Discussion Forum #5 - What Has Been Your Proudest Career Moment?

We’ve all been there…

Often boggled down by unreasonable deadlines, non-existent support from bosses, sadistic colleagues who gleefully plot our falls from grace, and stressful work cultures, we’ve (silently) threatened to quit.

Or we’ve daydreamed about leaving corporateville altogether and becoming entrepreneurs.

Or perhaps we’ve visualised retreating to some serene oasis for much-needed mental, spiritual and physical rejuvenation.

I get it.

Still, take a moment to truly reflect on the entirety of your career.  There has to be some spark, some moment in your long (or short) professional life, whereby you felt truly fulfilled because your efforts lead to results that made everything you had endured up until that point worth it.

Did you catch a mistake that saved your company millions?

Did you reveal some deep rot in the organisation?

Did you champion a worthy cause?

Or perhaps you finally mastered a much-dreaded application, solved a complex problem or simply made your work environment a happy place.

There must be something in your professional journey that you’re proudest of and we’d love to hear about it in this discussion forum.
