Just a short note to say that some of your blogs and videos have been super helpful for me, especially those relating to the Digital Transformation Lead role. A while back, I applied for my current role as

a Digital Champion, which has a lot of parallels with the other role, and your content was really helpful when I was prepping for my interview.
