Just for personal reflection I thought I would go through the talks I gave in 2020. To be honest I wasn’t expecting there to be as many as this for obvious reasons. Not entirely sure what 2021 will bring talk wise, you’ll just have to watch this space :)
In the episode we broke the exclusive news that the new Script Editor will be rolling out to all users starting on 07 December 2020.

In this month’s post we reflect on wellbeing as homeworkers, particularly under the pressures and strains of current times. As part of this we look at ways individuals and teams can check-in on how they are doing using resources from the What Works Centre for Wellbeing and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England.

This solution is one I use in my work on a daily basis and remains largely unchanged. More recently I was faced with the problem that I couldn’t include a Combo Chart.
