Well, this is a tricky blog post to write, but let's cut straight to it. After May 31st 2011, I will no longer be at EMC Consulting. I've decided that after 18 years of working, and 12 years at EMC Consulting (Conchango and OS Integration) that it's time for a bit of a rest!

What's so fantastic about The Fantastic Tavern then? Maybe it's the Tavern - the last event saw us at The Roebuck - a fine old London hostelry . Or maybe its the ale - certainly plenty was consumed by some of the guests! Thanks to EMC Consulting once again for sponsoring the event and to Michelle Flynn for organising.
