A career highlight
There are lots of highlights - supporting new colleagues and hearing that I've helped them, getting diversity and inclusion in at the start of an events and content series, being part of bringing an information service for journalists to the point where it delivered 33k+ journalist requests per year, proving remote working could be effective back when it was still considered weird!
