Every summer, the entire WeddingWire team to comes together for a day of team-building, learning and fun at WeddingWire Collaborate.
Collaborate is a one-day off-site conference for WeddingWire staff. The first half of the day is when all employees come together for an extensive all-hands meeting where we reflect on accomplishments made so far this year and followed by important updates about our upcoming ideas, products and programs. The afternoon is spent doing team-building activities which bring together members of different departments to work together, problem solve, communicate and get creative!
This year, we celebrated Collaborate 2014 at The Westin Annapolis! Our team-building activities were facilitated through two representatives from TrainingPath, who led our staff through a variety of games designed to create situations where our team had to work together (or against each other!) to reach a common goal. While it was all “fun and games,” our staff realized our greater potential working together to achieve the best results. Our Executive Team also unveiled this year’s Collaborate video, which featured a spoof of a famous scene in the movie Zoolander.
A special addition this year was our involvement with Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County! We were proud to welcome members of the BGCAA who explained their organization and the importance of their work. To thank BGCAA for all their great work in the community, our team built and donated bikes for the children in the organization! We had a great time building bikes for kids whose lives will be changed dramatically by receiving such a seemingly small gesture.
We capped the day with food and cocktails, and reflected on another great WeddingWire Collaborate! Check out some of the photo highlights below.
