Dear Reader,

 

Three weeks ago I attended the Middle East Energy exhibition in Dubai. Less than two weeks after my return, we had to make a decision on working from home because of the global measures to fight against the Covid 19 pandemic. In addition to this, three days before writing this message, Zagreb was hit by the strongest earthquake in the last 140 years, causing a lot of damage. Many were injured, and one girl died. So, now I am siting in my room and working while my kids are attending online school classes from their rooms. School boards have been replaced by mobile phones and tablets. It is quite common to hear small kids screeming while you are talking to a business partner. It has been quite a big change in a short time, not only in doing business, but also in living.
