Simon Healey: For our All Day Company Meeting we went to a space in Bucktown where we did a little bit of sales brainstorming, and activities in the morning and then some cooking in the afternoon.
Chris Vasquez: This one was my first all day company meeting. It was a really fun experience.
Jimmy Condon: It was nice to get out of the office and eat some delicious food.
Chris Vasquez: For the first part of the day we worked on sales meetings and cross selling.
Jimmy Condon: Then we had a keynote speech from Ken.
Megan Lentine: We got into a lot of cool sales action. We had a few really good brainstorms.
Jimmy Condon: After that then we did DMC elevator pitches.
Megan Lentine: I think it's tough for people to think on their toes, but I think when you prepare first you can have a really good elevator pitch. That's why it was great for us to take the time to really think about it.
Simon Healey: I think it was good to think about different ways that we can be efficient in the sales process and different ways to network with people.
Jimmy Condon: That took us to lunch. We went downstairs and started cooking.
Chris Vasquez: The cooking aspect was really fun. We all had different stations that we had to work on. My favorite food, personally, was the bacon wrapped dates.
Megan Lentine: Fish tacos.
Simon Healey: Smoked salmon wrap.
Megan Lentine: Coconut fried shrimp.
Chris Vasquez: Apple pie strudel thing.
Jimmy Condon: Thai chicken.
Megan Lentine: Butternut squash quesadillas.
Simon Healey: Tomatoes, vegetables, all kinds of things.
Megan Lentine: I was like yum-yum give me some. It was delicious.
Simon Healey: All Day Company Meeting days are a good way to just kind of get away from the normal project work and just kind of get out of the office for a little bit and spend some time with your co-workers.
Megan Lentine: It was great to think and brainstorm and be with people in a unique environment outside of our own daily unique environment at DMC.
