Can I wish you all a Happy New Year when it gets to 12 January? I recall last year someone wished me good luck for the new year in February which seemed a bit excessive. It reminds me of those annoying salespeople - no, not like us recruiters, surely such a thought didn't cross your mind - who when they call you before Wednesday ask how your weekend was and after Wednesday ask you what you have planned for the following weekend.
So how has 2012 been so far? My first Client presentation of the year didn't go so well. Suffice to say that if children have access to your ipad please be aware that in the 'Smurf Village' application a notification can appear at any time telling you that your crops are ready for harvest. At least I can guarantee I made an impression and they will always recall my presentation, even if the memory is accompanied by hysterical laughter....
Over the Christmas period I did finally discover the genius that is Jack Handey. If you haven't read his humour I would certainly suggest a look and the following still makes me laugh out loud: 'To me clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my Dad'.
Back to work matters in my next blog but for now I leave you with one of my favourite songs from the legend who incredibly turned 65 this week.
