 Letter From the Professor - January 10, 2008

Professor gets to pinch the nurses again

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water I had complications which put me back in the hospital for another glorious 9 day stay. I got to dine on fine hospital foods, have my blood drawn by techs that NEVER hit the vein on the first try and get woken up in the middle of the night to take unknown meds for unknown reasons. Thank heavens my good friends from CAP made the ordeal bearable with emails, phone calls, flowers and visits. Once again you have my deepest thanks for all the support.

Countdown to London

With two weeks to go most people have already locked in airfare, hotels and registered for CAP Euro London and the first ever CAP Awards. Now is the perfect time to set up meetings with your favorite affiliate or affiliate managers. With over 1000 people at the show things can get quite hectic and it’s very easy to wake up on the last day with a long list of people you wanted to meet with but missed. I recommend you set up your calendar now so you get the maximum benefit of event. It’s also a great time to make dinner or show reservations as those tend to fill up fast and may not be available if you wait. I suggest a dinner at Mr. Chan’s or one of the restaurants operated by celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsey or Jamie Oliver. It’s an experience you won’t forget. A little pre planning now will make a huge difference in London so get busy!

 Manager's Corner

ShaneKate, Bet365

I have been lucky enough to work in the gambling industry my whole working life, having started at Totesport to pay for my hectic social life at university (studying Politics and Sociology for those who are interested in those things). I then landed at Littlewoods Bet Direct when I was forced out into the real world full time. Originally from Liverpool, England, I upped and moved to Spain to join the gambling “haven” of Gibraltar in 2004. After 3 years at 32Red, where I became Affiliate Manager, I joined bet365 as Gaming Affiliate Manager, a fantastic company with ambition, drive and great exciting and innovative products. Working in this industry, I am fortunate to constantly meet interesting, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly people – and given my ability to both talk and drink a lot (not usually simultaneously though), I can’t think of a better place to be!
