This Is What We Call A Proper Offsite!

Recently, the adsquare team got together for a long weekend of team bonding, brainstorming, and proper fun at the marvellous argentinian-style Schloss La Dersentina.

 

Leaving behind to-do lists and schedules, we gathered to bring ideas forward and make powerful decisions, as well as spend some quality time kayaking, cooking dinners for each other, singing and dancing till dawn. It was great!

So what are our three key takeouts from this offsite you’d ask?

 

  1. Working in cross-departmental teams spurs creativity.
    For our workshops, we put people in different teams that do not necessarily work together on daily basis. This helped people express ideas that they might have more freely, and showed us that we should definitely do this more often as it brings great ideas to the table!

 

  1. Having no access to email 24/7 is not the end of the world.
    Setting up our office at La Dersentina brought a few surprises. Soon after arriving to the beautiful castle, we discovered that there is no stable phone reception, and Berlin-quality super fast WiFi connection is an innovation that no one there has yet heard of. This meant that we couldn’t reply to emails non stop, yet it also meant that there were no distractions. We were fully focused on bonding and being productive, which turned out to be the best outcome we could have had!

 

  1. It’s never too late in the night for another drinking game.
    In the evenings, we were gathering for good music and a nice gin and tonic around the fireplace. It won’t be long before someone would jump and come up with a crazy drinking game to play. As we found, you can never have enough of those games, so we often found ourselves still playing at dawn. And trust us, they are even more fun when there are 20 people participating!
