WeQ’s Holly Jolly
Have a holly, jolly Christmas…! With the festive season upon us, the Christmas spirit has been fully embraced at WeQ HQ. We kicked off with a great initiative called Christmas in a Shoebox. We got together last month to wrap some presents for children in need so they can be delivered on time.
We made sure last week that our Christmas Tree is nicely decorated and officially began indulging in Christmas sweets and baked goods…not that we need so many excuses. Hello gingerbread and Pfeffernüsse!
On Friday, the 6th of December the time has finally come for the main, highly-anticipated, Christmas event. We started with an inspiring speech from our Managing Director, Sven Lubek, followed by some bubbly, festive goodies and the good old-fashioned Bingo. We really enjoyed it since it gave us a chance to win some cool prizes and also award great colleagues for outstanding performances during the year.
After the exciting Bingo game it was time for WeQ’s first Karaoke bash! WeQ has talent, we are not only super fast runners and skillful paddlers but we also know how to rock it with a microphone in our hand. Our colleagues have been creating the playlist of favourite songs for a while so you can just imagine the musical gems saved on there. We sang our hearts out to the beats of famous Christmas songs, the 90s hits and also some classics.
At 7pm it was time to leave the office and hop on a bus to get to the Christmas Wonderland Market at Gendarmenmarkt. As Berliners we are very fond of them and love their festive atmosphere. The one at Gendarmenmarkt is one of the most beautiful ones so we were glad to have a chance to explore it before gathering at WeQ’s private dinner tent for a special meal. A three-course feast was prepared for us by the Chef’s of the renowned Pfefferberg Restaurant.
Traditional Christmas dishes like the goose, were cooked and presented with a modern twist and we had also delicious options for our vegans and vegetarians.
Credit for this fantastic festive celebration goes to our events superstar Vanessa Ferreira for organizing and masterminding the event. Special thanks goes to all the helpers too!
On that note, we’d like to thank our amazing colleagues and dear friends for joining us in celebrating the past year at this truly festive and fun event. Here’s to another great year!
