As our Engineers headed off for the holidays, we asked them what they wanted to find in their stockings this Christmas.
From the deadly serious to the jokey, here are a few of their responses. I’ll leave you to decide which is which.
“25 hours in a day. Oh, and the time to write that book on branding and multiplicity in marketing!” – Giles Lury, executive chairman
“Fifa 12 by EA, and a pair of Nike Tiempo IV Elite Football Boots” – Will Butterworth, consultant
” A TVE cloning machine, to make those awkward diary clashes a thing of the past.” – Richard Oldham, joint managing director
“A week in the Maldives, please” – Liana Gregorians, marketing analyst (Hear hear, Liana, can we come too? – Ed)
“A Starbucks room in the office – decorated in Starbucks’ warm colours, with comfy chairs and a professional barista to make us delicious coffees to suit our individual tastes – somewhere we can retreat, meet, chat, think, read, relax and laugh.” – Katy Mousinho, joint managing director
“A Mulberry handbag and a desk that stays clear for the first week of January” – Rebecca Gaul, consultant
And a final request to the man in red, on behalf of all those Engineers who live east of Beaconsfield:
“A law against drivers who stay in the outside lane doing 40 mph on the A40.” – David Holland, consultant
So there you have it: a few thoughts on the stocking fillers we’ve been hoping for this Christmas. To all our readers, best wishes for the holidays, and here’s hoping that Santa brought you all you were dreaming of as we head into 2012.
