Is the thought of a summer spent in the office making you search for last minute travel deals?
Whether it’s facing a sweltering morning commute, freezing under the over-enthusiastic aircon during a deskbound lunch-hour, or braving the train service during rush hour, we have come up with the perfect solution to all these summer troubles:
Early breakfast events mean missing the bulk of the traffic and have the added bonus of it being socially acceptable to boost your business while eating a bacon butty in public.
Get out of the office for a couple of hours at lunchtime and enjoy a brief foray into the sunshine on the way to one of the many fab events that are happening in July and August. You will feel like you are working in a beautiful sun-drenched Mediterranean city – and will defrost the spot on the back of your neck which has borne the brunt of the icy blasts from above all morning.
Or if you are already dreading the thought of being nose to armpit with an array of strangers on the way home catch a later, emptier train and drop into an early evening meet-up.
