🕘 First day back after visiting Somerset for a week off. Begin with daily stand up with Jordan (Head of Sales), and get updates on the previous week.

🕙 Tackle the 186 emails in my inbox.

🕚 Catch-up on cases, which have been kept up to date in my absence by my awesome colleagues, so not tooooo much for me to do.

🕛 Lunch. Not that exciting - I eat a sandwich and 2 apples for lunch every single day!

🕐 Customer success and project catch-up with Morgan (Program Manager) and confirm upcoming resourcing requirements.

🕒 End-of-month Customer Success reports for NRC and Red Cross work.

🕛 Lunch. 🍏🍎🥪

🕐 Implement automated case responses for when there has been no response. Add case labels to easily identify the type and priority of cases.

🕑 Focus on getting adult education client deployed for urgent requirement and update to Magento. Didn't get done yesterday as the account we were deploying to was Flex 2.0 and the plugins were built for Flex 1.0 and it took some time to roll the account back to V1).

🕒 Meet with self storage services client to discuss next phase of work and upgrading to Flex 2.0. Update the Statement of Works for the development.

Twilio is now strongly encouraging customers to move to version 2.0 of its digital contact centre solution as soon as possible. All future product updates and new features will only be released on Flex 2.0, and as such we’re increasingly helping customers make the move.
