Whether you’re taking your first steps onto a college campus, into the lobby of a new job, or into a new...

Over the weekend I revisited a 2011 film that captivated the world almost a decade ago. Nominated for Academy Awards, Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTA’s, War Horse went on to win 17 titles for itself.
