I couldn’t be happier and more proud for a very good friend. Just last night, my dear & annoyingly amazing #63 text me a “guess what…” before calling and sharing the news about winning “The Next Best Thing” award for TSLA (I’d check on the exact title once official news gets published) at Marketing Magazine’s award ceremony at The Marriott.
I was elated! This fine young dude has been able to do it all. Experience university at campus, get his honours, be a fantastic friend whose always there and getting recognized for his work in the industry shortly after joining the rat race. And I know he’s definitely worked off his arse to deserve this one, pouring in 200% more than what he possibly can each time, squeezed dry of creative brain juices for pitches after pitches, campaigns after campaigns. I’m pretty sure there’s more to watch for this one.
Meanwhile, I can’t wait for the celebrations to roll in. Its been a while since I’ve seen the man and I really need to congratulate him on this one.
Go Kris Go!
