I've been keeping this mostly under wraps for a little while now, but as it is now 95% a done deal, I think It's time to share this bit of news with everyone. Once again my wanderlust as gotten the better of me, and I am on the move once more. I have just accepted a transfer, and will be moving to our UK office in the New Year. Yep, I'm moving to London!
The Ventyx office in the UK is actually in a town called Woking, in Surrey, just to the Southwest of London. I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet, but it's likely that I'll chose to live in London, and commute on the train to Woking each day. But, that, as with many of the details, is still to be sorted out. I have made a two year commitment, so I know that I will be in the UK for that long at least. So Alex, it looks like you'll have some company soon, on the other side of the Atlantic...
My start date is February 1st - I've got a bunch of things going on here in the New Year, plus it will take some time to get visas, work permits and the like sorted out. I am probably going to go to the UK for a few weeks at the end of November, to try and start sorting out some of the details.
All in all, it's a very exciting time. I'm really looking forward to the experience of living overseas, and the opportunities for travel that this will afford. It should be an amazing experience, and should provide me with lots of opportunity to update this little blog.
