The mood was lively on December 1, 2012 as employees and members of the board of directors of TATT gathered together at the Chinese restaurant of the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA). Attendees enjoyed a sumptuous Christmas dinner, live parang and even a dance performance from several TATT staffers. The evening's theme was "Hawaii" and many guests wore flowing sarongs and leis (Hawaiian floral necklaces).

The highlight of the event was the 2012 Employee Awards Ceremony, in which Mr. James took top honours. Mr. James, who also won the title of "Professionalism and Performance Core Values Champion 2012," was chosen from a pool of over 30 nominees and four semifinalists. During the period in question, Mr. James exhibited excellence and professionalism by becoming one of the Caribbean's foremost experts on the digital switchover (the planned move of televisions from analog to digital technology).

"In my experience with TATT, I continue to be impressed by the commitment of the staff and by the fact that a significant portion of the staff are young people. That bodes well for the future. I want to put out the challenge to you that by the tenth annual dinner celebration this TATT will be the foremost authority of its kind in the Caribbean."
