Toastmasters International – Supporting a Winning District

When it comes to community involvement — or even just getting together and doing the things we enjoy — we’ve all had to work a little harder and find some creative solutions when it comes to organising. Something I’ve had some personal experience with.

For a long time now I’ve been involved with Toastmasters International, a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs.

From Canada to Scotland

Caitlin at 7, in their first office

I, Caitlin O’Hara, started working at Radar Hill officially in May 2016. I had of course been around it nearly my entire life as it began when I was 7 years old.

Because the question has been asked of me many times, I thought I would write an extended post about what has led me to living in Edinburgh. Short story – it’s a beautiful city. Slightly longer story – I like Britain (despite all of its current political difficulties), and Edinburgh is the perfect city. Even longer story – see below.

We Hired! Our Hiring Process

If only I could put myself across, instead of only having this cold, dry resume.” Well, at Radar Hill we really try to get to know our applicants, by conducting group interviews. Why do we do that? Let’s use an example from a recent hiring we did for an administrative assistant.
