Sometimes the Worm Turns

If you talk to enough people, some of them may just hear you.

I was fortunate to share a car trip with a colleague. We had to present to one of the functions about our respective areas of expertise: he on shopper trends, me on customer trends. The car drive took three hours each way and we talked about our backgrounds. During this chat, he mentioned that he could use a person like me in his team.

When we got back to the office, he got the ball rolling. Now, I’ve had discussions with his boss and it looks like I may be switching departments soon. I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, and it’s a long way to go before I sign a new contract, it’s evidence that doing something can make a difference. Sometimes, it’s also about a bit of luck.
