Dear Channelweb readers
I must apologise for my absence in the first working week back of the year - unfortunately my 2011 ended with some unpleasant personal challenges and these continued into 2012.
But I'm pleased to say things are finally on the up now and I'll be back atmy desk next week and raring to go.
It is looking like an extremely busy year ahead for CRN - we have all the old favourites such as CRN Fight Night and the channel Awards to come, but also many new projects and exciting events in the pipeline.
I'm looking forward to being back and getting back in touch with all my old contacts and friends in the industry..
I hope you have all had a bearable first week back at work and I hope 2012 is a positive year for you all.
See you all very soon.
