Friday 11th May saw Technophobia staff taking on the true meaning of a first year celebration by reliving our childhoods and embracing some juvenile birthday party fun.
Fun, games and of course plenty of food
It’s a year since our acquisition by Capita plc and the past 12 months have been both rewarding and hard work. To celebrate the occasion we decided to host a birthday party Technophobia style. The party theme was ‘One Year Old’ so children’s party food and decorations were all in evidence as well as nostalgic cartoons clips.
Alongside an extremely well-stocked buffet table, several games added to the theme’s authenticity. One particularly popular activity was 'Pin the Tie On the Colleague', which of course, involved a blindfold and much hilarity.
There were also more food-focussed tasks being completed and .NET developer, Ollie Caine, fought off strong competition by eating a grand total of 26 marshmallows in a minute... using chopsticks. An Xbox tournament, board games and a paper aeroplane launch provided team-based entertainment and were a fantastic contrast of those games we all remembered and enjoyed, mixed with those we can't stop playing now.
All in all, far too many E numbers were consumed, but a great time was had and it was a fun way to end the week, and indeed the year since the takeover.
There’s so much more to come than the relatively short time that has passed since last April, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds as Technophobia, part of Capita plc.
