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.
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…
