All Work and Lots of Play – Year End Planning Retreat

This past weekend with work we had our year-end planning retreat, our theme was Mission Possible…because with this group, we know the impossible IS possible.

The retreat is a chance for us to go off site away from the office/lab/barn/farm and reflect on the year gone by and plan ahead for the year to come.

It was a clear crisp gorgeous few days spent in Vancouver with meetings at Science World, discussions on personal as well as professional matters with David Phillips, adventures at Smarty Pantz escape rooms, dinner at Tap & Barrel.  After an overnight stay at hotel in the big city we were back to meetings and the various departments shared presentations,  reviewed budgets, set goals, etc, yet still taking time to enjoy lunch at Craft Beer Market, then wrapping up meetings and finishing it all off with a Christmas party at CinCin in the evening.

Sure there was work involved but this year it felt like a whole lot of fun…especially since most of us love what we do and who we get to work with.
