The Monthly Barometer is, to our knowledge, the only advisory boutique in the world to offer its clients the opportunity to work while walking, trekking, climbing or ski-touring.
There is ample evidence in the scientific literature that walking is a cognitive enhancer. Indeed, the power of walking as a generative force of intellect, awareness, and creativity has been recognized by artists and scientists throughout the ages. Nietzsche even famously said: “All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking”.
