As many of you know, Barbara was very fond of giving toasts in a variety of settings, whether it was a casual dinner, a holiday gathering, or a leadership retreat. At such events Barbara would often spontaneously require everyone to participate in giving a toast, whether it was an employee, consultant, or innocent bystander. As the company expanded and the gatherings and meetings grew larger, it became more difficult to insist that everyone provide a toast, so she came up with creative ways to incorporate toasts, including nominating the newest member of each team or submitting toast ideas in advance for a competitive “toast-off.” In all the various forms of toasting that we’ve grown accustomed to over the years, the bottom line has been simple: toast someone or something that in some way moved you, whether it was to laughter or to tears. We invite you now to join in Barbara’s tradition by using the “leave a reply” option below and offering a toast to Barbara. Cheers!
