We think working for ThurstonTalk.com is not only fun, but an outstanding example of the impact of meaningful leadership, progressive organizational structure and dedication to team members – and we aren’t the only ones!

While the Lacey South Sound Chamber of Commerce supports local businesses throughout the year, many of those businesses especially look forward to the chamber’s annual “Business Awards.” This year’s event took place on February 7, 2018 at Saint Martin’s University. With great honor, ThurstonTalk.com is proud to have been awarded the 2018 Workplace Excellence award.
