After various scenic and staff full and friendly carpool drives up to Muskoka’s Deerhurst Resort for the Ace Acumen Annual Staff Retreat, everyone arrived safe and sound to the conference room, where Gene Lai, our amazing HR representative awaited us with his amazing presentation on teamwork.
Thankfully, Ace Acumen requested the resort provide coffee and snacks because a coffee is just what everyone needed after the little 2 hour road trip.
Gene began the professional development session reminding us of Ace Acumen’s core values. He then went on to explain to us the Accident Investigation Policy. Finally, he began the bread and butter of the session, his presentation on teamwork, which allowed us all to interact with each other as a team, which was very fitting.
This put us in the exact spirit we were going to need to build boats as a team out of cardboard and tape. We then got to test them out on the lake, which our brave team captains graciously volunteered to do.
We all proceeded after our lake voyages to our well-deserved staff dinner. Overall, as usual, another successful staff retreat.
