A helluva day
Friday turned out to be one of the most unusual days I have enjoyed in UK dentistry. In the morning I was picked up from the Hilton at Edinburgh Airport and driven over to the new Royal Bank of Scotland head office at Gogarburn. Quite the most inspirational place I have visited for a long time and certainly THE most inspirational in the UK. The site was officially opened by the Queen in September last year and is now occupied by over 3,500 RBS employees who enjoy a working environment that is beautiful as well as holistically complete. The main office concourse is an atrium with food shops, restaurants, hairdressers, a cell-phone shop, a florist, a pharmacy etc either side (including a Starbucks!) and the premises include the only off-site campus for The Harvard Business School in the world.
