Ten years of learning on our tenth anniversaryIn October 2008, Lehmans had just filed for Bankruptcy. The financial crisis was nearing its peak. And after only one year, I took on my first member of staff, Helen. Good timing? I knew Helen well, having worked together previously at the Bank. She could be completely trusted, and behaved in a way consistent with the standards and requirements of the business. Lesson two . Take on the best staff that you can afford.
