Catherine Powell, the previous President of Disney Parks West, has offered a farewell statement full of advice and parting words after leaving the company.
The statement, released via aLinkedIn, can be read in full here. The statement ends with the following 3 paragraphs, read below:
“Apparently Walt Disney himself “You may not realise it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in [the] world for you!” I can’t say gratitude was front of mind when it happened.
But some weeks after learning I was leaving Disney, I can reflect with immense appreciation on the opportunities and experiences afforded to me and my family. And most importantly on the chance to meet and work with some many incredible people who have lifted me up over the past 15 years to make me a much better version of myself.
As I make my jump to yet another stepping stone, I am excited and curious about what this next chapter might have in store. Maybe Walt was right, and this will be the best thing in the world for me!”
