I may be writing this while the sweet taste of victory (or is that just champagne?) is still fresh in my mouth but don’t worry, I’m not about to let this blog post descend into a schmaltzy Gwyneth Paltrow-style acceptance speech!
It just strikes me that the buzz in the Sprint office this morning isn’t simply a result of the new award we have sitting proudly on our desks.
Much more than that, there’s the feeling that only comes when a group of people have worked so hard for something, pulled together as a team, shared the ups and the downs, and then come together to celebrate what they’ve achieved.
We’re absolutely thrilled to have won ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ but the other finalists in that category have all achieved so much, and I hope they’re also feeling that buzz of having shared something special and become a closer, stronger team.
In the end, that’s the best thing to come out of something like this and its legacy will live on long after the thrill of winning the award has worn off.
I think we all get so immersed in what we're doing that we don't take enough time to celebrate what we've achieved together. So if it's been too long since you got everyone together and engaged in a bit of team bonding and backslapping, then it's time to put this right - you'll feel the benefit afterwards.
Sorry, this is straying dangerously close to Gwyneth Paltrow territory now isn’t it? I think I’ll stop writing now before the tears start flowing!
