  • Following the success of Holmes I have sworn to share my experience wherever possible because it was the steepest learning curve. The greatest help I had at all points was from Interact, the best direction I’ve had is from my colleagues, the best ideas I get from you. So please, don’t keep your successes quiet – we should share, help and support each other because it can be lonely in intranet manager land. Interaction is our chance to see, learn and share. So please grab me at any point, put a coffee (or a gin) in my hand and we can talk intranets – that’s what this is all about.
