As a dedicated BHP employee and project manager of the Law Donut, last year I thought it only right that I should conduct some rigorous hands-on research on the effectiveness of our guidance – I went on maternity leave. Ten months on, I have returned to the (new!) BHP offices and am ready to put what I have learned back into the Donut. I will be turning my attention back to Law Donut and making sure the fantastic content on our most popular Donut is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guidance you can find on the web. I will also be working on Small Business Update, sourcing relevant articles for clients to use in their business newsletters. Sadly I won’t be picking up my work with our law firms on their legal e-newsletters and I will miss working with the likes of Sam Howe at B P Collins and Tim Halstead at Shulmans. Unfortunately, my new part-time hours mean I won’t be available at the crucial times.
Since I’ve been away things have certainly moved on at BHP. Not only are we occupying swish new offices (I can’t say I’ll miss the wonky walls and pokey staircases of the Grove Road office) but we’re pursuing exciting new projects, have welcomed new employees and, sadly, said goodbye to others. I’ve been getting to grips with new IT systems and trying to remember old passwords but, give it a week or two, and my poor addled baby-brain should be back on tip-top form.
