The 10 Degrees Retreat

Written by Lynda Vaughan

The 10 Degrees team are just back from our 3rd annual company retreat.

We introduced having an annual retreat into our work calendar with the objective of having specific time to talk about some of the more strategic (or very technical) conversations that we rarely get the opportunity to have during day-to-day working life. Throw in some team building activities and a sprinkling of social time and we have the ingredients for a very enjoyable productive working weekend.

This year we headed to this incredible Sleeps 12 property in Somerset, it was even better than in the photos! It’s a stunning house, in a beautiful location, with amazing facilities and is extremely well equipped.

We covered business topics such as project scoping, pricing strategies, time recording and project profitability reporting. We got to know each other better through personality profiling and a book club session – where we each brought books that have had an impact on our life in some way.

But it wasn’t all work! We had an incredibly insightful session on wellbeing run by Juls from The Body Retreat, the most delicious vegetarian meal from private chef Fuelled By Liv (the team are still talking about the paneer tikka!) and even an aqua aerobics class in the house pool.

The house’s facilities made it very easy to have some relaxation and social time and after our final activity of pottery painting (new mugs and plants for our desks), we finished off the weekend with a chilled evening in the nordic BBQ hut.

A great weekend of rest, work and play.

Now on to plan the next one…
