Good people, good vibes and a glass of bubbly. What more could one ask for!
Last year, our annual Christmas party was hosted in the seaside town of Brighton in the UK. Colleagues from MBA offices across Europe got together to celebrate the festive season and toast our efforts and successes throughout the year.
The evening commenced in the reception bar of the rustic Old Ship hotel where old friends caught up and newcomers finally put names to faces whilst sharing a drink.
Everyone then made their way to the beautifully decorated Moulin Rouge style venue to start the night with fizz and canapés. We took our seats for a festive 3 course meal, after which the main event – our Annual Awards presentation – began.
Hosted by CEO Mike Garlick & Operation Director James Furlong, this year we dispensed with tradition and created our own entertainment. A delegation from each country was dispatched with national costumes and five minutes to create a traditional dance. We even appointed a judging panel.
“ The Eurovision Dance content was one of the funniest things I have seen! I couldn’t believe how well everyone got into the spirit of the thing – it made the whole event one of the most memorable yet” – Business Developer , UK
Onto the serious stuff, and a succession of awards delivered for outstanding performance throughout 2017. Some people continued a tradition of winning awards every year, some picked up awards for the very first time and a few came away with a haul of multiple awards.
“To be recognised for my efforts and have my fellow colleagues celebrate my success was an indescribable feeling” - Account Manager, Zurich
The atmosphere throughout the night was fantastic! It was a night with banter, funny dance moves and lots of successes, making it impossible to not have a good time.
Here are some of the best pictures from the night.
