Once again, December found me searching for a unique and fitting way to thank clients and collaborators for yet another great year at Spencer Grace. Deciding how to approach this year’s message, I set three priorities:
- Sincerely express my gratitude
- Keep the message brief, real, and personal
- Put smiles on my colleagues’ faces
A few days ago, the people of Animoto offered a creative challenge that clinched how I would create and deliver the message. When I read about the Animoto Company Holiday Video Contest—and watched a few examples of how other business people have used Animoto to share a year-end message—I realized a short video would allow me to meet all three objectives.
Because my work is all about getting words on the page, I opted not to say my lines. Instead, inspired by childhood experience with thank you notes, I hand-wrote this video message … in my best cursive.
I hope these two minutes of storytelling and gratitude bring you a smile.
Here’s to another rewarding year of doing great work with great people!
