Last year, Citizen Relations unveiled The Mods – the global communications agency’s first annual value awards. The awards recognize those Citizens who best embody the company’s core values: 

  • Set The Standard 
  • Do What’s Right
  • Champion Equity 

The winners won an all-expenses paid three days at any of the 10 Citizen offices across North America and Europe in addition to a donation to a non-profit organization of their choice. 

Hear about our winner’s experience below as we gear up for the 2024 MODs! 

Paige Caldeira, Senior Account Manager (London)

Trip to: Toronto 

Non-Profit Organization: LaunchGood campaign for the MATW-Project

The most common conversation starter I had in Canada was ‘Why Canada?’ and even more frequently ‘Why Canada in the middle of Winter!?’. But despite temperatures being in double-digit minuses, I would still pick Canada in the winter in a heartbeat! 

My MOD’s trip to Toronto was an unforgettable adventure filled with breathtaking landscapes, wonderful people and a city that’s so culturally vibrant, with so many things going on, I was constantly at a loss as to how I would fit everything in on my bucket list in such a short trip! Visiting the Toronto office and meeting new Citizen colleagues, gaining insights into the wonderful world of Molson (thanks for the merch!), was just the cherry on top of this MODs trip. The Toronto team is a dream team, seriously! It was great to be an outsider looking into such a well-oiled machine and seeing their passion for excellence and teamwork! Let’s not forget their buzzing weekly status’ and being put in the hot seat… I promise adult fun-houses are a thing in the UK! You all made me feel so welcome and brought all the vibes.

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Citizen for providing me with this incredible MODS opportunity and giving me the chance to explore and discover the beauty of Canada, along with meeting so many incredible people in the Toronto office. I want to thank you all so much for making me feel so welcome, included and heard in the Toronto office and for making my office experience (and social!) super special. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and it is one that I’ll remember for the rest of my career!
