On turning two

February 1, 2012

For a young child, two is a great year. You spend the first twelve months observing and learning the sights and sounds. You begin recognising good people, choosing some to love, and being loved in return – and often smiling. Initially toothless and innocent, but now with shiny, pearly-whites. The next twelve months are spent crawling, imagining, discovering.

And then by 24 months you can hopefully – Run.

That is where we are now.

From 13 people united by one common dream operating out of a building site, as the agency was literally erected around us, to being a battalion of 92 hugely talented friends, led by a federation of entrepreneurs.

We are fortunate to have some of South Africa’s and the world’s most loved, admired and iconic brands living under our roof. We have been entrusted with some very complex business and marketing problems and have made great strides through the openness, willingness, engagement and most importantly, trust demonstrated by our Clients in helping them find compelling, exciting and sustainable solutions to these problems.

So, to all our Clients who have chosen to work with us, who’ve put their faith in M&C SAATCHI ABEL, we extend our massive thanks and debt of gratitude. Your trust is without question, our most important asset. Our hope is that we continue to work many happy and fruitful years together.

To our people, we thank you for being part of driving the critical change – and our offering that is so necessary in the “industry”. Our adage is “behaviour is truth”, and your commitment has been beyond reproach. Your passion, energy and time make this company so gratifying to be a part of – and the results are there.

But beyond that, the level of sheer talent and the fearless need to charter new territory to grow our Client’s top-lines and market-share, is the very thing that has allowed us to discover new and better solutions.

Here’s to the next 24 months of our journey. And to continue running free.
