EDITOR’S LETTER

Welcome to The Wick

— Katy Wickremesinghe
Dear All,

Brain fog? Join millions on World Meditation Day and endeavour to clear the mind from clutter. It will be good practice for all the booking that’s required to enjoy a cornucopia of events including The Chelsea Flower Show, Hay Festival and even a tour of the new Elizabeth Line transport hubs that are helping reshape London as a modern metropolis.

Many will be optioning talks and events at Davos which opens next week with 50 heads of state joining the World Economic Forum. Spiralling inflation, fuel costs, hybrid working, sanctions and mental health are top of the agenda. Meanwhile, Google has opened its new campus in California and the Heatherwick designed space which appears like a big shiny facetted rock is run on electricity powered by a solar skin roof. Google that.

Happy weekends all.
Best wishes from me and the KTW Family,
Katy
