“I learnt a lot about myself. I’m stronger than I thought I was. I need people more than I thought – making some friends and having them as support helps you more than you can ever imagine. There were excellent networking opportunities. I spent two days cycling with a new friend and I didn’t realise he was a Deloitte Partner until half way through. I have contacts in different teams all over the company now.”
