Got milk?

I really don't want to sound like one of those career tossers, but I reckon it's important to share some good news with my close friends and family...

Work has asked if I'll take on an extra client. The role is with the world's third largest dairy company, which is also NZ's biggest company and one huge bloody business to get my head around. I'll be overseeing the PR for the Middle Eastern and North African markets.

I'm stoked because it has fulfilled one of my career goals which was to work with an agriculturally-based company. My family's roots have instilled a facination with the land and how it fits in with people's lives. I would never have the right stuff to be a farmer, so I guess this is the next best thing...

So this means a couple of things:

  • A shitload more work
  • A shitload more opportunity
  • Trips to Dubai for work (and play with Cantwell and Fletch!)
  • My first serious management/leadership role
  • Possible trips to the Middle East to check out the area...Clare and I were talking about possibly heading to Egypt or Syria next year...Europe's not too far from there as well!!
Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be getting any free milk samples.

Please note, I haven't disclosed client specifics on this blog as, a) It's not a professional blog; and b) I don't want random's finding my blog on google when searching for my company. Sort of like my policy with people's full names.
