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. 🙂
Hi Dan, thanks for your very helpful work at Open Text and welcome to the new world of freelancing work!
I hope to see you soon again somewhere else.
Thanks Hilmar. We may very well see each other on the circuit!
Hi Dan, that’s a good step in a good moment. Of course it’s a loss for OpenText. But I see this relaxed: For years I still see the same people. Just every now and then the company names on their name badges change. If we need you, we know where to find you and the other way around. Have a good start!
Thanks Boris. I’d even go as far to say that I’m looking forward to meeting many again.
