My trip to London on business was an incredible experience.I had been asked by my boss, to give a presentation on our latest project.When I arrived at the headquarters I was treated like a king by the local staff and was told how much my contributions to the project so far had been appreciated by everyone. This made me feel great because I had been worried about whether the changes I had suggested so far would be well received. In fact, the managers showed me how happy they were with my work because I was offered a transfer to the London office. I can tell you that I was delighted to have been considered for such a move as I know that this would be great for my career. I was given a month to make my decision by Human Resources and I was promised a large pay increase if I decide to take the job. So I now have a lot of thinking to do. As an extra incentive I was promised a company car so that makes it an even harder offer to turn down.
