I do not think I can go into print just now without mentioning the feat of the wonderful Leicester City Football Club. Winning the Premiership is without doubt one of, if not the best, sporting achievements in my lifetime. The biggest thing I have taken from this remarkable accomplishment is that you do not have to be the biggest or the richest to be the best. What it has proven is that good leadership, uncompromising teamwork, dogged effort and most importantly a sense of belief can make you hugely successful! This not only relates to our business but every single project that we work on as part of a team!
Turning to more mundane, but equally important matters, is that of the pending EU Referendum. This looks a pretty close one to call and for me it has huge similarities to the Scottish Independence Referendum in September 2014. As it gets closer the more fevered it will become. I, for one, will be glad when it is over as I believe that it has had a negative impact, as does most things when a level of uncertainty exists. Our industry needs to remain on the up and I hope that the recent subdued feeling will lift post Brexit and those who have been waiting will start to reinvest.
