Two days to go and I start my handover with meetings with members if my team this morning and a call with our PR team this afternoon. There are a couple of issues still to take care of between today and tomorrow and then I’m done.
After work yesterday I visited a Pat Val store and had a tea. I’ve been visiting several stores lately and today I introduced myself to the team and had a chat which was interesting. Understandably they are a bit battered as they have had a tough time lately but I feel we have some good foundations to build upon.
One thing that I won’t be doing in this blog is passing judgement on the people and actions before my arrival. It’s too easy to look back and say what you would have done better/differently but I have always felt that this is unfair. I have never met the previous management of the business but I wish them luck in their new endeavours.
