We started our day with a yoga session led by one of our account managers to rejuvenate ourselves and get a good long stretch! Second, we began discussing the projects we worked on during the year of 2013. photo_22

We then moved to the boardroom on the 12th floor where we enjoyed a light breakfast and some coffee before getting hard to work on our company strategy for 2014.

We had 3 presentations, several brainstorming sessions, as well as a round table discussion to really get the most out of the entire team. We thoroughly enjoyed the dynamic discussion and had a chance to reflect on the past year which included discussing our shortcomings and suggesting improvements as well as celebrating our triumphs and successes.
