Exciting New Announcement - Ecademy Global Ltd @lyndonx

Please welcome Lyndon Wood as the new Chairman of Ecademy.

Penny and I are delighted to announce the arrival of Lyndon Wood as the new owner and Chairman of Ecademy from 3.30pm GMT this afternoon.

Lyndon has a wealth of business experience and has built a UK Top 100 Insurance broker which he founded at the age of 19 back in august 1990.
Moorhouse Group,
Constructaquote.com,
Xbroker.com,
Moorlife,
L & S Investments are some of his business interests.

Please see Lyndon's profile for a lot more information and to do him justice.

You can also follow Lyndon on Twitter @lyndonx

Lyndon is and has committed to investing in Ecademy and building a new platform for release in early 2013.

We will be working together to put together a manifesto to share with you all so you can see the pace and the future of Ecademy which is really exciting for us all.

Please write to Lyndon and welcome him to this wonderful global community. Lyndon is open to any suggestions you wish to make.

I would also like to thank Anna Figiel and William Buist for all they have done behind the scenes to support this effort.

We would dearly and sincerely like to thank Daniel Priestley, Jeremy Harbour and Marcus Ubl for everything they have done for Ecademy since September 2011. They performed the role of a lifesaver and this will never be forgotten by Penny and me.

Thank you all in this place for the support, love and belief you have given Ecademy during its darkest hour. Brighter days are here and plenty more to come for us all to benefit from each other.

Penny will continue in her role as brand ambassador spreading the word on the importance of social digital.

From today I will take up the role of CEO and welcome your support in this endeavour.

Further press release will be shared with you over the next week.

Lyndon, I look Forward With Great Excitement, to the Future here on Ecademy. As I Mentioned to Thomas Yesterday, One of the Great Things I like about EC is the fact that it is British, Aimed at the SME community. Personally, having been associated with Social Media Since 2001, Sites like Ecademy Often Get Overlooked By Those that use Facebook, yet when We Dig Deeper, find that there is Much More Benefit derived from being here, than being on FB ( which is a good lead machine, when its set up correctly for your Business) But for the SME community Ecademy has a Great Role to Play. I am also a Great Advocate of All Things British, its Vital that The Small Guy SME's Stick together and I see Ecademy as playing a Vital Role in My marketing Strategy & am actively Promoting it out to those I work & am Associated with, Because I all to often hear this "I am running out of People to Talk to, Got Any Suggestions" Yes Support British, Support Ecademy! Social Media Plays a Vital Role in Our Business Lives, whether we like it or not. I'll Support you however I can.

If you are all reading my Ecademy Vision also posted some on this thread, you will see total focus, total direction, total dedication to making it all happen. The message and positioning is very clear with an emphasis of attracting new members to contribute and build for everyone. Ecademy will be the place to be for business to do business and for everyone to share knowledge and gather to bring the social aspects into play thus not wanting to lose the human capital that has been built so far but enhance its performance and subject matter to far greater things and to benefit everyone. The latest cutting edge technology is being applied you will be pleased. Lyndon

Announcing Ecademy Global 'Kick Butt' Team

Hi Everyone, I hope this message finds you all well and looking forward to the future Ecademy Global. I joined Ecademy in 2004 and at first I was very sceptical about how it all worked and what it would do for me. Within the first month of paying my membership I had connected with 100's of people, gained a number of clients and tripled my annual membership fee back! And that has continued over the years of being a member (PowerNetworker then BlackStar) but the most important thing was that I had made some amazing friends - many of whom I am still in contact with today (Shelley Fishel, Lesley Morrissey, Andrew Widgery, Thomas and Penny to just name a few). One thing I would just like to say - Thomas and Penny … you are both inspirations. I have told you both this many times but … you are! - Thank you. So, moving forward rapidly … I, being me, was a little cheeky the other evening when Thomas announced Lyndon's arrival. I dropped a quick note to Lyndon to say 'Hi' etc etc, a few messages were swapped and here I am. I also had a great call with Lyndon on Friday where he shared some of his vision for Ecademy Global with me and I have to say … hold on guys, this is going to be amazing! I have taken on the task, with Lyndon's backing of bringing together a team of Ecademists both long timers like me and newbies on the block. Why … ? Well, I want to develop a team of people who love to 'Kick Butt' like me … people who truly believe and see the full potential of Ecademy Global. People who will help drive it forward, making Ecademy Global … GLOBAL. Do you fit this description? Do you love to 'kick butt'? Do you have the drive to finish? Do you want to be part of this team? I have already contacted a number of people who I know and trust dearly (you know who you are) but if you would like to be part of this team then please drop me a line. Not just one line though … I have a challenge for you … In 150 words, describe yourself and why you think you should be part of this team. What motivates you? What drives you? Where do you want Ecademy Global to be? But also … Where do you want to be? Please don't call me just yet (my phone will be on strike otherwise), DM me for now. Here's to the future of Ecademy Global. Speak soon Helen x P.S. Don't forget to join Lyndon and Thomas in the Ecademy Vision Group to keep up to date on developments.

Dear Thomas and Penny If you have made a penny or two out of this, then that is good luck to you. You have done so much to foster the entrepreneurial spirit, that you should expect to gain from it. Many others have not done as well - I haven't for various reasons - many of them my own fault. But in a capitalist economy we welcome successes and yours is well deserved. Best wishes for the future.

Lyndon, You will find Ecademy to be a unique community! Thomas and Penny, with the help of many people such as William and other tem members have done a hell of a job on a shoestring! They had endless flag and mowning from members who thought they could deliver overnight miracles and had endless budgets. Despite all that they always fought for Ecademy and it's members. I sincerly hope that you can help Thomas Nd Penny realise their dreams with Ecademy and make good money from it as well!! I think you have chosen to put your money in one of the most exciting ventures I can immagine. This community, Thomas and Penny can archieve miracles withbyour backing! Let's set the new standard for networking and social media for now and the years to come together! Not copy Google+ but realy go to the next level!! Let's not copy others, but make them try to copy us!! Best of luck, lot's of succes, and lot's of joy, Fred Rutgers

Congratulations Lyndon for reaching the top 100 in the Ecademy score. That must mean that you are socially engaged across many platforms - good to know that we have someone on board who understands the "Going Social" side of business as well as........ TP - looks like you might be hounded for your ranking in 2nd place. Whether he can beat WB of course ...... who knows? Could be an interesting challenge! ;)

Congratulations to Lyndon Wood. As Thomas mentioned, Marcus, Jeremy and I came to Ecademy to solve some short term issues and to then find a long term partner who could take Ecademy to a new level through innovation and access to funding. I'm really so pleased to pass on the reigns of Ecademy into the hands of Lyndon, Thomas and Penny. I also want to say that William Buist and Anna Figiel are both incredible assets to the team and a real thrill to work with. I'm also really pleased I can go back to blogging as a member of the community rather than the MD. :)

Congratulations Thomas, Congratulations Lyndon! I like a stronger involvement of the insurance business Lyndon has a wealth of business experience and has built a UK Top 100 Insurance broker which he founded at the age of 19 back in august 1990. that was and still is the key success factor of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway! There is a fundamental difference between the insurance business and the venture capital industry! The insurance business has a very long term focus while the venture capital industry only offers a very short term investment commitment! In 2010 alone, European insurance premiums totaled €1,1 trillion and all premiums will be invested continuously in the European and global economies! All European insurance companies managed a total investment portfolio of €7.5 trillion in 2010! Ecademy, with Lyndon as chairman, thanks to his excellent personal ties to UK's and Europe's insurance industry, implemented a very sustainable long term strategy that has the potential to outperform the entire US social media networking industry! Hope you all a great and wealthy future in a changing and challenging world! Best, Lucas

Welcome Lyndon - and I love that you have started out by calling Ecademy (Global Ltd) a 'family' - that is the way that I know a lot of people on here see it and we value it for being that way. Many of us see the importance of a caring, supportive and savvy business network, where we all help each other in different ways, and with different roles - I am sure you will support and maintain that vision. Welcome to the family :)

A big THANK YOU to everyone for my welcome and the support you show Thomas and Penny. I know anything Social and anything deemed Online is a challenge and easily burn cash and burn quickly. We have a challenge ahead but a great and worthwhile one and one we can win together. With all of the business networks pounding the cities and all the social networks full of people having coffee in gardens Ecademy stands out with many USPs and more that will be added for us to grow and when I say us I mean the whole community. It will be the community that ultimately decide the future of Ecademy and what it brings to you that you will benefit from both personally and professionally. We all know that each of us has to earn and each of us like to communicate and feel part of something special a sudo family. Families look after each other, they bail each other out in tough times, they encourage each other to succeed, they love each other, they entertain each other, they stay positive for each other, they support each other, they should never fight each other or mock each other, they come together strongly for each other all of the time. This is what we do. May Ecademy stay and be with you all. You loyalty is greatly appreciated. Lyndon (does Chairman now make me a 41 year old Grandad to over 650k people:))

I would like to reiterate everyone else's welcome to Lyndon. I would also like to say what a great job Thomas and Penny have done for bringing the vision of ecademy into reality. This is something that most but not all people have expressed elsewhere over the years. Giving up the reins of something you have started, though we all see that Thomas and Penny will be continuing as CEOs is not easy, but increasingly common for start-ups; even fifteen year old ones. Recently I renewed my membership only out of support for Thomas and Penny. Sadly, living outside of the UK the benefits of membership are few. Over the last few years the energy that I recall so favourably that surrounded ecademy 10 years ago seems to have dissipated. Hopefully, the changes in ownership and Chairmanship will bring new energy or allow for the reinvigoration of all the good things that Thomas and Penny can take credit for engendering in online communities. The fact that a new life has been given to ecademy is is no small part due to Thomas and Penny who have really proved the naysayers wrong. Had it been otherwise they may have walked away from ecademy as many other entrepreneurs do when hitting bleak times. Again, thank you Thomas and Penny and welcome Lyndon.

Welcome Lyndon, There is much to be done and talk about plans etc is ..... yawn, yawn. So, please go speedily to Action and build the future on what you've done so far. You have my full support and encouragement (which some may say feels a little uncomfortable at times) and I note that you've already written your book, so that's saved me a Tenenr already ;) Thanks Stephen

Woohoo! A fellow countryman from my 'neck of the woods' Wales! Wales! Wales!! Hi and welcome Lyndon, Caerphilli was where my parents settled after my dad got demobbed, being an RAF pilot in WW2. So their friends were very much from there. I do hope you will support my Bringing people together incentive for creative business people?. Looking forward to meeting you. I am attending BS* Lunch August 3rd in London are you? C:)x

Thank you to everyone who has welcomed me with open arms it is much appreciated. Ecademy has loads of potential and has certainly got the strongest and most loyal community I have seen anywhere. As you saw in the announcement Thomas, Penny and I will be creating what will be the manifesto of "What Happens Next" over the next week or two and will share this with everyone. Plenty of new announcements will be made within Ecademy and the general business press. I can assure you that Ecademy will be developed with the community in mind and to benefit the community with the goal of assisting you and your business grow by sharing information and knowledge not just from Ecademy but between each other as you already do. We will be applying bleeding edge technology to facilitate all aspects of business and integrate into Ecademy for your use and benefit. Anyway, enough from me I am more than happy to be on board in what I see as a true Social Community of which I know you are proud to be apart of. I better go learn how to use it now ☺ Stay in touch and may Ecademy be with you…. L P.S I really look forward to meeting up with you at an Ecademy event

Sounds like good news and it's good to hear. Not being churlish, but feel much better about knowing from you, rather than finding out later.... As ever, happy to help in any way I can.
