A day of fun, friendship and teamwork at our summer away day
We recently enjoyed our company-wide away day at the University of Warwick. The event brought together so many colleagues from across our nine UK offices, with many meeting for the first time face to face.
The day began with a BBQ to fuel us up for an afternoon of activities. The fun games saw us working together in teams going head to head with each other to crown the ultimate champions, from frisbee throwing and kerby, to hop scotch and ‘red light, green light’.
The challenges saw us collaborating with our team mates and working together with plenty of laughter and fun, all in the spirit of friendly competition. We thoroughly enjoyed the chance to get outside in the fresh air, surrounded by nature, despite the inevitable British weather.
After a well-deserved rest, we gathered again for drinks before being welcomed to dinner by our managing directors. A live band took us through the night with a mix of songs across the years and got us up on our feet dancing! We enjoyed reflecting on the fantastic day we’d spent together, celebrating our wins and the people who make us who we are.
