“They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol
Without a doubt, I am going to look back on September 2009 as a month of lots of great change in my life. In fact, two big milestones happened last month that I wanted to share…one personal and one business.
First on the personal side of things, I had the amazing fortune to have Cindy Hickerson take my hand in marriage on September 12, 2009. As it is meant to be, the night was one of the best in my life as we shared it with our family and friends. And the whole experience had the perfect conclusion as the new Mrs Knox and I spent the week in sunny Key West, FL on our honeymoon.
Now as for the business side, there are changes on that end as well. When I returned from my honeymoon, I actually started a new role at P&G as I moved over to become Brand Manager, Innovation & Design for Procter & Gamble Productions (PGP). P&G Productions is a fascinating part of our company, charged with developing original content and entertainment to create powerful emotional relationships with our consumers. This is the group responsible for inventing Soap Operas in the 1950’s, running the People’s Choice Awards for the past 35 years and creating multi-platform content such Petside.com. In this new role, I will be applying my digital background to help P&G Productions to find the next generation of content, partnerships and entertainment to connect our brands with consumers.
So needless to say, September was a busy month filled with exciting changes. And both are changes that make me even more excited for the days, months and years to come.
