Big News, Automation, New Videos, #WFH, travel bug, Netflix, Aspen, songs from afar and much more... 





Emotions are contagious. The impact we have on others and protecting ourselves from their negative energy is essential, especially right now when stress is all around us. Practice protecting yourselves.

Oh, excuse us: hello, how are you all?! It's not normally like us to begin on such a staunchly critical note, but the Harvard Business Review article on secondhand stress was an all too real wake up call that got us thinking. Prepare to have your minds blown in the 'Diversions' section...

We also dive into the world of automation – sounds pretty broad, right? Well, the digital doyens of Evoke distill it in regular speak so it's super relatable to the world of communications.

Elsewhere in this issue we look at a survey response to workers who are engaged in remote working during the pandemic and whether or not they'd rather stay put at this point. And also, in the ultimate plot twist, it appears that YouTube's Ad business is almost matching Netflix in revenue – and that is truly saying something.

Another thing that is saying something is our travel lust of the week:take us to Aspen, stat. Thanks.

Huriya Private's Newest Venture


In client news, we are happy to announce that Huriya Private has been appointed as authorised agent for North Macedonia’s citizenship by investment programme. Now at the crossroads of modernization, North Macedonia is becoming an alluring investment destination for foreign capital, especially after the EU gave the green light to start an accession negotiation to the 27-member European bloc in March 2020.

“North Macedonia offers an utterly unique experience through friendly locals and welcoming hospitality, leaving an unforgettable memory of the country’s fresh, tasty food and wine next to a picturesque landscape,” says John Hanafin, Founder and CEO of Huriya Private.

Huriya Private provides consultations to investors who are interested in citizenship programs around the world. As a bespoke multi-family office, Huriya Private operates on the basis of an individual approach for each client and each case, no matter how complex it is.

We know everyone says it's not all work, it's about play, too – and as much as we don't want to sound like a broken record, there is truth in the truism. Like we said earlier, we are all about ingesting the complex and the trivial in equal measure. In fact, we love nothing more than thinking deeply about the more 'playful' things in life. Read ' em and ponder away.
