It’s been on my mind for a while. Like the past 15 years.
One of the things about getting older and moving to a small place, is that you gradually become the peer group. And that’s when you can do one of two things. Cruise into your comfort zone. Or look at the warning signs on the dashboard of your life, and do something new.
A chance reconnection on Twitter has ended up with me registering on the PhD program at the School of Arts and New Media at Scarborough. The provisional research area is the ‘free’ model that underpins most social media applications. But like most people who have gone down this journey before, I know what I’m going in with – I guess I’ll find out more during the research process.
I’d like to continue doing change management work – as a strategist, it’s where I can really make a difference. And in Malta InsideOut, we’ve got a side project which takes a lot of time and commitment to sustain.
But I’m also going to make time to explore new connections and challenge what I think I know.
