So that’s the end of the Sir Humphrey chapter of my career, yesterday I left the OS, packing my belongings into a couple of plastic crates. It’s certainly been interesting!
To my many friends at the OS farewell, you all have my utmost respect, working with great commitment often within constraints beyond your control.
The OS will I hope change over the next few years to hopefully better serve the needs of its customers – the citizens of Great Britain, and provide them greater access to the best geospatial data in the world.
Change is not something to be feared, the history of the OS is full of episodic periods of intense change brought on by changing external circumstances, I’m sorry I was not able to orchestrate faster change during by five years there, but then again five years is but a moment in the history of an organisation which dates back to 1791.
Have a Great Christmas, and best Wishes for an exciting 2007.
