Happy Christmas or Happy Promotion?

The season for Christmas greetings is here and I enjoy to hear from people I know but I can’t say I enjoy getting a Christmas getting from an organisation – people wish  people a happy Christmas, organisations are, yes, organisations and do promotions not Christmas wishes.

It doesn’t matter how personalised a card is, if it isn’t signed by the hand of a person I know then it is a promotion – no matter hos much it is camouflaged as a Christmas card.

Great to get a card (or mail) from you, if you are a friend, family or people I know from a work related situation and have met in real life or had a useful dialogue with online – however this doesn’t include have got hold of my CV or found my web-site (recruitment agencies do you listen!!).

Happy Christmas and enjoy the opportunities the season gives for engaging with people that know you. People say Happy Christmas, organisations don’t….
