(Transcript) Steve Foreshew-Cain: Hello. It’s been another big week this week at Co-op Digital.
We welcomed three members of our Group Exec into the Digital team this week. Our Group CEO Steve, our Group Deputy CEO Pippa and Rod who’s leading the work on developing our new strategy which has digital at its heart.
We were very fortunate that Steve and Rod were very gracious with their time and gave us two hours at our all team event this week where they took questions on what they think the future of digital is here at the Co-op. They talked about a momentum that is building as we look into Renew.
We also welcomed Pippa to The Federation where she met with some of the teams that are working very hard on Co-op Digital products and services. She took a tour of our new co-working space which we’ve opened here at The Federation, taking time to make her mark on the on the table on that floor.
And of course it wouldn’t be a Friday video without mentioning some of our new joiners in the Co-op Digital team. So a big welcome to Gillian MacDonald who joins our user research community to Eliza Tyrrell and Chris Winkley who are joining our agile business analyst community and to Rachel Murray who is joining our content design community.
And the other big news of the week on a slightly sadder note is that we’re going to be saying goodbye to our friend Mike Bracken. Mike leaves an incredible legacy here at the Co-op, he has literally attracted hundreds of people to come and join the Co-op as it embarks on its digital transformation journey.
We’ve had a number of successes over the years already not the least of them is this building that I sit in today.
So, whilst it’s with sadness, a message to Mike. We’ve got this.
