In the spirit of team building, the ellicom team from across Canada gathered in our Montreal offices for our first edition of #ellipalooza, which was a resounding success! ellicomians certainly didn’t disappoint and brought in the best of their creativity, innovation, and team spirit. From the adrenaline junkies, to techies, as well as upper management, ellipalooza was all fun for every participant!
The group was divided into small teams and set out to explore the city, search for “treasures”, and showcase their creativity and hidden strengths as they embarked on a series of unusual challenges. The teams had two main missions: successfully complete as many tasks as possible on the elliList, including finding and jumping in a pool, bring specific items back and complete the elliQuiz. ellicomians had to complete tasks using the material provided in their toolbox, such as chewing gum, skipping ropes and water guns, take a picture or a short video of their team performing the task, tweet it with the hashtag #ellipalooza along with their item number and their team name. Points were allocated for each list item and each correct answer in the quiz.
The ellipalooza event was a dry run for the upcoming Amazing Race fundraiser taking place in September 2017, in collaboration with the LCI Education Foundation. The Amazing Race will be an opportunity to bring together our clients, collaborators and teams, send them on a scavenger hunt across Montreal and raise funds for schools in emerging countries all at the same time.
