As from 21st July, I will be working as senior account manager in the digital team at Fleishman Hillard UK.
Of course it’s sad to say goodbye to my Porter Novelli colleagues – and judging from this comment I think the feeling’s mutual. However, it’s a great opportunity to work in an expanding team, with support from the already established US team and opportunities to find out what truly works when helping people communicate better using digital channels.
Strangely, I’m already fairly clued up on life at Fleishman Hillard. I went to their Digital Influence Index presentation, and have met Ed Lee, account director at Fleishman Hillard Canada’s sister company iStudio. I also met up with two of my future colleagues, Paul Borge and Joshua Davidson, at the Tuttle Social Media Club last week, and we had a great chat with James Whatley, Nancy Williams and Thibault Baradat-Bujoli.
All that remains is for me to give my swan song at Porter Novelli’s summer party next week (I’m the bass player for their kick-ass band Moscow Road so if there are any PN employees reading this, the band needs a replacement bassist pretty soon).
Any suggestions for how to go out with a bang? Flaming death perhaps? Mosh pit dive? Or maybe just a nice cup of tea and a biscuit? Answers please…
