The Most Important Gift I Forgot

I stepped off British Airways flight #0113 into JFK airport last week and was immediately swept up. The energy of New York and the excitement of the holiday season greeted me right along with the rushing people and traffic.

After the past several months working alone from my quiet London home at a convalescent’s pace and in relative isolation, I felt the vitality of both city and season pick me up like a giant hand and propel me into the arms of Team TTT&T and our much-anticipated four-day marathon huddle.

I’m so grateful to be back in the city I still consider “home,” and to be working alongside such talented and generous people again.

Together, we reflected on the successes of the last year, and we brainstormed how to build on them in the three, six, and twelve months ahead.
