What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you’re invited to a ‘Quarterly Meeting’? Loads of paperwork, number crunching, a round table conference in a room full of suits od’ing on coffee and trying really hard to stay awake? At Found, we know this is far from the truth.
Last Thursday, we Founders got together to celebrate the first quarter of 2012. We started the year with a bang – along with a bunch of happy clients, we bagged some new ones, a few new faces joined us and together we continued to create some good old magic.
The team put together a fantastic presentation outlining their challenges and achievements, key among which are the facts that we beat targets set up based on the previous quarter, personal and professional, gathered some glowing praise from our clients and are continuously pushing and expanding the boundaries of performance marketing.
Our new lead designer Andrea Downey was awarded Outstanding Contribution for the Quarter for all her hard work on re-branding Found. Super amazing Director of Account Management, Angela Greenwood took home the Best Performance award, being voted in by a crew of ever grateful Founders for her boundless energy and ‘can do’ attitude. Her insurmountable knowledge and nifty client servicing skills have made Found an agency to reckon with. Special mentions were also given to Pete Newman and Heeral Shah, both of who have been bringing in the BOOMTING and smiles amongst other things.
And that’s not it.
The fabulous Flo organised a fantastic team building event which took most of us by surprise (about how much we liked it, well, me at least)! We all headed down to Innovation Warehouse where Red Letter Days had set the stage. There we were divided into teams and made to draw and paint parts of a Picasso painting.
Banter and creative chaos ensued. While some teams had long discussions on the accurateness of dimensions and picture quality, some teams like ours decided to go free hand, impressionist and abstract all at the same time. However when it was time for the big reveal, a collective ‘OH WOW’ was heard as we managed to even surpass our own expectations! The Found Picasso was truly breath taking. It is absolutely amazing what teamwork can accomplish and we at Found are testament to it.
We all then proceeded to Giant Robot – a smart, trendy bar in Clerkenwell which served up some delicious cocktails and scrumptious snacks. It was the perfect close to a terrific day and as many of us slowly turned the bar in to a graveyard of empty prosecco bottles and cocktail glasses we also toasted to good health, happiness and another fabulous quarter at Found.
