This week proved that not everybody is leaving an agency because he/she is forced to. Out of his own free will, one of my colleagues Tom Theys is going to switch jobs. Tom is one of the best planners I've ever worked with. He actually won 2 bronze Cannes Lions this year (and no, not because he was part of the 'team', he was the creative on that idea). I want to wish him a lot of success with his new job at Publicis.
A goodbye-drink was organised for Tom in a restaurant in the centre of Brussels. A lot of colleagues were dressed in green T-shirts that were especially made for the occasion. We sang songs, cursed at Tom for leaving the agency and Hannah and I got pretty drunk because we realized too late that Duvel beer has an alcohol percentage of 8,5%.
