Life at FreshMinds: behind the scenes of our summer away day

Last Friday we were lucky enough to spend the day at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre in Canary Wharf for our company away day.

The away day gave us chance to celebrate the successes of H1 and share our plans to keep up the great momentum for the rest of the year. It was also a good opportunity to share some of the great things we’ve been up so far this year. We heard about some of the exciting projects we’ve been working on spanning everything from the future of mobility to emerging trends in banking and finance. Plus, we got chance to experience some of the amazing work our tech team has been doing with augmented reality and virtual reality first-hand.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a FreshMinds away day without a bit of friendly – or should that be fierce – competition. We swapped our pens and post-its for paddles and set off dragon boat racing down the River Thames. Turns out there’s nothing like facing off against your colleagues in a dragon boat to bring out your competitive side. My team will have to put losing the race by a couple of milliseconds behind us … that is until next year.

Take a look at our short video from the away day and some of our favourite photos from the day:
