Hi guys,

It is with a very heavy heart that I must announce that I’ll soon be leaving my role as the head of this brilliant community.

 

I’ve been here for 5 years (or half a decade, as it sounds more impressive) and some of you will remember those very early days as I do (hopefully fondly :smileywink:).

We’ve done so much together; Amazing advice between and to other customers, Try The Tech, Virtual Interviews, BETA testing products, creating amazing how-to guides (Some used by our customer service teams) and some of the best reviews this company has even seen. Your insights and comments have helped shape O2 in so many ways and there’s never been a dull day with you lovely lot either, so thank you :).

Martin and Marjo will be staying on and will continue putting 100% into their work as they always have and I’ll still be online for a few months to ensure that my replacement is fully ready to take everything over and to shepherd the community into even more great things. More info on that to come very shortly.

 

I’ll still be doing the same kind of job but in a new place. I’ve loved my time here, but its time for something new after 5 years.

PM me any time in the next few months as I’ll still be around to make sure everything runs smoothly. I’m sure I’ll pop in as a guest from time to time too.

 

So, until we speak again; Aufedersein guys :). Not going anywhere right now, but I wanted to make a post to say goodbye!

Fancy writing a great device review or O2 forum guide? Send me a message!

Get involved:
• New to the community? This is how you get help.
• Want to know who we are? Come and say hi to us.
• Want to have a chat? Drop me a direct message.

<soto voce> He's gone!! Woohoo, let's throw a party!!! LOL </soto voce> 😛

 

 

 

Nah, seriously, gutted to see you going @Toby. Having been actively involved with lots of online communities, even managing a large one myself for a period, you're by far one of the best community heads I've come across, and will be a sad loss to O2 and the customers on here. 😞

 

Wishing you all the best for the future mate, I'm sure you'll carry on doing great things wherever you are. slight_smile

 

Now, did somebody mention a party? CheersSmiley LOL

I work for O2, however any advice or opinion given in this community should be considered my own and not necessarily representative of Telefónica UK Limited.

You are our 3rd scalp 😛
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
