Seven years… They say that if you live an eventful life you hardly notice the time go by. Well, it is certainly true in my case. It seems like I joined the JVI only yesterday. So many events, so many people, never a dull moment, always something new and exciting. And now this, an entirely new reality—the virtual training environment, with its challenges and opportunities. It feels great to be part of a stellar team of professionals contributing to a better world of learning and delivering new products like webinars. I would like to think that I am also helping the JVI broaden its outreach and meet its diversity and versatility objectives. Of course, we are all very much looking forward to the time when we are able to resume our traditional training but whatever new skills and know-how we have learnt in the past few months will stay with us and make us better and stronger professionally.
