What We’ve Been Up To
Outside of our client work, we collectively participate in several events throughout the year including an annual beach day, community service events, and more! Check out some of our recent events below. We also contribute internally to a number of industry-focused publications.
MILESTONE YEAR I TRAINING (NOVEMBER 2019)
In November, our one-year Associates attended their Milestone Year I Training at the UCLA Luskin Center. Participants engaged in a series of practice exercises focused on enhancing presence and presentation skills when interacting with teams and clients. Things were taken to a whole new level of fun in the afternoon, with a surprise improv class “yes, and” then a celebratory team dinner!
DIDIPALOOZA TEAM EVENT (NOVEMBER 2019)
In celebration of another successful Dream It Do It (D.I.D.I.) event, the 2019 DIDI planning team took the afternoon off from work to enjoy some delicious sashimi and tuna crunch rolls at the famous Nobu Malibu. The scenery included beautiful views of the ocean as well as A-list celebrities. No, unfortunately, we did not bother them to take a picture with us, so this team picture will have to suffice.
FRIDAY FORUM GOURD DECORATING (NOVEMBER 2019)
It was Friday Forum, November 1st and we opted to skip the pumpkin decorating (that’s so October 2019…) and move right into everyone’s favorite Fall pastime, gourd decorating! Of course, no gourd decorating day is complete without a “Most Adored Gourd Award” competition. It was no question that “Gordon,” pictured in the orange bowtie and gourd-eous smile, was a standout and ultimately took home the W.
HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST (OCTOBER 2019)
This year’s annual SBCG Halloween Contest had to have been the most competitive yet! From “Mother of Dragons” to “Door from the Shining,” we covered a lot of ground (and even a few inanimate objects). Ultimately, the best in show went to the cast of “Up” who not only went full-out with costumes and make-up, but even utilized a real-life golden retriever as the character Doug to sweeten their photo submission.
MILESTONE YEAR II TRAINING (SEPTEMBER 2019)
Our Senior Associates attended their Milestone Year II Training on Project Management at the Surf and Sand Resort right on the beach in Laguna Beach, CA. Participants learned best practices in communication, managing teams, project planning, and giving feedback by day, and enjoyed a steak and lobster team celebration dinner by night.
