Arabian Desert surprise

last week, our department had its team building at the Godolphin Ballroom of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel. it was a half day activity which started with a buffet lunch at the foyer of the ballroom, and followed by 4 stimulating activities. needless to say, the food was terrific! well enough to energize us for the rest of the day’s proceedings. and all the activities we did were memorable. the challenges presented to us accented the key aspects of working together as a team, and what's more fun is that we got to discover the other side of our colleagues.

after 4 hours of pure enjoyment, our MD capped off the event by distributing a special envelope for each of us. last year, Business Development won the “Department of the Year” award (and i'm proud to say that i was part of the committee who worked on the paper we submitted to the judges). all staff were awarded a voucher for 2 nights stay for 2 at Dubai’s most plush desert hotel, Jumeirah Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa. it’s valid ‘till December so hubby and i can plan our stay on November, just when the weather is a bit cooler. wee, i’m excited already, and i can’t wait to try their spa packages!
