I’m leaving the BBC at the end of this week, having decided to go some weeks ago. It’s my decision to go, for reasons I won’t be going in to here.
I don’t yet know what I’ll do next, but hopefully it will involve some combination of technology, creativity and business. I’m going to take some time to think about things and then get going again in a new guise.
It’s probably worth saying this decision has nothing to do with the BBC Strategic Review. I’ve got my thoughts on that, but this isn’t the time and it probably isn’t the place.
I’ve worked with some fiercely bright and committed people in my short time with Auntie. There’s some brilliant work going on there, like this and this and this, all of which I’ve had some involvement in but claim no credit for. Let’s hope that work survives whatever comes next.
