Set on the enchanting banks of the Douro river outside the Portuguese city of Porto and not far from KOKET’s headquarters, the Pousada do Porto, Palácio do Frexio Hotel exudes design inspiration making it a perfect setting for KOKET. Of course, the fact that the luxury furniture brand’s stunning Intuition table graces the hotel’s lobby doesn’t hurt either! A perfect setting for a day-long event designed to analyze the brand’s year to date, promote creativity, boost company morale and create a better more focused team.

The Meeting

The morning was all about business as each department head presented the results of the semester and their goals for the remainder of the year. This portion of the meeting consisted of some essential components of team building – cross-company transparency (knowledge of the company as a whole, not just your department), and feedback and accountability (sharing goals with the group invites feedback and creates accountability).
