We just like to have fun!

It’s no secret, we like to have fun at work!
While we take our work seriously and want to constantly improve our product for our users, it’s also important to unwind and socialise as a team.
In today's blog post we'll show you some of the activities we've gotten up to recently when we've stepped away from our laptops.
The Engineering team met up for a workshop in April, where we covered important topics (read our Engineering Workshop blog for the meaty details) but also enjoyed being together as a group:
Then, a bit of axe throwing helped to round up a good day…
We hosted our Advocacy Engineered conference in London with 10 speakers and over 190 senior marketers, where we talked about all things customer advocacy.
The team attended the conference to listen to the talks and take in the atmosphere, and we all had lunch at our local pub, The Pilgrim. Plus, we got a branded t-shirt!
To finish off a great day, there was an after-party with a live band where we celebrated together as a company.
Alex (centre at the back) is quite tall but not that tall - he’s standing on a chair!
We couldn’t have asked for a better day to go on a boat trip along the Thames. It was a sunny afternoon and more than 25 of us spent a few hours having fun on the river. After which, we continued our celebrations in a riverside bar for more food and drinks…
We also like to have fun as a whole company — our most recent event was the Summer Party!
Dulwich Sports Club didn’t know what hit them when we took over the field for a few classic sports games (think egg & spoon and sack racing).
Everyone in the company is split into houses (yes…like Hogwarts!), so there were serious points up for grabs, adding to the tension. After an afternoon of activities, we continued the party in the clubhouse for more food and drinks…
There we also have regular clubs for people to get involved in:
- Running 🏃♀️🏃♂️
- Board games 🎲
- Chess ♟♞
- Poker ♠️♥️♣️♦️
- Book 📚
Working hard but having fun along the way is a big part of the culture at Mention Me.
