible space they are looking at within London at a WeWork location.  We have to find a new office by April and the WeWork location looks amazing. What an incredible up and coming company as well (5B in valuation)

I visited a few spots at lunchtime and eat at a really good Crowdfunded Hummus bowl restaurant. I think this would go over well in the U.S
