À La Rentrée!

At this time of year in France it is impossible to ignore the event which is known as “La Rentrée”.  Supermarket shelves overflow with pens, pencils, folders, exercise books and other important stationery. Here in the UK we are bombarded by Back To School merchandising but this doesn’t seem to capture the change in the rhythm of life which is so aptly expressed by the term “La Rentrée”.

The Endless Journey

Wow! Here we are writing our first Change Gear blog … what to say that’s going to be interesting, amusing and tick every box on the “how to increase our chance of being top of a google search”?

So here we go…. We are two friends who have known each other for a very (very) long time, who reached a point in their lives and careers and said what next?

A friend of ours recently said that when you are unsure about things in life go back to the source of what makes you feel good and works for you. The source for us is working with a team of people who are a joy and a pleasure to be with; who inspire us with their energy and enthusiasm for all that they do inside and outside of work.
