This is my video that I would have shown this holiday party if I was still with GSP, but I thought it important that I still share it.
Here’s my open letter to GSP.
It’s been almost a year to the day that my former agency, Goodby Silverstein + Partners, gave me the honor of being named their Employee of the Year for 2010.
It was a truly meaningful honor for me, because I got to work with my family everyday. And when you can say that, when you can believe that, you do everything you can to bring your very best to the table.
Reflecting on a year ago with another ex-GSPer who was there at last years holiday party, they reminded me of something I said that stuck with them. And although I’m no longer at GSP, I still believe it more now than ever because in the face of everything, it’s what makes that place special.
“This place [GSP] expects the best out of us, and in turn we expect the best out of each other”.
I was proud, no matter the circumstances, to bring my very best to the table every single day for the handful of years I was there. 2010 was one heck of a year for me at GSP and I’m proud of every second of it, the highs and the lows. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to be a part of one of the best agencies in the world, working alongside some of the finest people anywhere.
With all my heart, thank you to every single person, my family at GSP, for bestowing me with such a great honor last year and for a truly priceless gift. GSP will always be part of my family. You all were with us on this trip.
Warmest regards… happy holidays… I miss you all,
