Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week so far.
I’d like to update you all on a couple of Community Team changes coming in the new year!
I'm saying goodbye...
After working on the O2 Community for several years now, I'm both sad and happy to say it’s time for me to move on to other things in January as a new opportunity has come up. I’m super excited as this is a new challenge in my career, but I’m also sad that I’m leaving the O2 Community and the team behind after such a long time.
It’s been an amazing time working in this team, with O2 and especially with you guys here on the community! We’ve come a long way, done so many things together over the years, and I’m sad to miss all the exciting things coming next year! I will miss chatting with all of you every day and hearing how you’re all doing with everything - I'd love to keep in touch so would like to still pop by sometimes to say hello.
... but you'll be in good hands
I’m very proud to say that @Martin-O2 is moving on from his Community Manager position and taking over my role as Head of Community. This is super well deserved and I’m confident that Martin will do great leading the team. To replace the gap, we’ll be getting a new Community Manager joining Martin and @LukasB in the team and will share more updates on that in the next few weeks.
As I’m handing over to Martin, I’ll still be here supporting the team in the background for a little while during January, but will be less present in the community soon I’m afraid as I start preparing for my new role. At some point you’ll notice my forum role changing to “Former Staff”.
Right now though, I'm still here for a couple of weeks finishing some tasks so not yet fully disappearing. As I mentioned above I will miss chatting with you guys so hoping we can keep in touch via PM sometimes!
I shall miss you @Marjo ... thank you for all your help to me in pm's ... please let us know how you are doing including your fabulous 2 cats Arthur and Drake ... we have shared some laughs and you have sent me many hugs and your sound thoughts
Congratulations Marjo on your new job news ... it all seems to be falling into place for you for a forthcoming good start to 2021
@Martin-O2 Congratulations on becoming 'Head Honcho'
With @LukasB the three of you have been a seamless team, working well together for the benefit of us all
Hey guys thanks for all the lovely comments I definitely feel like I've made a lot of friends on here over the years so will keep my PMs open so we can keep in touch!
Might pop by some quizzes occasionally too @Mi-Amigo! Thanks the cats are definitely now 100% settled in. Let's see what happens though when I get the Christmas tree up (they've never seen one before)...
@Cleoriff , @gmarkj yeah definitely I really do feel that the off topic and general discussion side of things does balance out the 'help stuff' on a community - brings people together and it's great to have a fun place to relax, have a laugh, and post about your own interests and learn about those of others, discuss what's happening in the world etc. Also a great easy-threshold, lighthearted way for new joiners to participate as well and say hello and I'm hoping that will happen more next year.
@jonsie I can say for sure that our new joiner is super cool so no need to worry! More news on that soon.
@Poppysmum Thanks, I'm sending some love back to you and Rosie!
@Anonymous I'll keep updating you with what mischief Arthur and Drake get up to for sure and would love to hear about your Marty too!
@MI5 Thanks Same to you and keep in touch!
@Paul-H Cheers, appreciate it! Hope you stick around here on the community and maybe see you next year when I get some time to pop back in.
@Luke30 I'm moving on from working with O2 I'm afraid, although I will remain as an O2 pay monthly customer as well as a member of this community.
