Hi peeps! Well, it’s been just on a month since my last post and although it’s not excusable, I do have a good reason for it. So here goes:

A few weeks back, on a late Tuesday afternoon, I was trawling through some cycling news sites looking for interesting bits of information. While on the BikeBiz.com site, the Job section/tab caught my attention and I thought, ‘what the hell’ and decided to see what’s being advertised.

One item that caught my eye was a job posting for a ‘Marketing and PR manager’ role at The Tour of Britain. So without hesitation, I got my CV in order, wrote a cover note and emailed it off to the organisation. So not expecting to hear back from anyone, I was extremely surprised when I got an email back within an hour of me sending mine, asking me to come in for an interview.

So to cut a long story short, after two interviews and an excited yet stressful time between each waiting for the answer I was looking for, I finally received the call with the offer to join the organisation.

Man, was I over the moon! How often does one get the opportunity to be paid to talk about the sport they love.

So, after handing in my resignation at IBM, waiting a few weeks for HR to sort themselves out, I officially joined The Tour of Britain organisation this past Thursday.

So what exactly will I be doing? Well, in short, I’m tasked with helping to promote, 1) The Tour of Britain; 2) The Tour Series; and 3) Unite ByCycling, a partnership between The Tour of Britain and the Prostate Cancer Charity.

So keep your eyes and ears open for more on these in the weeks and months to come.
