Q: What was the funniest recognition you’ve ever received?

A: One of our staff, Nicole, receiving candy undies after doing all the coordination for a client’s 40th birthday — she had to arrange naked sushi eating.

Also the funniest for our General Manager was after she won the managers award. She arrived back at the office and her desk was covered with balloons and streamers from the ceiling. 


Q: What was the happiest moment at work?

A: I still remember when we were about to invoice our first million dollars, which at the time was amazing.

On a personal level for me was winning the manager's award for the Travel Weekly back in 2010. Also when I celebrated 10 years at Spencer Group of Companies and received my one-carat diamond ring.


Q: What kind of fun activities does your company participate in?

A: The Our Staff Conference is always fun, particularly including a charity event on the weekend. Whether it's making bikes for under-privileged children, cooking for the homeless, everyone at our company loves to feel like they are giving back in some way.
