Coming Up this year 2011

The Simson Family Christmas Tree

The Simson Family Christmas Tree

I always get a little melancholy to say good-bye to such a fabulous year. 2010 was a year that made so many dreams come true. In our wildest dreams I did not imagine that we would achieve the growth that RedBalloon had this year – and more importantly the number of people we have served. If we think about the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Grand Final day – that is the number of people I need to THANK for choosing RedBalloon as gifts this Christmas.

We have had many new people join RedBalloon and each of them has grasped our values and sense of purpose with vigor – how lucky I am to work with such an amazing team of people. As I look to next year I think of the things that I want to achieve personally as well as professionally. I’m taking some time with the family to enjoy a white Christmas and some extreme skiing for a few weeks. I’ll also take the time to jot some thoughts about the bigger games I want to play.

You can be assured that you will see lots more innovation from RedBalloon. As we come to our 10-year celebration we will look to the next decade with continued commitment to changing gifting in Australia and New Zealand forever.

Most importantly: I very much want to involve the people who read my blog in some of the ideas and inspirations so – given that I know people who read and comment on this blog are likely to enjoy experiences – I’ll be selecting someone who comments or subscribes each month to go and try a RedBalloon experience.

I’m excited by 2011, by the new challenges, the new people I will meet, the new innovations we will deliver – and most important the number of people we will touch with great experiences.

See you in a few weeks….wishing you the merriest of festive seasons.
