Each new year is a chance to look forwards as well as back
Each new year is a chance to look forwards as well as back. To plan for the future, but also to reflect on the year that’s behind us.
2020 marks not just a new year, but a new decade – and one that brings with it a great deal of uncertainty. The election that brought 2019 to a close ensures that we will leave the EU in the coming weeks.
