My long serving Marketing Manager, Michelle Henson, left today to follow a business opportunity. In 4 1/2 years she has been truly amazing. What she wrote about the company on her last day makes me very proud and very humble. Below are Michelle’s words unedited.
What is it like working for Panalitix?
My first interaction was one of disbelief, something must be wrong; no company can have an energy like this.
Every single person in the team in amazing, I have never worked with such fun people before. And the clients, who would have thought, accountants are so much fun. I have made some great professional relationships in my time here.
If there are any bad eggs, they quickly eject themselves, as the company is one of collaboration, movement and being bad ass.
I cannot spread my arms the breadth enough to explain the opportunities you get to not only succeed in your role but to continuously learn and grow personally and professionally.
When you start a role here you will get the Rob talk “One day you will leave here….:
That is the defining conversation. The standards speak it. So do your best, do more than your best and through it you will become a better person.
If you do not have a personality, inner strength, or desire for greatness then this is not a place for you.
Clients ask – are you leaving? No I am not leaving. It is like the California Hotel, you can check out but you can never leave. Rob, Colin and their company – no matter what it is called, leave an indelible mark on your heart and mind, one that is only ever open to the future.
I go with a heavy heart after 4 ½ years. If not for personal circumstance, I believe this would be a lifetime role.
I studied an MBA but the best business knowledge I ever acquired was by working with Rob Nixon and Colin Dunn.
I will miss working here, and the high you get from team interactions, meeting dynamics and role variety.
