Teambuilding, with a Twist
Free to Feed brings PNORS Technology Group to the table
Each year the PNORS Technology Group bring our national sales force and marketing department together for our annual Aligned2Acheive workshop. The aim of this workshop is to brainstorm innovative ideas to enhance the products and services we offer to our clients and to agree our financial goals for the next financial year.
This year, rather than the traditional night before dinner at one of the local restaurants, we chose to do something different, something new and exciting. We decided to challenge the norm and think outside the box to not only link a teambuilding exercise with a unique dining
Free to Feed
The night before Aligned2Achieve, we gathered in the PNORS kitchen and were joined by members of a very special organisation, Free To Feed. Free To Feed is a not-for-profit social enterprise working with refugees to provide an environment to share the stories that led to them taking refuge in Australia and champion their unique skills – in this case, as wonderful chefs.
What better way to bring people together than preparing and sharing a meal. As Free To Feed say, they are a mobile cooking school hosting classes, workshops and community events – from the comfort of your home, in offices or in a group setting.
The vital resources provided by Free to Feed offer participating refugees an invaluable leg-up in opening doors and broadening networks with the ultimate aim of economic empowerment and financial independence.
Nayran is a Syrian refugee who fled her home in Damascus in pursuit of a different life and an escape from the violence and destruction that was sadly affecting her family.
Nayran left Syria as a wealthy woman and due to an unfortunate turn of events, found herself with nothing more than the clothes on her back and the need to support her family. An extremely challenging journey eventually led Nayran to our shores and she is now proud to call Australia home.
I can confidently say that
All I could think about was how strong Nayran was. I honestly don’t know how many people out there could keep going through what she went through and still sport a large smile. It was at that moment I realised what strength truly meant.
Strength and perseverance are two words that I will consider regularly as I move forward personally and in my Marketing role at PNORS during 2018.
