Hidden Talents

By | August 17, 2007

You think you know someone and then they go and surprise you when you least expect it. That happened to me last week. One of the female members of staff at one of my clients revealed a talent that I never suspected she had.

You can stop that train of thought right there. Bad, bad people.

Turns out she’s an aspiring illustrator and a good one at that. I’ve worked with her for a year and she never even alluded to it. The only reason I found out is that she brought in a few pieces of her work to show the rest of the office last Friday. It was her last day in the job, now having moved on to pastures new.

Do any of you have any hidden talents, something that you don’t tend to reveal to friends, colleagues or even family?
