Following nearly 18 gruelling months of remote working and online meetings, the Billmonitor team were finally reunited at our MD Klaus Henke’s home in June for a Summer BBQ.
It was a wonderful evening, which enabled us to continue to develop that team bond that is such a crucial factor in Billmonitor’s success. During the pandemic, we have been lucky enough to continue growing, so the company event was also a great opportunity to meet the new recruits in person.
The evening was a real success, with hosts Klaus and Deepa ensuring plates were full with delicious food and no glass was left empty for long. We were also treated to the delightful one-off original home brewed ‘Hoptimor' beer, supplied by Jake from the dev team, while our public sector specialist Sam wowed us with a surprise plate of wonderful homemade samosas. Even the unpredictable English weather played along, with sunshine and a warm evening enabling us to sit outside in the garden until late into the night.
As the world continues to slowly open up, we can only hope that opportunities like this one will become the norm again. Being able to continue our work online throughout the pandemic has been a blessing, but nothing quite beats a face-to-face chat and a fire on a beautiful Summer’s evening.
