So that’s it then, my adventure at is over. Nine months after joining the Content Marketing team myself  I was told  my role had been scrapped.

I’m proud of my time at the company and sorry that circumstances didn’t allow me to continue. That’s life and I live to fight another day. It was an amazing time, and I learned a great deal about the job, startups and myself.

Accepting the award for Best Corporate Marketing & Communications Blog at the LWI Blog Ireland Awards was a fantastic moment.

Coming from a long newspaper background I was stepping outside my comfort zone, but the day you stop learning is the day you stagnate. You have to trust yourself and make the effort.

2016 has certainly been a rollercoaster year, and I’ve just celebrated my 63rd birthday, but I am about to step on a plane and take a planned holiday with my beloved wife Trish, my greatest supporter. Not having a job to come back to wasn’t planned, but I’m a great survivor.

I’m not sure what the future holds, but I’ll deal with that in a week’s time. One thing I will do is resume blogging, something I have neglected for too long. So, chin up, I’ll talk to you all soon.
