Let’s face it. In the end, the speeches will be forgotten, the food already digested, the occasion a bare memory. What will remain is the award, the plaque that serves as a lasting monument to the event. If you want to hold a memorable event, give a memorable award, one the recipient will be proud to prominently display in their office, boardroom or welcome area. Because after all, the award not only represents the significance of what was achieved, but your organization, often long after the event takes place. Shoddy trinkets won’t do. Give something that is quality, pristine and memorable. Posterity matters.
