Well, last friday (29th) was my last day at Vodafone Group Services. It feels a bit weird not working there anymore, although I don’t even know if it’s really hit me. After 8+ years in the same group of companies it’s just a bit strange to be out.
I’ve got a new role at a consultancy based in London, starting with some intensive training on the 10th March. Should be very interesting to start working on the other side of the consultant/customer relationship. I’m really looking forward to it - it’ll be great to be able to interact with a wider range of companies, industries and perform a much more cross-functional role. It should be great! And finally being able to feel like I’m delivering value to people and organisations again - that will be the most rewarding part of the move (of course, I have been delivering value for the past 8 years, it’s just in the last 2 it’s been in a very different way - all advice and recommendations, rather than something tangible).
The biggest thing that I think I’m going to struggle with though is having to pay for phone calls! Spending a long time with free wireless voice and data services builds up some bad habits (from my bank balances point of view!)
