Leaving City Hall for now

My 18 months of hard work for the Toronto City Manager’s Office is soon coming to a close.  I am looking for something new to do, starting this August or September.

Today my clients made a very kind speech about how I’m good at explaining their policy-shop needs to the information technology folks, and good at explaining IT stuff to them, and also about how I make them laugh.  They gave me a City pin, a City pen, and a City paperweight.  The paperweight is one of those clear acrylic faceted things, with a 3D image of City Hall somehow etched inside it, and that is pretty cool!
