My last post … at this blog.

All good things must come to an end and for me, my time at The Marketing Store is over. It’s time to move on and begin a new career before it’s too late. For those who know me well, they know that I have developed a great passion for Social Media over the past year and I have become quite a convert to Twitter and all those other Web 2.0 opportunities. I feel there is no time like the present to find my place in this exciting new age of digital marketing.
That having been said, this has been the hardest decision of my life, to give up something that has occupied my every waking moment for the past 21 years. Very few people are given the opportunity to experience the excitement of building a successful business, then selling it and being given the privilege of staying on and doing it again in foreign lands. I will always be grateful to the team at HAVI for their continued support throughout my career.
What I will miss most of course will be the wonderful people I have had the privilege of working with over the past two decades. From my wonderful partner Jonathan to my many colleagues around the world. I have worked with some of the best professionals in the industry and have learnt much, much more than I have ever had the chance to share. A large part of my decision to leave now has been the knowledge that the current team in Asia Pacific is the best we have ever had and is far better placed to take this business forward than I will ever be. Brent, Andrew and Justin have been great partners and great friends also. I wish them all the best for the future.
Finally, I would like to acknowledge the many great clients and suppliers that have been such a large part of my life here at The Marketing Store. I have been lucky to have worked with some truly inspirational people across all realms of business many of whom have become lifelong friends.

My last day here at 55 Mountain Street will be Friday 26th June but you will still be able to reach me at dvc47 at hotmail dot com or on my mobile +61 412 281 257. I would love to hear from you.
