OBEs, Grammy Nominations and Book Deals – Our JHPR 2017 highlights

With another year almost behind us, the temptation is to start plotting and mentally stepping into 2018 and all that we hope to achieve. But before we get lost in future planning, we are casting our minds over our 2017 highlights and encourage you to do the same before pausing.. and simply being in the moment. 

Happy Holidays all, thank you all for your support X
