Spreaker Spring Retreat 2016

0

We’re back to our homes and desks after an exhilarating four days spent together in a small village close to Bologna, Italy.

This has been the first retreat of 2016 (our last one was this past December in Barcelona), and it’s become another testament to my personal feeling that the more we get to stay and play together, the more the team grows!

We had some really cool moments together, like personally welcoming aboard new team members we’ve been speaking with on Slack for months (which, you know, is weird! but is also one of the more mysterious sides of the remote working). We shared a gorgeous home out in the hills of Italy, cooking, sleeping, working, and just chilling out. It was also the first time Rob had ever been to Italy (he’s still surprised about how Italians cook pasta).

As it happens during professional events, we had a detailed schedule. Here are the highlights from these truly awesome days together:

Spreaker Retreat in Barcelona

As most of you know, Spreaker‘s teammates work remotely, connecting from 5 different countries and three different time zones. This means lots of emails, Skype calls, Google Hangouts, Slack channels, and one retreat a year when we can finally get together to have face to face meetings and brain storming sessions.

And it’s finally that time again; we’re about to set off on our retreat in Barcelona, from December 9th until the 14th, to work cheek to cheek!

Here’s our schedule:

Working Space: We’ve chosen to work from the Talent Garden hub in Barcelona, one of the many Talent Garden offices around Europe, including the Lithuania hub where our UI/UX designer Brigita already works.
