Leading SA Investment Bank left shipwrecked!

Case Study : working and communicating as a team

Client Brief:

Large South African Investment Bank approached us to help them with an event for their product and marketing teams, for them to be recognised with their first offsite reward for all their hard work.

Our Thinking:

We decided to deliver a personalised, highly organised two day off site event that would be memorable and unique leaving attendees feeling valued, invested in and motivated.

From working with major clients such as Barclays, PwC and Microsoft, Chillisauce understands that this level of investment has measurable benefits; staff retention, productivity and communication (especially with regards to new divisions).

The Finer Details:

Osea is an enchanting and exclusive private island located surprisingly close to central London. It sits serenely on the Blackwater Estuary surrounded by four and a half miles of its own beaches and coastline
