Thank you for all that you do to support your students. I have enjoyed partnering with you the last few years and appreciate your experience and commitment to your students.

You have always been so dedicated to the progress and success of our students, so a big thank you to you!  It is so refreshing to work with such positive and approachable mentors, such as yourself 🙂

Thank you for being an amazing mentor for our students.  It has been a pleasure working with you for the last few years!!  I always know you will respond to my emails and help me in motivating and encouraging our students.

Remind Yourself to Create Group Ecards

The new year is fast approaching. Take a minute to set reminders for yourself to use Kudoboard group ecards in 2019 here.

You can add next year’s birthdays, holidays, and special occasions into our reminder system now. We’ll email you one week prior to each of your events so that you remember to create your Kudoboard group ecards.

Thanks, and keep delivering happiness,

How to Sign a Card From a Group

If someone’s passing around a paper card for a birthday, holiday, or special occasion – the answer to the question is simple.  You sign your name, and that’s about it.  Nothing interesting or inspiring about it, because quite frankly – there isn’t space.

If you want to sign a card from a group using Kudoboard, however, you’ve got decisions to make.

You can add a photo of you and the recipient together.  You can upload a video you created on your phone (or embed one from youtube).  You can grab a GIF from our GIPHY library.  Or you can even write a heartfelt missive.  The point is – you’ve got options.  

As for the other contributors you invite to sign the card from your group – they’ve got options too.  Folks can add as much to the Kudoboard as they want.  With no constraints, the possibilities are endless.  The only question is, does your recipient prefer dancing cat or dog GIFs?

So get out there – send a card from your group.  But whatever you do, don’t just sign your name!

Thanks,

The Kudoboard team.

Celebrating a Milestone Birthday

Earlier this year, Paula W.’s family created a Kudoboard for her a milestone birthday.  Entitled “70 and Still Fabulous,” the board has pictures of Paula spanning back decades.  Here are a just a couple choice quotes from nieces on the board:

“I’m so grateful, thankful and blessed to have you in my life. Family is so precious. I appreciate my family more and more each day. The time we spend, the laughs we share and the memories we have will forever be ours. This picture makes my heart smile. This is the first Thanksgiving my aunts and uncles came to break bread at our house. To see you all together makes holidays worth all the work. I love you very much!”

“I will forever be grateful for the many times you picked me up and spent time with me, those moments still bring me so much happiness as you were part of the woman I am today! Never judging me through my mess, reminding me of all the great things I have within me, teaching me that “beauty knows no pain,” making me feel like a powerful force to be reckoned with, and just transferring good vibes and good energy my way! Thank you for everything, you will forever have a special place in my heart! I hope you have a very blessed 70th Birthday and hopefully I’ll see you soon! ”

Thanks for giving us permission to share your Kudoboard story, Paula, and from all of us at Kudoboard – we hope your 70th year is going fabulously!

Kudoboard eCards – Perfect For Retirement

When Dave P.  retired earlier this year, his colleagues  created him an amazing retirement Kudoboard to wish him well.  Here are just a couple choice quotes from Dave’s board:

“Words such as “Congratulations, Well Deserved, and You’ll be missed” aren’t enough to thank you for your contribution to the Forest Service, and the science community at large. Though as I look back at our five years of working together, I can’t help but emphasize those words. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement; it is so well deserved; and sadly, you will be missed! You have left a mark on our society, our Agency, the climate world and most of all, on me!”

“I have so many things to thank you for! Thank you for making me a better writer, for exemplifying professionalism, thank you for being understanding, and thank you for pushing me to be better! You have been the single most influential person in my career, and I fondly refer to you as “advisor gold”. The mark you have left on your students and colleagues has cascaded throughout our communities. Your work shows what a great scientist you are, and your interactions with individuals show what a great person you are.”

From all of us at Kudoboard – congrats, Dave, and thanks for giving us permission to share your retirement board!

Saying ‘Thanks’ with a Kudoboard

This past holiday season, parents of children attending Gumnut Kindergarten in Australia created a holiday card to deliver to teachers and staff at the school. There is clearly a tremendous sense of thanks and gratitude from the families of children attending the school, and as one parent put it:

“Thank you all to Gumnut kindy ladies for your love and support throught out these years. It’s so hard to believe this is our last year with you. It’s been such a pleasure to get to know you and we are very thankful for all your time and dedication, loving and nurturing our girls.”

Celebrating a Retirement with a Kudoboard Group Card

Brian’s colleagues from throughout his time at Danaher created him a retirement Kudoboard a few months back. A few choice quotes:

“Brian, it has been an honor and a privilege to have known you, even for a little while.”

“This is the best promotion of all so, congratulations! You’ve earned it. Thanks again for the support and guidance over the years, your day-to-day presence will be greatly missed.”

"A successful team is a group of many hands but of one mind. We were glad to work with a boss like you. You made this a great place to work. We will miss your amazing ability to motivate us every day. Enjoy your retirement and continue to spread your positive energy because I know you have plenty of it!”

Thanking a Mentor with Kudoboard

Katayoun Chamany’s students at the New School recently created her a Kudoboard to wish her a happy birthday and to thank her for her impact and mentorship throughout the years.  Based on the messages, it’s clear Dr. Chamany has had a major impact on her student’s lives. Here are a few choice snippets from the board:

“OK, where do I start. You are by far one of the most important people in shaping my academic and intellectual life. Every class I take, paper I write, or article I read, I have your voice in my head pushing me to think more broadly, deeply, and clearly.”

“You not only showed me that science is fascinating, you taught me that activism in science is essential.”

“It’s insufficient to thank you for your support and dedication because your impact has been so profound to me and I’m sure many, many other alums! ”

“Thank you for being an amazing mentor, friend, and overall positive influence in my life. You introduced me to so much as your student that drastically shifted my perspective and set me on the path that I’m on today.”

Thanks for letting us share your Kudoboard, Katayoun, and a belated Happy Birthday from all of us on the Kudoboard team!
