As we bid adieu to another year, the entire Cultivate team is thrilled to take a moment to reflect on the journey we've shared with you in 2023. Every conversation, gift program, and touch point has been a chapter in our story, from achieving and celebrating significant milestones to creating new connections, fostering existing ones, and more.

Before the ball drops, join us in this special sign-off as our team of experts reminisces on previous wins and sets sights on the promising year ahead. 


Nurturing Talent

Our first internship program brought a wave of fresh energy and faces, helping us continue to shape Cultivate's future by welcoming new perspectives and ideas. In case you missed it, read more about our intern program in this previous blog feature.


We’re Growing!

It’s true what they say: teamwork makes the dream work! In 2023, Cultivate was thrilled to welcome new hires and key roles across various departments, including Engineering, Sales, Client Success, Marketing, and Accounting. Each of these has helped our teams achieve more, ensure we have the right people in the right seats, and strengthen company culture.


The Next Chapter of On-site Gifting

A new way to plan event gifting programs launched in October, thanks to our On-site Gifting Lookbook. This not only serves as a canvas for our Marketing team’s creativity and brand development, but it showcases our entire team’s dedication to delivering memorable gifting programs for events, meetings, and incentive trips unlike any other. With so much to consider and opinions to satisfy, planners' plates are full. That’s why we’ve made planning programs easier than ever. We hope the On-Site Gifting Lookbook becomes your ultimate resource, from expert advice and what’s new to premium gifts you can’t get anywhere else. Check it out!

This year’s inaugural holiday webinar created a festive space for Cultivate founder Tom Romine to share insights and advice about ways to maximize holiday gifting, inspire conversations, and provide many opportunities to hand out premium gifts. If you weren't able to join us for the live webinar, you can access the on-demand recording in our Resource Hub at any time. Pssst… stay tuned for more exclusive webinars and free gifts in the new year!
