January 26 – I came to a decision today.
I’ve been struggling to be a non-exec director. It was a career ambition.
And it just has not worked. I’m not saying I have not added value: I think I have. I have really done my best.
But the truth is this business needs me more now, so I have sought consent to return to full time working, and got it, and very reluctantly have parted company with the company I so much wanted to do more with.
Sometimes needs must – and the pressure here is more than enough for me now. Personal ambitions are being laid aside.
But it will still be odd to apply for a P45!
