Hawksworth Communications – our team’s New Year’s Resolutions


Twenty-sixteen is in full swing and it’s time to put those New Year’s resolutions into action. Our team wants to get fit, explore Vancouver more and make the most of our beautiful backyard. Here are our resolutions for the New Year…


“I want to explore the city and surrounding areas more on the weekends. I’d also like to go zip-lining at Grouse Mountain and try more restaurants in the city, especially Juniper in Chinatown.” – Jen, Intern


“My New Year’s resolution is to learn how to cook so I know how to do something other than melt cheese on bread or create charcuterie plates when friends visit.” – Eva, Account Assistant


“My New Year’s resolution is to do the Grouse Grind. As a born-and-raised Vancouverite, I’ve always felt it is something I should do, yet it’s taken me 25 years to get around to it!” – Brianna, Account Coordinator


“I’m going to try some of the crazy exercise classes in the city like bunny yoga or kangoo jumping. At least I might develop some abdominal muscles from laughing a lot.” – Amy, Content Manager & Digital Media Strategist


“My resolution is to drink more wine… and also to lose my baby weight through training for a half-marathon that I’m taking part in this summer.”  – Sarah, Account Manager


“Speeding up the daily dog walk with running on the North Van Trails with my labrador Benjamin – in training for the Half Corked Marathon!” – Marisa, Account Director


“Along with everyone else a top priority for 2016 is to stay fit and eat healthy but I’m also looking to have fun while doing it!  Tennis is a passion and there are lots of great public courts in Vancouver, including my favourite sunset spot at Jericho Beach. I’ve been hearing great things about Acorn on Main Street – it’s a vegetable forward/ vegetarian restaurant  that I really want to try.

“Exercising the mind is also important and one of my goals for 2016 is to be more curious – curiosity broadens the mind, opens up new worlds and possibilities, keeps us ahead of the trends and helps promote out-of-the-box creative thinking: an important trait for a PR professional.  I’m planning to take a leaf out of my eight-year-old’s book and to ask more questions. I’d also like to incorporate more diversity into my reading and to cultivate a culture of curiosity within our agency where we’re not afraid to say we don’t know or to be wrong but we are always keen to learn and share and explore.” – Annabel, Agency Principal
