I have developed my online communication skills. In particular, how to manage large Microsoft Teams calls and how best to communicate with others.
It was most insightful. I took the time to speak with so many in so many different teams which was most interesting. I especially liked how they embraced the remote working element and allowed each office to present a certain team. This helped harmonise the national team spirit.

Considering it was all virtual, I really enjoyed the week. They really made the most of what was on available and made it as engaging and interactive as they could. I especially enjoyed the after work events that they so diligently planned.
Be yourself. Take the time to grab a coffee with someone from the firm. Do your research and just find the things that make Gateley stand out for you in your mind - and make sure you focus on that.
