Annual Retreat 2013

ByEleanor Hopkins

The team at Ray White Cranbourne enjoyed two full days away from the office at their annual retreat recently. This year’s event was staged at Phillip Island and involved both local and interstate speakers. The theme for the retreat was teamwork and this was intertwined through both days with mental and physical activities. The first day involved a car rally from the office in Cranbourne to the venue, during which the teams attended a variety of venues, obtained lots of funny photos and collection items and had a great time doing so. This was then followed up with speakers throughout the afternoon, including Shelley Mc Dowell (Ray White Head of Customer Experience / Marketing) and James Price (Ray White Corporate Auctioneer for NSW); both speakers gave very insightful and entertaining presentations that were very well received by the team.

The team enjoyed dinner and some drinks followed by the presentation of the annual office awards. Sales person of the year went to the Ringeri Team after another great year by the team, Our award for Excellence in Property Management was awarded to a very deserving Maree Gladstone and her assistants for the year, Lizzy Maddaluno and Brooke Patterson. Our new award for Excellence in growth went to Chaminda Gunasekara, acknowledging not only the growth within his business, but also his willingness to utilise new technologies and processes. The fun award of Tool of the year was awarded to Malcolm Whiston, a popular choice after some humorous moments he provided the team throughout the year. The Directors Award was won by Jodie Hanssen. Congratulations to all the very deserving winners, well done to all.

The second day of the retreat was activity based and the team worked well in progressing their way through a team rescue situation that required everyone to work together and communicate. The team then participated in an 18 metre high swing and a 200 metre long flying fox. It was great to see so many people encouraging, assisting, and supporting each other to achieve the result or complete the activity.

Many new ideas were suggested for the year ahead and decisions made about areas of focus. Lots of fun was also had by all, plus the added bonus of increased team work, and the achievements of many who faced their fears during some of the physical activities, assisted by a wonderfully supportive team.

We are already looking forward to next year’s retreat.
