This is the third last Doubting Thomas blog post that I will ever publish. My penultimate post next week, Stepping down, will take you on a trip down memory lane as I share with you the changes that I have witnessed over my 43-year banking career. And I will use my final post on 18 March, Parting words, to sign off as Gateway’s CEO and to convey my thanks to all my readers prior to my quasi-retirement (no more full-time work, just part-time corporate pursuits) on 31 March.

Well hello, again. It’s good to be back online, connected to the blogosphere. It’s been six weeks since I released my last blog post. I religiously publish a new post every Monday morning (by 10am Sydney time) but take an annual break from my blogging duties over the Christmas/New Year period.
