Firstly our master chefs Marta Kacprzak (Communications Manager) and Peter Brookes-Smith (group MD), sat together and looked at the available ingredients; creative people, a world-class city in the form of Wroclaw and a serious desire to have fun. Of course, you always have to consider general ambience and surroundings. We needed somewhere spacious, with a magical interior, clandestine recesses, a large conference room and of course a dance floor. Zaklęte Rewiry in Wroclaw (Eng.: enchanted district) met the brief perfectly.
With the venue set, the final menu was a revelation….
Our master chefs pulled out all the stops for an unforgettable start to the day.
The party spilt into 10 groups with a specific task: to prepare a 3-minute silent movie about company life. To spice it up a bit, each group had 10 words and 10 props to include in the film. As expected, the Objectivity employees turned out to be born movie stars, with overacting worthy of a Monty Python comedy. Film topics included everyday subjects such as office romance, organ transplants and the secret life of ninja agile developer monks.
After the excitement of the appetizer, everyone was ready for some sustenance. This came in the form of the magnificent seven; the bravest in Objectivity delivering their TED speeches to the assembled 200. We believe in lifelong learning at Objectivity, and the topics did not disappoint. We heard about antifragility, chicken training, quantum physics and generation gaps along with self-improvement and the history of Objectivity. A feast for the eyes and ears!
All the best menus finish with something sweet, preferably with a cherry on the top. After 12 hours of active participation in such an amazing event, it was time to kick back, put on our dancing shoes and celebrate the joy of Christmas in the company of friends.
