Yay! We had our first annual retreat last year on December 11, 2020. It was an exciting time for everyone represented at the company. We had lots of fun and experienced wonderful moments at Ilashe private beach. Our gathering was one of its kind.
Alexander Nelson Consulting is an advisory, sales and marketing company that offers bespoke real estate business solutions. We had our business launch at mid-year 2020, and we were anticipating the retreat. As the Covid-19 pandemic ushered a new era in the work environment, we embraced the new normal of operating virtually.
Honestly, we thought we would have to resort to having our retreat virtually too. But an adjustment to the restrictions on social gatherings made it possible. Our management spared no expense in making the anticipated event worthwhile.
How We Started The Retreat
The retreat began with a boat ride to the beach. As the boats glided out of the harbour and bobbed onwards, the sea was a captivating sight. It was quite mesmerizing.
On arrival, the program was in full swing. We prayed and sang, giving thanks to God for a successful year no matter how challenging it was, then we had our first delicious meal with flavoured selections from the drink stand.
Soon after, we were engaged in various fun activities from tennis to swimming, horse riding to dancing and several other activities keeping ourselves entertained.
It was a sight to behold as our director, Mr. Sesan Olukoya joined in the fun party. We had lunch, another sumptuous meal, and we all went back to having more fun.
Some photographers captured our beautiful and thrilling moments as we made memories. We had a question game, and there was a tie among four staff members. There was a dance competition to break the tie, and the best dancer went home with the prize.
As the retreat came to a close, we had dinner while enjoying chit chat among ourselves.
How We Ended The Retreat
Our director formally appreciated the efforts of the staff members during the year. He mentioned he had more expectations next year and he was looking forward to our cooperation to achieve them all. We were all smiles recounting our beautiful moments as we took a boat ride back to shore to our different destinations.
