Berlin, 13th of July 2015. 380 COSMO CONSULT colleagues from all over Europe travelled to Berlin for the annual conference on June 26th. A sporty afternoon program and a big festive evening event formed the settings for a relaxed atmosphere and gave the COSMO CONSULT employees many opportunities to celebrate the successful transnational cooperation of the past year.
It was the first time that the COSMO CONSULT employees from all over Europe came together to a large convention in Berlin - and were separated at once, but only for a short time. International teams were built for the biggest challenge of the day: A dragon boat race in front of the historical backdrop of the Olympic Regatta Course “Grunau” in Southeast Berlin. 24 well-mixed teams battled with the elements, the flow and trying to find the right rhythm when paddling. Overcoming a slightly bad omen because of the name, team “Titanic” won with a considerable lead over the nearest competitor.
Another historic setting was part of the evening event: a restaurant at the western riverside from where you have a direct view over the Spree to the famous “East Side Gallery” – the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall. The unique blend of Kreuzberg industrial architecture and modern club ambiance was a perfect setting for an informal and international exchange of experiences and networking for the COSMO CONSULT colleagues from France, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain and Germany.
A thoroughly enjoyable event. All participants left the next day with the feeling of belonging to a unique team and happily look forward to attending the conference next year.
