As my time with OpenText comes to an end tomorrow, I leave the company with gratitude for the 7 years I’ve been with RedDot and then OpenText and I leave with a level of excitement for the future that I haven’t felt in a long time. So whilst it is sad to be leaving, all things indicate that I’m ready for the next challenge.
I’ve written a couple of goodbye emails to my colleagues today and within those I emphasised how much I enjoyed my time establishing and building the SolutionExchange community platform. This certainly feels – in hindsight – one of my greater achievements and armed me with greater knowledge around agile/lean concepts, community management, and the wise utilisation of social channels.
Therefore, to conclude my goodbyes before I get buzzed about the future, I would like to (once again) thank those Customers, Partners, and colleagues who participated in the SolutionExchange community and made it what it was but also more selfishly, for giving me such an enjoyable and constructive phase of my career.
As I shall now be entering the scary world of freelancing, I’m sure I shall meet or engage on-line with many of you still and I look forward to it, which is why this is only a short goodbye.
Those of you who want to get in touch will be able to find me in the usual on-line hangouts – LinkedIn & Twitter being my preferred choice. Failing that, just Google me and you’ll find me. :-)
