Strategy and team building day

On Saturday 12 May the members of the board of YoungShip Oslo and the committees came together for a strategy and team building day.

The day started at the offices of SANDS where Katrine welcomed all followed by a session of brainstorming technics by Emilie. The participants where then divided into groups and had a solid one and a half hour to discuss and brainstorm about an idea or a concept for a seminar during fall 2018, how to benefit from the members knowledge and how to better connect with the other branches of YoungShip in Norway. After the group discussions, everyone gathered for a plenary discussion where each group presented their ideas. Lots of good ideas and concepts was proposed and the board of YoungShip Oslo concluded on some ideas and how to proceed.

Once the brainstorming session ended, it was due for some teambuilding activity at Escape Room. The concept is to enter a room with, in our case, two scary background stories and solve problems, find codes and solutions to escape the room within one hour. Two groups were formed, and the game was on! Safe to say that one group did much better that the other which needed several extra clues and time to be able to escape.

The day was concluded with dinner and drinks at Emilie’s mums apartment (many thanks!) where lots of chefs made surprisingly little mess while making taco.

Thank you all for a great day! We look forward to continuing to work with the many excellent ideas that came up during the strategy session. The members of YoungShip Oslo can expect some exiting new events during the years to come.
