This morning Emily and I, with the help of our friends from the CDS team, were able to establish a first call with the client. It was great meeting with them to establish a “first contact” to introduce ourselves.

Sadly the downside was that the process of making the connections was challenging (involving some ad-hoc conferencing in actions), and the sound quality poor. So poor in fact that for the next two weeks we are going to resort to Email communication to continue to learn more about the assignment.

Of course we are all looking forward to the in-depth work that will occur when we start the real work just over 2 weeks from now when we arrive. Anyway – the excitement continues to build. Just a couple more things to pack and some final logistics to sort.
