I'm back

… and where have I been, you ask?

Two weeks ago, I was sitting in my office. The world was in order. Business was good. All was fine. When….

One of our consultants walked into my office, closed the door and said, “I have bad news. I’ve accepted a job with a competitor.”

These aren’t words that an employer ever wants to hear. But they are words that we all will hear sooner or later. And when we do, we have to be ready to put in the extra effort to meet the expectations of clients and honour commitments made to them.

That’s what I’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks. And, as I approach the Easter long weekend, I’m feeling a real sense of accomplishment that we met all of our commitments and kept our clients smiling and satisfied.

And by the way, if you are an experienced public relations consultant working in the Ottawa region, I know of a great public relations firm that is hiring. If you are interested in applying to join our team, email your résumé to me at joseph.thornley[at]gmail.com.
