and Smell the Christmas Tree!" (2013)
the upcoming year end season will mean different things to all of
us, it will no doubt be a time of reflection and thanks after a
somewhat challenging year.
all of us be thankful for the challenges 2013 has presented as they
will make us stronger, wiser and more determined. With the negativity
and indifference that has surrounded us it is important to step
back, "smell the Christmas Tree" and realise how lucky
we all are.
as you celebrate Christmas, Summer, the year end or that break you
so badly deserve, give thanks. Thanks for all the relationships
you have made or continued; thanks for the wonderful staff, customers,
suppliers and workmates you have; thanks for the opportunities this
fantastic country presents us with.
at TEAM thank all our new and loyal clients for their support during
2013. We look forward to continuing and advancing our relationship
in 2014 and as such wish you all a safe, invigorating and enjoyable
Christmas and New Year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS (2012)
It's nearly that time of year once more. A time for giving and
receiving, over indulgence and reflection.
Christmas is a perfect opportunity for catching up with friends
and family, for taking a well-earned break and preparing ourselves
for the New Year. It is traditionally a time of goodwill and celebration
that transcends race, creed and religion in today's society.
This is an ideal time to reflect upon the peaks and troughs of
the past year, to offer words of thanks for the achievements and
efforts of your employees, after all, these people are a valued
asset that are intrinsic to your everyday business and continued
We here at TEAM wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that
you have a safe, prosperous and happy New Year!
