Sometimes I find cold hard data can be quite the comfort. If one were only to have been reading the headlines in 2023, the prospect of hope would feel more...2019. 

In truth, despite challenging times ahead there remains an energy and optimism in the market that is determined to recover, succeed and evolve beyond the negative headlines. 

I count myself lucky to be in the business of talent, at a time where innovation and effort have never been more instrumental in a company's success.  I'm rooting for the optimists this year, I hope you are too.
