Exit stage right

Aug 31st will officially be my last day of employment with SpinVox.

As you may be aware, things have been quite tense and anxious of late (at least when I’ve been in the country anyway), and it’s become very clear to me that my predicted shelf-life for this chapter of my career was accurate. It’s time to move on.

The past two years have been, in the main, awesome. I’ve learnt a hell of a lot and have had the good fortune of working with some amazing people on some fantastic projects.

In fairness to SpinVox, I had every intention of leaving around about now so this timetable of events has always been on the cards. Trust me when I say: I will take much of what I’ve learnt in my time in Marlow long into my professional life.

What next? Well, I’m talking to some people about prospective new projects, but right now, I’m just looking forward to being back in London and taking a much needed break.

Although, on that note, if you think there’s a project we should be working together on either now, or in the future, then by all means get in touch.

Thanks for reading.

  2. Way to go, James. You’ve always been spot on and helpful and I loved Spinvox (even if everyone who phoned me seemed to hate it!) Best of luck for the next stage.


  3. Welcome to the Club matey. Employment is much overrated! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hoping you’ll be dedicating ur time more to TRMP – we need more “dude” on video. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  4. Sir, you are a marvel. I know that your next big thing, whatever it may be, will be blessed by your inclusion in it. Looking forward to catching up.



  5. James,

    You’ve done a great job and stood front-and-centre in the middle of the recent furore. The ups *and downs* will be a great benefit for your future employer / clients.

    Best of luck… you won’t need it.



  6. Good luck James – looks like you’ve had to put up with a whole load of crap (and much fun too…) in the last couple of months, wish you well in whatever awesomeness you inevitably end up in next…


  7. Dude! Following your antics is always an adventure. I can not wait to see where you go next. Loving your Lucozade work by the way, boy did they ever pick the right man for the job!

    I’ve always thought that you’d do well in TV, any doors opening for you there? Any doors you can kick open? ^_-

    As Ben said, you won’t be needing luck.


  8. James,

    Congratulations on taking the jump out into the somewhat unknown! I am excited to see what you do next.

    As with the other commenter above, I vote for more TRMP videos!

    smiles, jen ;o)


  9. I remember when you first hinted at this. I’m interested to see what you do next. I just turned a page in my career, as well.

    And BTW, I still hate you for having such an awesome summer. I also hate the British postal service for never getting that package to you; there was a note in there I think you needed to read.

    In any case, enough about me. Back to you: good luck, old man…


  10. Congrats on the move, and let us know where you end up! Curious to see what your next endeavour will be. Drop me a line if you’re ever out in my neck of the woods (Vancouver).



  11. Good luck, I wish you much success for the future! I’m sure this industry will continue to benefit from the Whatleydude for a long time to come!


  12. Out of interest did you have any trouble posting this to draft from your blackberry ? no ? oh well !

    In the meanwhile I would first say Best Of Luck to you good sir and as many have pointed out dont believe the full time employment hype. The only person looking out for your next move is you. Youve gained some valuable credit and experience in being both the pinata and pressman for Spinvox and I for one am going to miss the presence of our Orange Cubed headed overlords.

    Enjoy the down time and I look forward to you being truly really mobile in the future.

    All the best.



  13. Best of luck for the future! Hopefully this will give you a little time for that long awaited break! Now then have you told those TechCrunch boys they can release that post announcing this! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Keep in touch!

    ps ping pong is also one of my face lunch places!


  14. Would say sorry to see you go, but am sure that we’ll have plenty of opportunites to work together again in future and handily there is a Ping Pong just around the corner from PN towers.

    Good luck with whatever comes next, you’ll be stellar at it.



  15. Best of luck to you, sir. You did a sterling job in very… um… interesting circumstances! Looking forward to seeing what you get up to next…….


  16. ShoZu should hire you to whip their online marketing stuff into shape. they’d be fools not to ๐Ÿ™‚ ! Good luck James, looking forward to the next chapter!


  17. You dont have to wear that dress tonight……..

    Whaaaaaaaatley……. You dont have to sell your body to the night…..

    Sit down in the boat, mate….


  18. James,

    Keep me posted on what you’re doing next. You’re definitely one of thise guys who will easily find a home!
