Saying goodbye to bbd is more than just saying goodbye to a company for me. It’s saying goodbye to friends, colleagues and a whole country. When I made the decision to move to England in 2012, I had no idea this was the journey I was meant to take.
Being part of bbd has been a pleasure from day one. I’ve learned so much and grown as a person. I’ve met incredible people, worked with the best clients, and seen so many projects come to life. Even though I worked from home for the majority of the time, I’ve always felt part of the team, and we’ve all worked really hard together, and pushed each other to always be the best. This is the goal of a good team I think. We all matter, we are all equally important, and together we make the impossible possible.
For me, work is not just about the money. It is a passion, what drives you, and what inspires you to push yourself on your own journey. My work ethic is quite simple I think. It is all about trying, and doing it for yourself. I want to be better, because I know I am not finished learning.
Lisa’s Life Lessons
“You will never look good by making someone else look bad.”
“We are a team, we work together. The praise is never yours alone. Never stop saying thank you.”
“Remember, nothing is impossible. If a task seems impossible, take a breath, and break it down. Focus on what you understand, then take it step by step.”
“Never doubt yourself. If you don’t have the answer, relax. Your job is not to know everything. Your job is to find the answer. So if you don’t know, find someone who does.”
“Clients come to you for answers. Your job is to make their job easier.”
“Be proud of your projects, and be proud of what you do.”
bbd has been my passion, my drive, and my inspiration. I am beyond excited for the next steps in my personal journey, however, I will never stop being grateful for what bbd’s done for me.
All of the above would not have been possible without my mentor and my friend, Mags. Without her, I would not be where I am today. This is specifically for you Mags, you’ve helped shape me into the person that I am today. You never stopped pushing me, and you never allowed me to give up. You mean the world to me. Thank you for being my inspiration.
