Kenya

Some photos from the Coko team meeting in Kenya. It was a very productive and fun week. We have a team member in Kenya (Richard) so it was great to visit where he lives (our accommodation for the meetings was next door to his place). It’s great to go where the team is. Last year, we had a meeting in Athens and saw the ‘home’ of Cokos Yannis and Christos.

I can recommend a safari for team-building. If your team is in Africa or nearby (most of our team is in central Europe), Kenya is easy to get to and accommodation and food are cheap and good. A safari is also very well priced, far cheaper than any similar (if there is anything similar to safari!) team-building exercise you could think of in Europe or Northern America. Richard and his partner Steph are starting a locally owned safari business with the intention that it will become under local control and ownership (they are working with some Maasai friends), so if you are interested in safaris as as a team-building exercise, let me know and I’ll put you in touch.

The last photos are of our team dinner at the end of the week. As you can see, most people were pretty tired by this point. Tired but happy!

It was truly an extraordinary week and our team came out of it with a sharp focus and stronger bonds. As we say at Coko (coined by Charlie) “Software is a conversation.” Awesome.
