Usually at this time of the year I’d be thanking my clients for allowing me to work with them in 2016, in the form of something nice from Hotel Chocolat. It may not be the most imaginative approach but it’s something I’ve done since I launched my consultancy a few years back.
This year though I’m doing something a bit different.
I’m supporting the ‘Kipbag’ rough sleeper charity and buying some Kipbags to make a practical difference to the homeless this Christmas.
I think Kipbag is a great idea and the charity is about ‘Bringing warmth, comfort, dignity to Britain’s homeless.’
So, where I would have sent out a big box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates, I’m now buying Kipbags that will directly help the homeless.
Folks won’t get the endorphin rush from all that chocolate (!) but I hope they’ll feel good about being part of the initiative. (Actually, where I can get in to see people, chocolate is still being supplied).
Whether you are a client, an industry compadre, someone I talked to but didn’t work with ..
have a great Christmas and a brilliant, successful 2017!
