ADC goes wild!
Event Identity Development + Event Management
How do you bring together a team that was assembled during the onset of the covid-19 pandemic? What creative language would bring together a team that has never met? These were the questions that were posed to us as a team by the planning team at ADC. 80% of the team members (360 people) had never met in person, all their interaction has been virtually over the last 24 months.
Given that this was an out-of-the-city event, we develop a theme that would resonate with the location, excite the team to show up and most important of all be memorable to them - "ADC in the wild". We developed an interactive and engaging program over the course of 3 days that entailed a strategy meeting, team-building exercises and a gala dinner that recognized the very best employees for FY21/22. To cap it all, the team held a successful event over the 3 days that culminated in the first-ever gala dinner and employee awards.
From Africa to the World!
The Africa Development Center celebrates the heritage and future of Africa. It highlights the ingenuity of the African spirit dedicated towards the realisation of Microsoft’s goals - in the role Microsoft plays in people’s lives today, and in the increasing breadth of unexpected and innovative products that we are delivering. The team at ADC believes in what people make possible. The Africa Development Center stands in awe of what people dare to achieve, and it aims to help them in all aspects of their lives. Everything they do is grounded in this belief - The African Spirit.
It’s why every engineer comes to work, why they innovate and why they create technology that empowers people to thrive, in ordinary and extraordinary ways, every single day.
