It’s such as kick to be sharing with you great news as we move into the second quarter of the year and prepare for months of celebrations ahead. Why the party mode, you might ask? It’s not every year you come of age and turn eighteen – or open a FIFTH office. Yes, that’s right, Thrive has taken up permanent residence on the Gold Coast and opened our second location in Queensland.
In 2000 when I started the business, “Thrive” was an easy choice of a name. “To grow vigorously, flourish and be successful” is such a strong definition to build a business upon. It’s what we continue to live and breathe by today. I chose a dragonfly for our logo…she is strong, agile and energetic. She symbolises change and pivots with clear direction.
I’ve been asked, “What’s the secret formula?” How the hell did we land global brands in our first year of business and eighteen years on, create a portfolio that rivals the biggest agencies in the region?
We put it down to a few things:
We work with really great people.
We strive for continuous improvement EVERY day.
We do what say we are going to do.
It’s a smart and simple approach to doing business. And if you know us well, you’ll have experienced the magic.
Although our natural disposition is to ‘just get on with it’, this year we intend to share with you some old yarns from the past, tell you more about our news of the day and give you a taste of what the future at Thrive and our industry looks like.
By choice, Thrive remains 100% family owned, independent and female-led. We hope that you will join us as our journey continues.
