Recognizing a Leader with a Group Card

In 2018, Deborah KL wrapped up her two year stint as the president of the Association of American Women in Europe.  To thank her for the time and commitment to the organization, the group put together a ‘thank you’ Kudoboard highlighting Deborah’s two years in office.

The board includes dozens of effusive notes to Deborah recognizing her efforts.  Here are just a few excerpts:

“Thank you for your leadership, your poise, your empathy, your spontaneous literary quotations, your unflagging humor and overall grace. As AAWE President you have nurtured our beloved association to a renaissance in membership and enthusiasm.”

“I have so enjoyed having you as President, your enthusiasm, efficiency and constant good humour were a pleasure. I know what that job takes and can profoundly appreciate all the time, work and love that you have given. Could we talk you into another year?”

“What a pleasure it’s been to work with you, and to see AAWE thrive and flourish, buzzing with fun events and innovative ideas. It’s inspiring to see how you dash from parties to financial seminars to support training, usually with a tin of home-baked goodies under your arm, and always with your finger on the pulse of what makes our club tick.”

The notes of appreciation go on (see full Kudoboard here), and it was a terrific treat for Deborah when she received the board.  “I LOVE it!!!!” said exclaimed in a follow-up survey. “The photos, the messages, the whole idea was a wonderful surprise and is a precious memento from my dear friends.”

From all of us at Kudoboard, Deborah, congrats on the clear impact you had with your organization.  And thanks for allowing us the privilege to share your Kudoboard story!
