Happy New Year, one and all!
However, I have to ask, why is the first week back to work such a struggle?
After a fantastic two-week break I am finding it very hard to get my head in work mode, but give me another few days and I'm sure I will get there.
Having said that I have just come out of CRN's first planning meeting of the year and it is set to be a busy one.
Keep your eye on our events calendar because we have all the old favourites returning - CRN Fight Night, the Sales and Marketing Awards, the CRN Conference, Darts Night and of course the Channel Awards.
But there will also be a few new events including a second CRN Conference and a new exclusive evening event. More details to come soon!
And I'm sure there will be plenty more as well. And plenty of stuff that I can't even mention yet!
I am really hoping that this year will be less of a swan year for me personally (appearing calm on the surface, but paddling frantically below the waterline!) and that the year proves fruitful for our industry as the economy slowly (oh so slowly) starts to recover.
Here's to a very exciting year and I look forward to catching up with you all at various events during the next 12 months.
Of course, if you have any gossip or news in the meantime, please don't hesitate to drop me a line!
