Now’s the time when many people are preparing to spend the holidays with family and friends, wrapping up another year of business and looking at what 2013 will bring.  For us here at Activ8, it’s been a fun and progressive time working with great clients and adding another component to our business, training professionals to be social media savvy.

 

 

We love what we do in the creative industry sharing ideas and strategies that help people and businesses to succeed. What we enjoy most is empowering others to be highly effective communicators delivering their talents and value offerings to the world through their businesses.  I recently taught a class for the Squamish Nation’s Small Business Program where entrepreneurs can learn how to use social media to advance their business communications.  The new course was a huge success and I’m grateful to program administrator, Geena Jackson for presenting us with this wonderful opportunity.

 

And a recently fun find for corporate Christmas gifting is a company called Sugar Cookies and Confections who I think does a fantastic job of helping businesses to spread festive cheer with their customers while sending a brand message in a fun, tasty and memorable way.

 

 

 

 

 

Another fabulous idea whether for corporate clients or personal purposes is to give the gift of art and culture through Spirit Works Authentic Aboriginal Artwork. These beautiful bentwood boxes in Coast Salish style are an excellent way to express your gratitude to someone important.

 

The boxes are also quite practical for using in the home or at the office!

 

 

Merry Christmas to all!  May this Christmas season bring you together with your favorite people sharing in the holiday spirit.  Best wishes for a happy, healthy and successful 2013.
