Two of the announcements may have got lost within the more high-profile ones, but they are no less important: Firstly that our home over the next year is to be 3 Mills Studios.
Set in the heart of London's East End, it's an historic and beautiful location that for some years now has been film and TV studios. It feels right to be working in the heart of the part of London we are regenerating, and we will all be able to see the Olympic Stadium from our office windows.
Secondly, we announced that we have created a standalone production company to produce the four Ceremonies, with the help of our partners FiveCurrents, Unspun and Arcadis. Between them they've got vast experience of producing very large shows and will also make sure we keep to time and budget.
Finally, there's our creative team. Catherine Ugwu, Hamish Hamilton, Mark Fisher and Stephen Daldry – all world-class leaders in their fields and, while I feel lucky to have them on the team, I can tell you it wasn't a hard sell. All of them wanted to be part of this unique experience and knew that without the best we couldn't be the best.
Then there is Danny Boyle, our Creative Director of the Olympic Opening Ceremony. Danny is here because he sees it as his civic duty, because he just couldn't imagine not doing it and has an irrepressible desire to make this country proud.
There will be more announcements to come, including the appointment of artistic directors for the other Ceremonies and then literally hundreds of production staff, crew and artists.
If the first people through the door are anything to go by, lunchtime in the café at 3 Mills Studios is going to look like an Oscars party – and so it should! It seems people are already, quite rightly, positive about the appointments - what do you think?
