For this week I have something a little different to tell you about. There are times when you hear stories that help you remember what is important in life and put things into perspective. The story of Camille is one of those times. Camille’s appeal is a charity founded by a quite amazing colleague of mine here in the UK. Please take the time to read  about their family story here.

This weekend (Saturday 29th March 2014) the Microsoft Dynamics UK team are all getting together to perform a Tandem Skydive to help raise as much money as possible! If you want to come down and support the team then you can get more information here. I’ll be there with my family to support my colleagues brave enough to jump out of a plane! The address is: London Parachute School, Chiltern Park Aerodrome, Icknield Road, Ipsden, OX10 6AS. Check back next week for pictures!
