It’s been a few months since we moved to the office in Fyshwick, opened up Work Canberra and launched the Future Tribe Podcast. I knew I wanted to host a small gathering to thank everyone who helped along the way but I wasn’t sure on how large it should all be. There was a discussion about inviting all our clients, family and friends – but we were concerned about the lack of space to host so many people. Finally, though, we made the call to host a small gathering with family and friends as a way to say thank you to everyone who helped with ideas, putting together furniture and putting their hand up when we needed help.
What was initially planned as a small celebration between friends and family eventually turned into a fairly sizeable event with some nibbles, drinks and a whole lot of thank yous!
I’m happy that the night itself reflected what Futuretheory is all about, creating a welcoming environment where people can come and get to know each other in an authentic setting. There were no long-winded speeches, no ribbon-cutting or any other spectacles. It was simply a night where people from all walks of life came together to converse, celebrate and most importantly, enjoy some really nice food (thanks Krofne and Silk Cafe for the amazing spread).
Looking back on the messages people wrote on the canvas (that I plan to frame and keep to mark this milestone), I am grateful to have so many supportive people in my life and it is another reason to be excited about this new space and the future (no pun intended) of Futuretheory.
For clients, as well as anyone else who was unable to make it, please feel free to drop in. I can’t guarantee tasty doughnuts, but I’d love to catch up and show you around the space.
