24-Aug-12 30 years on

So the end of the last full week in August and a bank holiday weekend to look forward to! As I head for home, it’s been an exhausting week and I’m looking forward to kicking back a little over the next 3 days and enjoying the sunshine.

The week in work has been challenging with a number of different strands testing the ability of me and my team. Unfortunately due to the nature of the things we have been working on and the sensitivity of them, I cannot reveal too much on my blog!

I know that’s frustrating for those avid readers, but that’s the annoying aspect of my role sometimes! It’s fair to say though that my time has been spent juggling short term tactical wins and long term strategic plans with a range of individuals covering HR, technology and finance!

When I started in this arena nearly 30 years ago, as a mainframe operator working shifts, nobody could have set my expectations as to the diverse nature of my role 30 years on! Don’t get me wrong, I still like it as much as those 30 years ago, but times have changed and so has my role! But that’s it for another week. Maybe next week, I can provide a bit of an insight to this week.

Here’s to a relaxing (DIY) weekend.
