Welcome to the July 2016 edition of Personal Perspectives which was written before the EU referendum with the theme of ‘take action’.

The surprise Brexit result has made us stop and think again about the content in this edition and realise that all the areas covered remain very topical and in fact, the message of ‘take action’ is more relevant than ever in these uncertain times.

We hope you enjoy this latest edition of Personal Perspectives and the focus this time on taking action. As always, if you have any comments or feedback please do get in touch.
