Well, what can I say … it has been an absolute blast! As my 4 years and 7 months as Business Development Manager on the AGRI project draws to a close I can honestly say I have loved every second. From working with my fantastic colleagues across both Harper and Aston universities to the wonderful companies I have had the pleasure of getting to know, I have grown, developed and learned so much both professionally and personally; and for that I would like to say a huge thank you!
There truly have been no lows, but certainly many highs along the way – seeing the impact and value we have been able to add to local companies who we have supported through the project has been wonderful to be part of. Seeing the growth of those businesses as they then continue their journey has also been hugely rewarding, as getting to know individual companies means you learn their passions, drivers and what success truly means to them.
Whilst new and exciting opportunities and experiences beckon, I do feel sad to be leaving the project before its completion, however, I will always have the fondest memories of working on the project and all the fantastic experiences I have been part of.
Thank you to all the amazing AGRI companies – I have loved getting to know you all and thank you to one of the best teams I have had the pleasure of working with.
And now for me, on to the next chapter…
