13 Years of Gratitude

17 Jun 2022

I write gratitude lists often. They uplift me and help me stay balanced. Like meditation, I find that practicing gratitude fosters a positive perspective and healthy mindset. Or as my colleague Cedric Lai reminds us, the more you thank life, the more life gives to be thankful for.

Following another rollercoaster year across the Asia-Pacific region, I thought it would be fun to ask the Sinclair team what they are grateful for. And I’m so glad I did. The quotes they shared are a testament to the kindness, professionalism, passion and creativity that inspires me each day. I hope they inspire you, too.


I’m grateful for…

As we celebrate 13 lucky years of Sinclair this week, I’d like to take the opportunity to express my personal gratitude to my colleagues who – together – truly make #TeamAwesome, our clients for their continued partnership and trust, our industry friends for their support (and healthy competition), the many associations that we participate in who give us the opportunity to learn and share, our network partners and indie friends across the globe, our families for supporting us to grow our careers, the suppliers who facilitate our work… the list goes on and on.


Thank you all.
