Last week, The Orchard’s European offices had its annual get together, inclusive of our very own ‘Orchard Olympics,’ just to get into the spirit of things!
I already knew we had a pretty special team with a diverse range of skills, talents, passions and interests, but as I surveyed the group over the next 3 days, I really began to understand just what an incredible bunch of people my workmates are! Nay, not just that I work with, but people that make things happen for our company, clients and our accounts.
When I looked around, this is what I saw: The USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Italy, Spain, Denmark, India and The Netherlands. I also came across a Classical expert, a Dance music buff, an Electronica DJ, a Blues man (or two), a Michael Jackson fanatic, a Metal head and several Indie hipster kids. But that was only scratching the surface! I also found a breakdancer, a few boxers, a yogi, a vegan, many football fanatics, some karaoke superstars (and some that were not), some savvy speakers, some smooth talkers, some quirky eaters (Chinese-style frog legs anyone?) and a couple of wild style dressers!
We were old(er), young guns, interns, company founders, territory leaders, CEOs, client managers, operations, marketing, business development, physical and artist services — some of us with all things rolled into one!
Phew…! That’s alot of good people, from a load of diverse places, doing many great things!
So, it really struck me, The Orchard is not just about our great technology, it’s truly about our people — all kinds of people, everywhere. We have someone that can help you with anything, and in many languages! Need a hand with that next Michael Jackson karaoke performance? Perhaps in a Metal style? Just let us know… we’ve got just the person to help!
