What has been your most memorable moment at Talan UK ?

So many memorable moments, but if I could only choose one it would be when after my first year spent as a consultant, I had to renegotiate my contract and for that occasion I had to meet with the new London Office manager, and at the meeting he showed appreciation to my work and re-evaluated my net annual salary to a higher amount, with a promise that if the relation with the client kept on going that well, the salary would be increased again the next year. After that meeting, I definitely felt that I was at the good place to work.
