In-house we took on 2 Business Directors & 1Digital Manager in Sydney and 1 Business Director in Perth. This involved reorganising the office a total of 12 times (although we think Michael quite enjoys it).
We held 2 Think-and-Do Tanks that produced 2 equally awesome playbooks.
No of Leadership events – 33 – Covering our 6 areas of particular expertise – New Ways of Working, Leadership, Flexibility & Diversity (hurrah for marriage equality), Talent, Culture & Change.
Our 6 Breakfast breakout sessions and 1 Ambassadors evening have been a wonderful way to connect with our close community and welcome new voices. Despite 95 Bananas being consumed, we think that coffees drunk have topped the 310mark (and counting).
We have some amazing people working with us in advisor roles, sharing deep expertise and capabilities in their own fields. We counted at least 117 of them on the MWAH couch and photographed as many as possible so we could create a wall of fame to make them feel special, (even baby Coco).

To us, it represents our brand and our vision.
Blue – Our ‘way of working’ – if we all worked together in a more human way, we could change the ‘ocean’ that is the way we work now. “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop’.
Red – Our Community – A campfire, around which we are all included. Coming together to change the conversation.
Green – Big Thinking – New ideas, new growth, new possibilities.
Yellow – Our Partners – Sunshine that shines a light on new ideas and different ways, and helps them grow.
As a team, we have grown, bonded, laughed and worked our socks off.
We’ve introduced some huge office successes and experienced a few failures. Relaxation days and massages were a winner. We loved the immersion into the Halloween vibe and whopped with delight over marriages and babies. We learned that no pants Friday was confronting for some whilst indoor cricket posed too many risks. Whilst we are all exposed to Dad jokes throughout our lives we concluded that active encouragement is never the answer.
With all the feedback we received from our team we are ridiculously excited for 2018 and are particularly looking forward to the ‘Re-enactment of Popular Musicals Day’ and the next excuse to drink champagne.
If you need to bond better with your team, contact us to learn or find out more about the brilliant facilitation guides and toolkits we offer.
