I called just before Christmas to catch up with you but you were on leave. I had a nice chat with Guy and just asked him to thank you once again for the work you put into getting me my opportunity at ******. Things are going really well with a great variety of experience and responsibility coming my way each week. I now have two direct reports which was something I was very keen to achieve albeit I did not expect this in such a short space of time. As ever you listened carefully to my career interests and aspirations and the result speaks for itself!
