Last month, I set out to find my next gig. I wasn’t just looking for a job, I wanted to find the right place to put my attention. I wasn’t sure if I’d work at an ad agency, a boutique marketing shop, go client-side, or start my own thing. To help steer, I set a couple of goals. I wanted to
- work on big meaty problems
- do meaningful work
- grow my skills
- balance creative and strategic work
- focus on the team and culture
- earn my keep
I’m very happy to say that I found a place where I get to check every box on the list. Starting tomorrow, I’ll be joining Klick. My mandate is to bring a creative perspective to the strategy practice.
If you know me, you know that I’m slightly passionate about diving to the heart of a problem and getting to the story behind the data. At Klick, this will be a big part of how I get to spend my days, collaborating with an fantastically strong digital strategy team.
I’ve got a ton to learn on the healthcare side. My brother the Dr may be hearing from me a bit more frequently in the coming weeks.
The past month was a gift. I spoke with so many smart, kind, helpful people, and made a couple of new friends. I am a very lucky man.
I have a “what I learned while drinking coffee and talking about the state of the digital industry in Toronto for 30 days” post half written. I’ll finish it shortly. The takeaway: I’m keeping the coffee circuit up. Way too many amazing people to stop. Ping me. We’ll have coffee and talk.
