What a year it’s been!

It’s that time of year again – the internet is full of blogs celebrating the year that will soon be behind us, and for once I thought I’d follow the pack and do the same by rounding up some of my highlights of 2012 – of which there have been many.

Being invited to America to talk about how we’re leading the way in improving digital skills in the UK was a real highlight, and as well as sharing my expertise, I learnt a lot and was inspired by some of the fantastic people I met along the way. I was also humbled when I was inducted into the BIMA Digital Hall of Fame, alongside Stephen Fry, Sir Tim Berners Lee and Martha Lane Fox. Thank you again to all who voted for me – it really was a huge achievement, one I’ve already made some great contacts through, and one I will continue to talk about for some time.

Online Centres Foundation as an organisation has also achieved significant things over the past twelve months. We appointed our fantastic board, held our first national conference and ran some brilliant campaigns – including Get online week. We hit a huge milestone as well – having supported one million people to use computers and the internet since April 2010.

And we’ve worked with so many fantastic people this year, so thanks to all of the partners who have had a huge role to play, to our fantastic network of local centres and everyone else who has given us so much support in 2012 – it wouldn’t have been possible without you!

And while 2012 has been a fantastic year, I’m pretty confident that there is far more to come and I can’t wait for everything 2013 has to offer – watch this space for more news.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
