Your Consulting Firm’s Most Important Gifts

Millions of people give gifts on the day of this article’s publication.

Your action (the one you promised):

Let me and other readers know your gifts by posting them in the comments below.

    We used to send out a card announcing a non-profit donations which fell on deaf ears. Then we switched back to a physical item which resonated with a lot more individuals. The branded golf umbrella was the best gift by far.
