I’m no Pollyanna. I’ve been in PR long enough to know fact from fiction. And here’s a solid truth. People still do nice things for each other. Not because they have to but because they choose to.
Like the client this morning who asked if she could refer me to a colleague. Or the client who took the time to send me a heartfelt Christmas greeting at what was perhaps the busiest time of year for her. Or the Communications Director who reached out to describe his experience working with small communications shops like ours and how it had helped move his business forward. Or the creative head of the bigger agency who reflected positively on our work over the years.
No one made these people do what they did. It was spontaneous, generous and supportive.
To the clients who have honoured us with their trust for the past 20+ years, a big thank you. We look forward to continuing to work with you. To the behind-the-scenes photographers, designers, videographers and editors who help us look good with our clients, thank you. We look forward to tapping into your amazing creativity. And to the family, friends and other associates who have rallied behind us, and hopefully will continue to do so.
It takes chutzpah to run a small business. But more than that, it takes great people. A big THANK YOU to all of you.
All the best for 2019!
