Team Building Party

Its been around 2 years that I have been part of this team in Credit Suisse in Singapore. The team has grown enormously and have delivered many a projects, but none of us know each other properly and doesn't really know each other personally.

Finally this Friday, management has taken a step to give a Team Building party to the team. The attendance to this was compulsory. So evening by 4PM, we were all at the Ceylon Cricket Club to start a great evening. We were told that we will be having some games and then dinner at 6.30PM. When I heard about the games and saw the people around me, I thought what these old guys will play and this whole exercise would be a flop.

To my surprise once the games were started everyone forgot where they come from and what position they are in and have actually enjoyed the games part of the evening. We were split into 4 groups and were supposed to compete in 3 different games.

That's my team Red Bulls

After then games we went for dinner and drinks. After having 2 or 3 drinks we asked for some good music and then started dancing for a long time. We had food, drinks, danced and spoke to each other and in fact knew each other well. We had a great time till 1 in the night. In fact this is the first time I have got a chance to speak to all my bosses with whom I haven't really spoken for 2 years.

That's the final group who were there till Late night

Hope I will have these kind of parties quarterly.

One team building party in 2 years :)
Sounds like someone up above the SKY in the upper management wanted to have some free beers :)

Nice pics on facebook, looks like you all had a very nice time.

Haha .. That was a good one ..
But at the ground level, all the developers were atleast happy that the management has actually thought about it ..
The previous director never wanted these things to happen and there are lot of hopes with this new director ..
Infact nobody in the team knew me till this party and now everybody knows me very well as I was the main attraction and have entertained most of them ..
Anyways I would really like to have more and more parties like this :-)
