This past Friday was a little different than usual. It seemed normal at first as we gathered in the conference room, patched in the rest of the offices, and waited to hear what our CEO, David LaPlante had to say.
- He gave us a rundown on the recent progress we have been making.
- Announced the addition and promotion of some folks.
- Told us that we were going to be expanding our Salt Lake City office, as well as Las Vegas, Phoenix and Atlanta.
- Complimented us on what a great job we were all doing.
- And then he paused….
Suddenly, Martin Gastanaga, our COO wheeled in a giant box filled with individually wrapped presents. As they were being passed around, some of us were shaking our’s trying to figure out what it was; meanwhile, others were patient. But once we all had one we collectively tore into them. What was hidden beneath the paper was indeed an exciting surprise!
Every single member of the Twelve Horses team received a shiny new iPhone!
After things quieted down David closed the meeting with one final statement –
Go Play. Go Create. Go Make Them Better.
