Just like that it’s December! | Editor’s Viewpoint

In a blink of an eye 2023 is nearly over and we are heading towards another new year. We’ve had highs and we’ve had lows but generally speaking the industry has had a pretty decent year.

So, what has 2023 given us? Here are some of the highlights from the PEW editorial office……. don’t shoot the messenger!

Top of the list for me was the Rugby World Cup although obviously it would have been better if England had won! I should probably also mention the FIFA Women’s World Cup just to keep things equal in the sporting stakes.

The next highlight was slightly controversial in that it was an equal split between Barbie and Oppenheimer…. Not wanting to engage in the ongoing office debate I’m going to give them both equal billing – I will leave you to decide if one is more worthy than the other!

For the space enthusiasts amongst you I am going to include the fact that India became the fourth nation to successfully land a spacecraft on the Moon with the touchdown of its Chandrayaan-3 Moon Lander on the unexplored south pole.

Then we move to music – love him or hate him Harry Styles apparently lit up the music scene with his album ‘Harry’s House’ which earned him a Grammy Award for Album of the Year – I did say don’t shoot the messenger!

We can’t do a rundown of the highlights of 2023 without mentioning The Coronation of The King and the Queen Consort in May – the first coronation in the UK for almost 70 years which earned us all an extra Bank Holiday.

We also absolutely have to mention the hosting of Eurovision in Liverpool (didn’t Liverpool do us proud!) and Elton John – I mean what an absolute legend! If you missed his headline act at Glastonbury then you definitely need to add it to your ‘one to watch’ list.

I feel that I should end this with something that is actually related to the electrical industry, so I am going to go with the fact that the market for smart technology continues to grow. I appreciate this news isn’t up there with landing on the moon, but it is something which is very positive for our industry – long may it continue.

See you in 2024.
