On Friday December 2nd the Christmas tree went up at Raise the Bar HQ to get us into the spirit for our Christmas night out at The Vincent in Liverpool.
In the evening we had a game of Secret Santa, where gifts including a Raise the Bar themed calendar and a t-shirt with a print of Bertie, RTB Director Jonathan’s pooch, were exchanged. We awarded the ultimate gift, both our ‘Shocker of the Fortnight’ and ‘Star of the Fortnight’ to Senior Speaker Consultant, Sam Brindley, and enjoyed some (or most!) of the amazing cocktails in The Vincent.
With Raise the Bar’s success this year and a record number of new staff joining our growing team, Digital Content Manager, Mark, devised a game of ‘Two Lies and a Truth’ so we could all get to know each other a little better!
A great night was had by all and we are thoroughly looking forward to the Christmas break after an exceptionally busy 2016 – here’s to another successful year!
The winner of our Christmas quiz on Wednesday 21st was Learning & Development Manager, Lee Rabbetts! Quiz Master and Digital Content Manager, Mark Hartley, made sure there were some obscure questions in there, including a whole round dedicated to questions about himself. We also had a picture round, a movie music round, a sport round, and a round on general knowledge. Speaker Consultant, Rucha Roberts, got the least questions right, but it’s the taking part that counts, hey!
December 22nd saw the last day in the office for the year, so the team celebrated with cheese, biscuits and some other nibbles! Here’s to the end of another successful year and we are looking forward to what 2017 will bring!
