I’m the newest member of the DG Cities team, having joined as a Project Officer just last week. Walking into the office on my first day I was both impressed and slightly intimidated, though within mere minutes I felt welcomed as part of the crew. Almost instantly I began to understand why the team works so well together: each individual member brings a slightly different background and skillset to DG Cities, which enables such success in their work and collaborations. With engineers, physicists and architects already on board, I hope that my strong sustainability focus and modelling experience will prove to be a valuable asset to the team!
Here at DG Cities we’re in the fortunate position of having a remit that includes staying abreast of the latest developments in new technology. That said, when you are immersed in this field, it admittedly is quite easy to become a little bit desensitised to it all. This is in part because there are just so many exciting developments and products constantly emerging in the world of technology and innovation - so to stand out from the crowd a new idea has to be pretty transformational.
Well, it’s certainly been a while since I checked in. For those who didn’t read my first blog post, I joined DG Cities as a Project Officer just shy of three months ago. When I last wrote, I was excited and daunted in equal measure. From day one I found myself surrounded by an endlessly kind, sharp (though admittedly intimidating) team, and immersed in a seemingly ever-growing list of puzzling acronyms and complex technological terms. Luckily, I have since found my sea legs.
