From then till I left that company over 10 years later to start my own business, this industry has delivered so many memorable moments. Some of my most memorable industry moments include product launches too numerous to mention; overseas trade shows; growing and merging brands; opening up to new markets and joint venture deals; and going public and IPOs.
Before the conference I asked the attendees in a pre-poll vote to share their favourite industry moments. They included:
- Lots of overseas opportunities: new markets, experiences and events.
- People: the mentors, the challenging customers and collaborative suppliers.
- Hitting personal goals: that satisfaction when you’ve stretched yourself, and achieved your target.
- Learning something new and strength over adversity.
So keep on taking the time to see and appreciate your great moments and relive and share your great memories. It’s all about keeping it real.
