We started the year off strong by celebrating our team and recognising the value of their hard work at our first Team Day on Friday, 28 January. After almost two years of social distancing and lockdown, we made sure that it was extra fun! We also made sure to take time during the day to reflect on the previous year and all that we achieved together and aim to achieve in the current year.
Our colleagues from the Kenya, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth offices joined us for the Team Day which sealed the deal that we had to make this a truly Capetonian day. We booked the open-top sightseeing red bus and Table Mountain Aerial Cableway tour. The bus route let us explore the Mother City and many of her top attractions whereafter we ascended to the top of Table Mountain for spectacular views of the city and Atlantic Seaboard.
Even though the mountain was under mist, and it was cold we still climbed to the top. Richard Barry, our Chief Innovation Officer, had to buy a warm top on the mountain and everyone who had a blanket or something warm was wrapped in it. It was probably the fastest anyone has even been up and down Table Mountain.
Our last stop for the day was Sea Point where we enjoyed some hot beverages and lunch. At the end of the day, we had a successful Team Day that included beautiful sights and we enjoyed good food and fellowship.
