From getting down on the dance floor to exploring the scenic views, The Mvula Trust National Staff workshop proved to be an unforgettable occasion for many of the staff members in the organisation.
After what seemed to be endless hours of travelling, the first order of the day was putting our culinary skills to the test with the Potjiekos competition which unravelled hidden talent within the organisation. There were spills, cuts and lots of running around, negotiating for ingredients. However, fun was had and tummies were filled.
At The Mvula Trust, we don’t only play hard but we work hard too, as our CEO, Mr. Silas Mbedzi provided an overview of where the organisation is and where it should be heading. As stated by the CEO in his presentation, with planning and hard work, The Mvula Trust is proving to be a force to be reckoned with. After a day of sightseeing and exploring, people scrubbed down and took to the red carpet for the Gala Evening. Dresses and suits of all colours came out to play and I must say TMT staff clean up nicely! Congratulations to all those who received recognition for their hard work and dedication to the organisation. It just goes to show that hard work and dedication goes a long way. The Elephants were announced as being the winners of the Potjiekos competition, so well done to them. After all the formalities, it was time to get down on the dance floor and oh boy, did people get down on the dance floor!
The competitive spirit came out in full force during the survivor challenge where we saw everyone battle to be victorious during various challenges and war cries. The team that proved victorious was the Elephants. A big congratulations to them!
Later that evening, we saw angels gather at the all-white gala evening where there was good food, and the drinks were flowing. We’d like to give a special shout out to Lloyd, our very own knight in shining armour, who came to our rescue and kept everyone on the dance floor.
A special thanks to Warren of Discovery who provided some useful information and the Discovery team for availing themselves for testing that took place, Andrew who came out for the photo-shoot that took place and captured those special moments, and mostly to the entertainment committee whom without them we wouldn’t have been able to bond and make new memories.
