The revelation that many people probably spend more time with their work colleagues than they do with their own family is well known but sometimes forgotten. Great friendships, professional relationships and often life long memories are to be found with the very people you sit near, eat next to and work with every day.
When people move on or retire from a team, department or company, it can be a really emotional event. Some people prefer to quietly slip away without fuss while others like to mark their big goodbye in style in the company of those they have worked with.
Often, we are called to provide a collaborative team activity that will send off the individual on a high and leave nothing but fond memories. Perhaps as part of the last day, or even as part of an evening celebration, we are tasked with bringing as much fun and laughter to the occasion as possible.
As some of our most popular core activities are music and dance related, creating a positive party atmosphere is easy. Drumming and singing are very popular team activities that are regularly requested for this type of corporate event. This is because both evoke passion, energy and a feeling of creating something special together. Depending on the personality of the person leaving, he or she can also take a significant role in the activity.
Last night, we delivered our Crashing Waiters event. This surprise dinner activity is normally delivered just for pure entertainment and a blast of fun. However, on this occasion, our client’s long standing CEO was retiring.
We were able to take the incredible energy of our kitchen utensil orchestra created out of 100 diners and devote the completed performance to the CEO.
He stood on the dance floor in prime position watching and listening to members of his company all playing for him. It was a powerful and emotional way of everyone saying a very loud thank you!
People playing any type of music together and devoting it to someone is always special and the reaction from the room last night was a testament to that.
