Breteau Foundation Strategy & Team Building Week, London 2022
The last time the entire BF team were physically together was in South Africa in 2016.
It was therefore such a tremendous occasion that the global Breteau Foundation (now slightly larger in size) flew into London to reap the benefits of meeting face-to-face, think together as a group, strategize and review our organizational programmes and priorities.
Country programme managers from Lebanon, South Africa, Colombia, Mexico and Czech Republic arrived in London to meet with the UK team in May. For some of us, it was our first time meeting each other and for others, it was a reunion after many years and since the global pandemic.
This was our opportunity to work together in-person as a team, take the time to understand one another’s approach and work styles, what makes us all tick and what motivates us to work for the Foundation. It was an invaluable week to reinforce and strengthen our organizational strategy, mission and goals as well as our relationships. Our key objectives for the visit were to:
- Revisit and evaluate the Foundation’s mission and vision
- Review and assess existing and future education programmes across the regions we operate in
- Strengthen our global M&E framework
- Strengthen our working culture through team building activities
