Winner Away Day: Falconry and Off-Road Driving
Two employees from Corecom Consulting embarked on a ‘Winner Away Day’ (WAD Day) for their tireless work over the last few months. Each quarter, employees go head to head with each other to win this coveted prize, competing on the quality of business and relationships nurtured.
The lucky pairing of Andreas Xiarchos and Jamie Gillan were taken out of work by Director, Jonathan Sanderson, to travel to Coniston Hotel and Spa near Skipton to take on a number of surprise activities including: a falconry experience, blindfolded 4×4 driving, an off-road driving experience and a spa evening with a cold glass of champagne. Speaking about WAD Day, Andreas Xiarchos said:
“I really enjoyed the outdoor activities, especially the falconry experience. It was fantastic to see such large birds of prey out in the open doing what they do best.
“Relaxing in the spa afterwards was a nice change from being in work, and the milkshake from Billy Bobs at the end of the day really tied the knot in a great experience.”
Commenting on his experience, Jamie Gillan said:
“What I enjoyed most about the day was the new experiences that I endured. I really enjoyed the blindfolded 4×4 driving as it was a fantastic team building exercise where I had to place a lot of trust in my colleagues.
“I couldn’t knock the day at all, I loved it, and there was no better way to destress from the off-road driving than relaxing in the spa with a glass of champagne.”
The WAD Day activities are always kept as a surprise for employees who are only told about the events on the day. The next WAD Day will take place in April, the activities of which are only known by Director, Jonathan Sanderson, who will keep them under lock and key until the time comes. What would your ideal WAD Day be?
