Gold star status is a level that professionals reach for, no matter the industry. It can be a plaque, an incentive like vacation time, cake (my personal favorite) or season tickets. More often than not, it’s about being surrounded by like-minded individuals and receiving recognition for your efforts to elevate practices. It just so happens, by proxy, that you’re awesome.
This about sums up our Recognizing Industry Success and Excellence (RISE) Award winners, received their awards on June 24 at the Marriott Vancouver Hotel. For the overview of how we approached the award program, check out this previous post. The winners are listed here, along with the description of their achievements. Congrats to all the winners!
Kristen K. did a great interview with David Rich, one of 2010’s winners, and you can check it out here. Kristen said of her experience:
“Coming to you LIVE from my cubicle, I would like to present a podcast featuring David Rich, recipient of a RISE Award. Albeit, this podcast took an arm and a leg to put together - yes, I'm not always perfect - David was an absolute joy to record and I hope you are able to download this podcast and listen to it on your flight.”
