2017 has been incredible for Mexia! From being named the 8th BEST place to work in Australia (under 100 employees) by GPTW Australia to receiving the prestigious honour of being announced Microsoft 2017 Australia Partner of the Year - we truly achieved our new year's goal of making this our biggest and best year yet.
Ain't no party like a Mexia party
As we always say, none of this would be possible without our special team of unicorns. Their endless dedication and commitment to delivering the highest quality of work is evident every single day and this festive time of year allows us to celebrate all of them and Mexia's success as a whole. Yet again, Mexia got the entire team and partners together for an all expenses paid weekend and the bar was raised even higher at Mexmas 2017!
Saturday Afternoon: Vitamin D
This year, the team packed all of their beach gear and jetsetted to Novotel Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast in QLD. The blissful weekend started with a custom Mexia BoxBetty, followed by a bartender greeting us with a cold beer or champagne on the beach where a delicious lunch had been set up for everybody. Having had lots of quality time for both the QLD & MEL team to catch up with each other here, it was soon activity time. This years' activities included: Segways, Paintball, Kayaking and sailing - the ultimate fun in the sun!
Luckily, everybody returned intact, (albeit slightly bruised from paintballing) and ready to kick on at the evening party where the theme was 'All that glitters'. Special mention to Ben Place for his bedazzled shirt and Tim Fleming who took his arts & crafts skills to the next level and appeared in a t-shirt with a sparkly Mexia logo on it.
All That Glitters
Intertwined into this part of the evening, were the heartfelt thank you's to the team from Mat, Dean & Calvin, as well as celebrating special personal highlights of this year and continuing our tradition of presenting our new unicorns with their Mexia name/number polo.
After feasting by the lake whilst drinking our very own Mexia cocktails, the night came to an end - but not before Harry & Jean turned into Michael Jackson for some seriously impressive dance solos and the team managed to belt out one final tune for the night - a rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody that Queen would've been proud of!
As always, breakfast in the morning was spent nursing headaches, wondering if it was too early to eat some 'hangover cure' donuts from the buffet and laughing at all of the stories from the night before.
A huge thank you goes to our Office Coordinator Ingrid who organised the entire weekend, and adds sparkle to the office all year round. Dean, Mat & Calvin go out of their way to ensure these amazing events happen every year, and we as a team are eternally grateful.
Merry Mexmas & Happy New Year to all!
