Ah January, you’ve been a struggle. Having missed Christmas last year, I embraced every opportunity to take it to a whole new level this year, and then clung on to it for as long as I possibly could – the tinsel came off from around the mirror last Monday. The whole place seems a little bare, even dull. We handed in our last group project a few weeks ago and it’s hard not to feel a little lost.
I join many other ambitious resolution-makers once again in my local gym, trying to reverse the effects of much mulled wine and burn off the many mince-pie-calories. Then amidst the doom, gloom and reluctant exercise, we get assigned our new groups. I’m back in to lectures in Bankers and things start looking up.
Our first presentation is on Management Accounting; making decisions and driving the right behaviours. 2011 was a very tough year for many, especially non-profits, this topic couldn’t have come at a better time and I’m impressed and grateful for practical perspective Christoph takes. Mikes drawn up a Gantt chart of our work flow, Shanes got to grips with the numbers, Billy’s working on the report and I’ve set us all up on dropbox and Skype. It’s great to feel part of a team, and (almost!) ready for whatever the MBA puts our way this semester…
