I am a seasoned software designer, developer and consultant. In business since 1998. Having worked for many years in public and private sectors in different countries, I have gained deep understanding of various approaches to software development processes. Exposure to multiple cultures, work with demanding clients in fast paced environments developed my communication and business skills. My approach is result-oriented, constructive and pragmatic.
On the last day of spring 2007 I attended the great party, organized by RiC and held at the City offices of Ashurst. Ksenia and Julia deserve huge thanks for going through all the pains and brining all the people together, and the same applies to Ashurst, of course, for providing the place, as well as wining, feeding and entertaining us all for the whole evening.
If we want to be more environmentally friendly, we should consider reusing our glasses in pubs. When you order the same type of beer/wine/whatever, there is no need to use another container for your drink - simply handle over the empty one to the bartender and ask him/her to refill. This will save quite a lot of resources, wasted on dish washing, and your health won't be compromised.
Apparently, JD Whetherspoon shares fell, after the company issued a profits warning. The pub management firm is worried, that the smoking ban, to be introduced in Britain this summer, will reduce earnings in the short run.
