" Ask me if I feel confident, I’ll tell you yes!"
This week we packed our boxes and moved our office downtown, to a beautiful swanky, old colonial building complete with manicured lawns and customised painted walls.
Sounds deserving of a soon to be 10-year old PR firm that has carved its name, won significant accounts and no longer has to knock down doors to be heard. In fact it should be a glorious moment except for this tiny thing called global recession that has me wondering if the hard times will show up at my door as quickly as a champagne hangover.
I admit this may not have been the most opportune time to make my move. A banker advised against it. "Don’t incur more costs," he said sagely, noting that my rental charges would double and of course there were those gardening fees. But I had been planning this move for more than 6 months. We had identified this building not because of its old beautiful feel but because there was a large room which we felt could hold a communications and media training centre. We had also costed out the move to its last penny.
