Still Here..

I didn’t beat the security guard in, sadly.


It’s been a few weeks now. So I thought I should write a short missive, before I bugger off to soup/Match of the Day 2.

I have been a busy boy, with quite a few accounts on the go, an inability to remember names/learning how to filter out unnecessary stats (the last bit is taking quite a long time), and just generally worrying that I seem to spend quite a lot of time thinking about things, rather than on the phone, like my account team.

Revisiting the old master.

Still, all’s going well. I’m getting to grips with Outlook/meetings and suchlike. I’m also slightly in awe of the account team I sit with, and reminded why I was so rubbish at account handling.

Indeed, I’m learning how to work in a team again, what with all of the different personalities and behaviours. Working as a freelancer really doesn’t teach you that, as nice as it is. Of course, those same people can also give you work to do, which is sometimes a bit of a bugger, but ah well…it’s a learning process, and I’m trying to get to grips with working on multiple accounts with different priorities.

It’s all a bit mind bending, jumping from one strategic problem to the neck. But I’m learning. The next thing will be briefing folk. I’m sure it’ll all be good…

All of that said, I wish the Piccadilly line wasn’t such a bastard. Bloody tourists. Heh.
