The Business Development team celebrated the end of the financial year with a Team Planning Day on a glorious Friday in East Fremantle.
Sean, Diana, Rashmi and I were excited about the day, as it was the first time we planned such an event together.
For starters, we picked a fabulous location, away from the office called “A Place to Just Be”. Wrapped in lush green foliage, our peaceful surroundings (complete with a koi pond) was just what we needed to get our creative juices flowing for a dynamic day of planning. A bonus? We had the place ALL to ourselves.
So what did we do all day you ask? Mapping our future plans and getting to know the team even better were the objectives of the day. Our agenda was packed with a good balance of serious let’s-get-some-planning-work-done and entertaining team building activities.
After completing a thorough SWOT analysis, two interesting personality tests which taught us more about each other, working out our Team Culture and Team Vision and sharing our experiences at Rise (the good and the awkward)- we rewarded ourselves with a yummy late luncheon at The Left Bank. Being the foodies we are, there’s nothing like ending a Team Planning Day with deep fried seafood, meaty pizza and lovely views of Freo’s coast!

Like a well oiled machine, the day was truly a team effort; right from planning the team building activities to ensuring we picked a great location – so thank you everyone for making the day super productive as well as fun.
We are looking forward to smashing the next year ahead and achieving greater things for Rise.
