Among the clients I am most thankful for are those who turn personal crisis into a mission, namely survivors of sexual assault. We are heartbroken by their stories, inspired by their courage, and touched by the trust they place in us to help them make an impact in preventing these crimes and encouraging others to overcome.
We also have a growing number of corporate clients who in addition to winning in business (we do love this part) make a difference in the world. Whether its launching initiatives around affordable housing, cleaning up oil spills, or helping disaster relief efforts, these companies exemplify what we are all about: IMPACT.
Last but not least, I am thankful for my Hill Impact family. Kate Brannen came over from the other firm earlier this year and deserves special recognition since she’s involved in every aspect of the business and all of our clients. I am also thankful that Moe Brown just joined our team; we got to know Moe in his previous role with Governor Nikki Haley, where he was an important part of South Carolina’s economic development team. There are others we will soon announce but I would not be here if not for Kate, Moe, Jen, Maddie, Marc and Daniella – I’m thankful for you guys.
Anyway, I need to get started cooking. Enjoy your Thanksgiving (unless you’re outside of the US, in which case: get back to work!).
