Picture this – it’s a beautiful summer’s day, the sun is shining, and you have just boarded The Matthew of Bristol, ready to set sail around Bristol harbourside whilst munching on a great big portion of fish and chips.
Doesn’t sound too shabby for a Thursday afternoon, does it?!
That’s right. All of the hard work, creativity and commitment shown by each and every team member at Speed most definitely does not go unrecognised. This is why the agency as a whole was treated to some time out of the office with a jam-packed day full of activities to allow for plenty of socialising and fun!.
Our strong team culture plays a huge part in our success at Speed and we want everyone to feel welcomed and supported, which is why days like this are incredibly important.
As briefly mentioned, the annual Speed Summer Party kicked off at none other than the Bristol harbourside, where we were invited onto The Matthew of Bristol to embark on a journey around the historic Bristol floating harbour. Here we enjoyed some outstanding views of our city whilst sipping on a selection of cold drinks and indulging in delicious Bristolian fish and chips.
The team then ventured off to their next location to sample a wide selection of gins, courtesy of Espensen Spirit – the fantastic gin company founded by no other than our lovely office manager, Sam Espensen! Here, the team learnt a great deal about the history of each gin and why certain ingredients complement one another, and even put forward some of their own questionable flavours for Espensen Spirit to distil (or perhaps not!).
This takes us to the final part of the night where our Speedsters took to the stage to perform some of their favourite anthems, ranging from The Sugababes to Oasis, and resulting in the lyrics of Tequila by Terrorvision circling around in our heads for days afterwards!
And what a night it was… and we can’t wait until next year!
