The first flurry of snow to hit the lawn.
The view from our office hasn't changed for 400 years - well, except for a few 1960's flats in the distance and a recently opened skate park!
15 minutes from Canary Wharf, the financial heart of Europe (not for long though bahhhhh :(), 20 minutes to London Bridge and 2 minutes walk to our favourite morning cafe, Nutkhut HQ is that careful balance of a place to work a place to think and a place to meet in a big, bustling city.
Come rain or shine, catch us midweek on our regular 20 minute weekly meeting walk -championed by Steve Jobs, Sigmund Freud, Aristotle - walking meetings are now being prescribed by Public Health England (PHE) as a potential cure to chronic sedentary-ism in the workplace.
So out of the back door, around the lawn, past the Ha Ha (the sunken ditch at the end of the lawn), around the rose garden, through the Japanese Peace Garden, huzzah! Meeting done!
So, come rain or shine, flurry or no flurry, our walking meetings are a must!
As the year draws to a close, we feature the mighty Mr Malik.
After retirement, Mr Malik dedicated his time to his local drop in community centre - board member, instigator and 'the make it happen type'. We thought we knew Mr Malik, but the penny dropped when he shared his life long enthusiasm and love of all things trains. We never asked why and when we did, it all came together.
70 years ago, as a child, his family made a 1000 mile journey from one side of the sub continent to another. Changing steam trains 8 times, crossing borders, open air carriages in many cases, Mr Malik painted an exciting and optimistic picture of this journey, through the eyes of a young child. But rather than being in contempt of this experience, he made it his own. We salute you Mr Malik and look forward to 2019 and working with your experience and sharing your anecdotes and moments to a wider and younger audience.
