Let's Play the Game of Risk

Recently, I turned the final page on Adam Higginbotham’s excellent book, Midnight in Chernobyl, a seemingly minute-by-minute account of the human-made events leading up to and following the 1986 nuclear disaster in North-Central Ukraine.

DEI Isn’t a Checkbox

Last weekend the Armstrong McGuire team was busy at our yearly retreat and internal strategy meetings. On Sunday and Monday, we learned, laughed, and reflected on our work and processes. One throughline to many of our discussions was diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), why it is important as a value that each of us and the company holds, and how it impacts our work.

A Season for Change

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven” - Ecclesiastes 3:1 and revisited in The Byrd’s 1965 hit song “Turn! Turn! Turn! 2023 is a new season for me.

The big question is what to do when you stop working and suddenly have time, space, and a blank calendar.
