Hey everyone, 

 

Today is my final day working on the O2 community. I've been part of this community for nearly 8 years and have seen it go from strength to strength! I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here and I've had many wonderful discussions, disagreements and most of all laughs when speaking to this fantastic group of members.  

 

I'm genuinely going to miss you guys and coming in to work on such an interesting community. Best wishes to you all and I'm sure we'll cross paths again at some point in the future. 

 

A big thanks to all previous Community Managers, especially @Breanna who has done a fantastic job during her time here! 

 

As my final act as Head of Community it's a great pleasure to introduce you to your new community manager, @Dave-O2! He's going to be taking the reins with the support of @Chris_K@ColinO2 and the moderation team

 

Hey everyone 🙂

 

My name is Dave and I’m the new Community Manager, who will be taking over from the incredible Martin and Breanna from 1 September. My promise to you all is to ensure that this Community will remain the place to be for discussion, chat, fun and so much more!  🎉

 

To introduce myself a bit more, I have over 15 years of experience working for O2, my latest role was as part of the Social Media team with vast knowledge of several different topics including Volt, where I was involved in creating the Mega Guide for this very Community.

 

My biggest passion outside of the workplace is football  , I have a season ticket for my favourite team, so you’ll find me on the weekends at the Etihad Stadium 🏟. Not a bad 2022/23 season 🏆🏆🏆 In the evenings, I love to settle down and get stuck into a movie or a series, I’m currently watching Invasion on Apple TV (available as an O2 Extra 😏) , which I recommend if you’re a fan of the Sci-Fi genre.

 

My top 5 films of all time in no particular order are Goodfellas, Inception, Gladiator, Braveheart & The Dark Night. 🎥 What are yours ? I also try to stay fit and aim to run 5km, at least 4 times a week, I completed this in 27 minutes yesterday and try and squeeze this in on my lunch break 

 

Going forward I’m really excited to get to know everyone and I’m sure we can all help and learn from each other, build solid relationships, and harness that Community spirit. ❤️

 

My PMs are open, so feel free to drop me a message, about anything 💌

Goodbye @Breanna and @Martin-O2 

I`m sorry I was not around to say farewell on your final day on the Community.

I wish you both well for the future and thank you for you time on the Community.

Hello @Dave-O2 

Welcome to the madhouse err Community. 

It was good to read your comment....

  My promise to you all is to ensure that this Community will remain the place to be for discussion, chat, fun and so much more!  

Iam sure you will soon settle in and get to know us, and hopefully join in with the games and fun on Off Topic. As I too am a great football fan, supporting one of your main rivals - LIVERPOOL - I can see there may be a bit of friendly banter on the Off Topic Football thread during the coming season.

I wish you well in your new post.

Snazzy O2 footer in your signature, now I can see it - except it should probably now say "Community Manager" in the lines of rolling text somewhere, don't you think, @Dave-O2?
