Team Bonding: The Score Cottage Weekend

This past weekend, Score Promotions and our sister company Trillium Sales Group headed up north for a couple days of team bonding. We work together in a tight environment for over 40 hours a week, so spending time together outside of the office to learn more about each other personally was a great way to bond and strengthen relationships. Head management also surprised the group with custom sweaters celebrating the weekend in true Promotional Marketing Industry fashion.

Below is a heartfelt message from one of the cottage weekend attendees. We believe this truly sums up the heartfelt bonding that occurred during our time together outside of work.

“Good Morning Everybody,

 I just wanted to extend a sincere Thank you to all for sharing your company with me this weekend  

 Being able to cook for the lot of you is something I won’t forget.  I want to make mention there was a secret ingredient I added to every dish. I’m sure some of you even tasted it.  

 Love and joy. :)

 It was pure joy to see so many of you and your significant others enjoy your time. 

I say it clearly that it was all a labour of love to make it happen.  

 Thank you everybody for adding your individual flavours and spices of life to another successful gathering.”
