Looking toward my next opportunity, and other news
Whoever said that the only constant is change wasn’t kidding.
Work status. This past Monday morning, my work at ThinkWare, the payroll processing solutions company here in Cincinnati, ended. I was laid off, not because of performance, but because business conditions facing the company, the industry as a whole, and the economy. I know. I didn’t like the news either.
I especially enjoyed being immersed in the world of Microsoft Dynamics CRM from the customization and support side of things for more than six months, and I’ll really miss my coworkers. What a great team I got to work with! I’ll also miss the interaction with our great clients as well. We’ll see where the next stage of my career takes me. Hopefully sooner than later.
SummitUp. Later Monday afternoon, I found out that the organizers of SummitUp, the social media confab in Dayton, Ohio, were giving away a free pass to next Tuesday’s event. I entered and won! I’m floored and humbled — and genuinely excited that I get to (re)connect with people from the Cincinnati and Dayton area, and learn a lot from them as well. Thanks again!
Public Speaking. Later next Tuesday, I get to speak to the Insurance Women of Greater Cincinnati group in Fairfield, Ohio, about why social media is important. It’s a high-level discussion, and I’m really looking forward to it.
GospelFest. In the meantime, this Sunday at 4 PM, if you like Gospel music, and you’re in the Cincinnati area, I urge you to come out to GospelFest, a concert featuring a number of Gospel choirs in the Cincinnati area, hosted by the Cincinnati Church of Christ. The price of admission is a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the HOPE Worldwide Cincinnati food drive. So, come out to benefit a good cause, and be ready to enjoy the great music! (Oh, and I’ll be in the back, helping with the A/V.)
