Ah! The weekend! Time to kick back from all the hard work and research, and spend a Sunday like the Dutch. While one of our teammates was off to Rome to teach the Italians some card games, ye olde empire sent over a couple of blokes to make sure we wouldn’t be relaxing over the weekend.
To continue on from our “Day in the Life of…” series, this author will be covering the exuberant Miss Coralia Nunez-Velasquez-Martinez-Rodriguez-Guerrero (though she prefers to just go by Coralia).

We finally presented our project and findings to our client! We organized a video conference to show them our research results and recommendations. Overall, we are happy with our project and project outcome and think our client is, too.

Working on the project reconfirmed to us what business is like in the real world: complicated and messy!
