It’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged here so apologies if you have been checking this site to see if anything has changed recently.
Since yesterday I’ve been updating the WordPress CMS that powers the site and realised I needed to post here after my recent hiatus.
Since early July I have been full on in a new role at the Dunedin City Council working across a number of departments as a Marketing Coordinator.
I can now tell you more than you may like to know about many things spanning animal control to water and waste services and all things in between
Throughout all of this I have also been juggling some surgery my youngest daughter needed to have up in Christchurch.
It’s all good, she’s fine and on the mend, but the whole event took a lot of my focus and energy.
The family all shifted north for the best part of a week while she underwent the surgery and then recovered enough to travel back with us to Dunedin.
During all of this time I was also doing my best to write a longer (but yet as concise as I could) paper for the LIANZA Conference 2012 that kicks off today in Palmerston North.
I’ve also been prepping a talk I’ll deliver on Tuesday that should run for 20-25 mins and allow some time for questions and answers thereafter.
To be honest I could talk for an hour about my Paul Reynolds ‘No Numpties’ scholarship trip earlier this year but it’s probably best I’m pinned to a shorter time frame.
Nothing like brevity to focus the mind and distil ones thoughts.
I’m looking forward to seeing my former GLAM colleagues on Tuesday.
If you are attending this years conference I wish you all the best and hope that you get a lot out of the experiences to come.
