Goodbye Solutions Outsourced
After two years and a few months it was time to say goodbye to work life in South Western Sydney. I had just accepted a role in Sydney with Tom Waterhouse – an exciting Business Intelligence opportunity in the sports and wagering space.
I reflect at elements where I feel I joined yesterday, and others where it feels like I was there for a lifetime. Lifelong friends and deep connections were made and, ultimately; lessons learned about what you should and should not put up with within an organisation.
I was one of the early departures in what ended up being an exodus of immense talent. That should speak volumes about leadership concerns within the company.
Before I departed though; there was one last thing to do – enjoy a last lunch and goodbye cuddle with my dear friend, Lexie. An amazing person, sharer of a love of elephants and someone who understood well some things I was going through personally, we formed a bond and became lunch buddies most days. It was indeed a sad moment but still managed a few last laughs; particularly when cheekily snapping pics at lunch and getting busted!
My lil pocket rocket red VW Golf will miss the front row parking. I’ll be intrigued to see how much Oran Park grows in the next 5 years.
