    Hi Lee, nice to hear you are crossing the ditch!

    I won’t be attending this conference (we are purely in the employee communications space) but it’s been on my list to make contact next time our paths cross.

    If you think it would be relevant / interesting, do you fancy a chat over coffee / something stronger whilst you are in Auckland?

    Hi Lee,

    I’ve just realised I missed you when you visited New Zealand – life just gets crazy doesn’t it?!

    I’ll be at IABC in the exhibitors hall so if you want to swing by and say hello it woulld be great to see you.

    Also, our new website has just gone live. Are you interested in a link exchange? (I’ll probably link to this blog as a useful resource anyway if that’s OK?)

    Hope to see you a San Fran!
