What I did learn this year is that we should give each other more compliments. We have already made a good start on this during an away-day for professors. Let us all take this further. As students, give a compliment to someone from the support staff, and as an Associate Professor give a compliment to an Assistant Professor. Together we ensure that the faculty remains a nice place.
It is important that we keep an eye on each other, even in difficult moments. So give each other a compliment, even if it's a small one, it might just be what the other person needs.
I will start right away. I am proud of everyone I had the opportunity to work with this year, either student or staff member, thanks to you I had a fantastic year, thank you for that.
