Summer is over and it’s back to business – the perfect time to rally your team with an out-of-the-box teambuilding event. There’s been a buzz in the business press lately about how teambuilding is more important to the success of organizations than we ever thought.

And, if you want to plan a great event – for clients, staff or both – give us a call at F1 Boston, our professional meeting planners will help your team achieve its' goals and ensure everyone has a great time along the way!

 When it comes to holiday party etiquette, we’ve all heard the advice:

“Don’t Over Indulge” – but it’s also a great opportunity to improve your standing, professionally.

Company holiday parties can be a great time to have fun with co-workers, but they also offer an opportunity to:

  • Make a good impression on your boss or the management team;
  • Network with colleagues that could help you with career goals
  • Get to know people you don’t interact with during normal work activities.

Our friends at Monster.com have come up with a great list of tips on how to get the most out of office holiday parties that we’re sharing on the F1 Blog.

Enjoy the advice and have a great holiday season.

DON'T FORGET, if you’re looking for the ideal location for your company’s holiday celebration, give F1 Boston’s party planners a call or email – we’ll help you throw a party they’ll talk about for years to come.
