Dear Alumni,

As many of you know, I am a mother of two daughters, twins, 19 years old, who had planned to finsh their year as an AuPair in England but are now, for obvious reasons, unexpectedly back home. Which means for us from zero to two daughters in two days, and then directly on to 24/7! At the office I am only once a week so that staff members can avoid meeting each other too much - social distancing is what we need right now. These are strange times when we need to keep our distance, when we need to re-design not only our daily routine at home but at work as well.

But how has your everyday life changed? Your business routines? We would love to hear from you about the challenges you have to meet and publish your short report on our website.

If we cannot meet in person in the foreseeable future we can at least stay in contact this way. And who knows, maybe one or another of you has a smart tip for tackling difficult situations at home or at work. We would appreciate a photo of you and/or your present surroundings to go with the report. You can see me in front of the deserted neighboring office by the way.

I sincerely hope we can meet in persona very soon again
