2013 Year End Function Ideas

It’s that time again when the company wants and needs to celebrate the year end and all the hard work and achievements of 2013.  We always feel for the poor soul who gets tasked with organising the year end function – finding a venue, an activity, a meal or combinations thereof to keep everyone happy and feeling appreciated whilst meeting the boss’s Budget requirements.

All companies big and small seek out that perfect combination which takes time, effort, lots of shopping around, lots of presentations  to ensure the right combination of venue, activity, facilities, service and price are met.  Get it right and the staff can relax, have fun, acknowledge their achievements and chat to each other as people and not mere work colleagues.

Cape Point Route has lots of ideas and suggestion but here are some suggestions for  making that Year End Function plan a little easier to organize. Please call us as all ideas can be combined or amended to suit company requirements to ensure a successful year end function.
