Dear AFOL community,
Wow, time really flies. I haven’t even fully revived from CNY and It’s me again. The random visitor to Kim’s Weekly. /chuckle
Next Monday we will be officially moving into the new Shanghai Hub which has been prepared for quite a long time. The past week was a crazy one of packing and moving. After being for 20 months in this office, I’m surprised a little to find out I’ve packed more than 10 K8 boxes full of good stuff (sets, polybags, t-shirts). I’m really looking forward to putting them into some good use in the future community activities.
Underneath from the huge improvement of physical working environment, the most beautiful thing of moving into this hub is that we will be living with a New Way of Working which we normally know as Hot Desking (but it's way more than that). There won’t be any fixed spot for anybody, even the top management. It is an activity based working style and gives us lots of autonomy and variety on choosing the right working stations for different tasks. It's all about effectiveness and collaboration. How you work and where do you work, totally up to yourself. What an exciting challenge!
At last, thanks to the great effort by Ana and all involved stakeholders, the Annual RLUG support packages has started to leave from different warehouses all the way to RLUGs. Your ambassadors shall be receiving them from time to time. We can’t wait to see another amazing year in this community.
See you all next month.
