Earlier this year we had our Big Day In – our annual staff conference. The day was engaging, fun and informative with the high point being our guest speaker Pip Cheshire from Cheshire Architects. Team based activities saw the guys attempting to survive a plane crash and a forced landing on the moon. The trade specific presentations were also popular with staff gaining a better understanding of other disciplines.
Our Big Day Out took us on an action-packed journey to Waiheke Island to let off some steam. Archery, laser clay shooting and craft beers in the sun followed by dinner at Onetangi Beach.
We missed the 7.30 pm ferry back to Auckland but didn’t care as the sunset was a stunner!
