Closing notes
So, anybody who may have noticed a little announcement from me earlier this week will know that I have joined Heyday by Hootsuite as their UK lead. It’s pretty exciting as a move - I get to talk EVEN more about Conversational AI and introduce UK retailers to some pretty useful tech. Heyday is on an aggressive hiring journey, so if you are interested in checking out roles, mainly based in our Montreal, Canada HQ, then take a look here.
I’ll still be keeping up with Bot Jobs and with this newsletter, so nothing will change. This newsletter will remain a brain dump of the articles, content, events etc. that I find interesting every week.
I’m hoping that this newsletter keeps building and improving with every issue. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and ideas of what you want to see by DM on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok (not that I have worked that one out yet!).
Have a great week ahead!
