Girding my loins to fly to Copenhagen this afternoon, I have been tidying up, among other things uploading recent photographs from my camera to my laptop. When Doug Miller of GlobeScan asked me last night at dinner in Whit’s how I was feeling, the answer was/is that after a period of wanting to hold back as the downturn took serious hold, partly because I thought that any approach to possible partners and clients would lead to stonewalling, I’m now beginning to feel much more open to the world and to opportunity.
Speaking to a Brazilian visitor yesterday, who had been reading the Volans Flyer, I underscored my faith in serendipity (a word that features prominently on the front of the Flyer), if the conditions are prepared, and she agreed.
A year in to Volans, I’m beginning to feel a mood coming on that aligns with the card Sam gave me as we began to set up the new organisation, NO SPEED LIMIT ANYMORE. And the strapline: ‘Go as fast as you want, like in Germany’. Though I hate German driving styles, nose-to-tail at close to warp speed, the sentiment is exactly right. The time has come to get ourselves organised and put our feet to the floor.
