Taking on a new challenge

I know, I don’t blog often enough. This isn’t because I don’t have enough to say, as anyone who knows me will testify, it’s mostly because I have been very busy with work, moving house, and training for the Brighton Marathon (sponsor me!)

This blog post is about the first of those things that generally keep me from blogging, work. I love my job, I get to do amazing things like this:

And work with some awesome people. Nokia’s been through one hell of a transition in the last couple of years, it’s something I am proud I am part of and am sure the experience will serve me very well in the future.

Now a new challenge has presented itself within Nokia and from the 2nd of April I will move out of the global social media team and start as Head of Digital Marketing and Advocacy for Nokia Europe. I’m excited, very excited, its a big and exciting job, in a new team with new challenges and responsibilities.

I am proud to have done such great work with some great people as global Editor in Chief, hopefully this is the start of something else I can be proud of.

But first: I have a marathon to run, will blog more after that, promise.


Agora: Doing, not talking

I am very proud to have worked on this project (even if my role was not huge), along with a number of very talented colleagues, both at 1000heads and at Nokia:

It’s just a start, but making things visual really helps the internal community at Nokia (and there are a lot of us, so it is really a community) to understand the impact of the actions and decisions taken, so this was a big step and a good one.

Nokia are not the first to do this, but this isn’t about being first, and this isn’t about hiding all this away in a command centre or “war room” it’s an open space, it’s for sharing and for discussing, it’s social.
